The new Night Court features a star-studded cast, including the ultra-talented Melissa Rauch as Judge Abby Stone and John Larroquette reprising his role as lawyer Dan Fielding. Along with this main cast, an exciting lineup of guest stars has also been announced.
Here's who should you expect to see during the first season of Night Court:
Which guest stars will be on the new Night Court?
Guests stars slated to make appearances include former Saturday Night Live star Melissa Villasenor, comedian Pete Holmes, professional figure skaters Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski, A.P Bio star Lyric Lewis, and actors Kurt Fuller and Stephnie Weir. Meanwhile, Murphy Brown star Faith Ford is set to play Judge Abby Stone’s mother.
“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 about the show.
What should we expect from the new Night Court?
Eternal optimist Judge Abby Stone is the daughter of Judge Harry T. Stone from the iconic original Night Court series. She takes a new job as a Judge at the Manhattan Municipal Court during the night shift and is determined to change people’s lives, including Dan Fielding’s.
Dan Fielding’s character has come a long way since the original Night Court ended in 1992. "He got out of the law system and found somebody he fell in love with and who fell in love with him," he said to TV Insider. "He was content and matured. And then his wife passed away, and he retreated back into this dark cave. Dan is pulled back into the light by Harry’s daughter."
How do I watch the new Night Court on NBC?
Night Court airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC. Episodes will be available for streaming the next day on Peacock.
