The new Night Court is bringing on some seriously awesome guest stars for its first season. “It’s still Night Court, so you’re still gonna have a rowdy circus of perpetrators that wind up there at like 3 o’clock in the morning who will be just as impressive to the audience as the old guest stars,” said John Larroquette to Deadline.

How to Watch

Watch Night Court on NBC and Peacock.

Not only are Faith Ford, Pete Holmes, and Melissa Villasenor all set to make appearances, there's one actress in Episode 4 who plays Dan’s date, Julianne, that you might’ve recognized.  

The actress brings and edge to her Night Court character. Although Julianne acts charming and calm at first to lure Dan Fielding in, once they get back to his apartment, she pulls out the rug from under him. After getting tired of his emotional speech about his late wife, she tells Dan the only reason she reached out to him in the first place was to get revenge on him for prosecuting her for setting fire to her ex-boyfriend’s house 30 years ago. She originally planned to steal his wallet and identity but gave up out of frustration in one hilarious moment.

And in case her face seems and voice sounds strikingly familiar, here’s how you know the actress who plays Dan’s “date” in Night Court.
