NBC announced today that Night Court has been renewed for Season 2. The news follows a strong start to the new comedy, coming just four episodes into its run. Since its January 17 debut, the show has reached over 25 million viewers across multiple platforms, becoming the #1 broadcast premiere of the 2022-2023 season.

"It's so rewarding to have audiences respond and return to a show in which they have such incredibly warm feelings, and, more broadly, it's testament to how broadcast is still a huge driver of communal viewing," said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. "A huge thank you to our studio partners, a wonderful cast, incredibly talented writers and producers, and a crew that has transformed a lower Manhattan courtroom into a true family."

A follow-up to the 1984 sitcom of the same name, Night Court follows Abby Stone, the daughter of the late Harry Stone. An eternal optimist, she is following in her father's footsteps by presiding over the night shift of a Manhattan arraignment court. Judge Stone spends her nights trying to bring order to the court's crew of oddballs and cynics, most notably former night court prosecutor Dan Fielding.
