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, there's an exciting lineup of guest stars appearing, as well. 

How to Watch

Here's who we saw during the first season of Night Court

Night Court's guest stars: Seasons 1 and 2 

Lyric Lewis

Lewis plays a wedding planner named Cynthia Davies who's infatuated by Dan’s taste in decor and is determined to help him plan his next wedding. 

Kurt Fuller

In Episode 8, Fuller plays District Attorney Jeff Dewitt, who represents a powerbroker in court. A former colleague of Dan’s, Abby tries to help reform Dewitt’s overly-harsh prosecution charges and his office’s tendency to focus on conviction rates. However, her plan backfires as Dewitt plans to use Abby’s information to pin the issues of the city on her. He then has a change of heart after Abby threatens to expose a secret of his unless he takes her research seriously and implements a positive change in the system. 

Where Is the Original Night Court Cast Now?

Melissa Villaseñor

You most likely know Melissa Villaseñor for her time on Saturday Night Live. She rose to fame when her America’s Got Talent Audition (where she performed a bunch of hilariously accurate vocal impressions) went viral.

Wendie Malick

Wendie Malick is best known for her role as Victoria Chase from Hot in Cleveland. In Season 1, Episode 4 of Night Court, Malick plays a woman named Julianne, who Dan goes on a date with. Later, she reveals that she merely expressed interest in him in order to get revenge on him for prosecuting her for a case years ago. Malick reprised her character in Night Court for Season 2, Episode 5. 

Pete Holmes

Pete Holmes is an actor and comedian who's known for his talk show The Pete Holmes Show. As for his character on Night Court, he plays Abby’s fiancé, Rand. He's unseen for the first few episode  because he and Abby are in a long distance relationship.

We see Rand for the first time in Episode 10, when he comes to the city to help Abby train for a marathon.

Johnny Weir 

Johnny Weir is a former Olympic figure skater and current sports commentator. He plays himself in Episode 7, as he comes to the night court to witness a case. Abby is a huge figure skating fan and would love to meet him, yet her train is delayed to the court. 

Tara Lipinski

Tara Lipinski is an Olympic gold-medal winning figure skater. She also does sports and fashion commentary and has a few acting roles under her belt. She appears alongside Johnny Weir in Episode 7 as a witness to a case, reprising their dynamic chemistry. 

Stephnie Weir

Stephnie Weir is known for her time on Mad TV. On Night Court, she plays a podcast Host named Remecca who attempts to expose dirty secrets about Dan and Abby before her shady past gets leaked.

Faith Ford

Faith Ford is widely recognized for her role as Corky Sherwood on the sitcom Murphy Brown. She plays Abby’s mom, Gina, on Night Court, and during her episode, it's revealed that Gina has kept the way that she truly met Abby’s father a secret after all these years

Marsha Warfield 

Marsha Warfield was best known as the third bailiff, Roz Russell, during the OG Night Court. Introduced in Season 4, she was known for her no-nonsense personality. 

In a surprise appearance, Marsha Warfield made a return in the new Night Court universe to reprise her role as Roz. In her last-minute cameo during the Season 1 finale and Season 2 premiere, she found herself in jail after a bachelorette party went haywire in Louisiana. Better yet, Dan Fielding just happened to be her Judge.

Jackie Hoffman 

The iconic comedic actress appeared in a Season 2 Episode of Night Court. Her other recent credits include Only Murders in the Building and Glass Onion. 

Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer

The comedians appeared in Season 2, Episode 4 of Night Court. "I was a huge super fan of Night Court," Scheer told Screen Rant. "What's kind of amazing about getting to go on this version of it is it's the old version of it! It really is. They built the set based on the blueprints of the set they built in the '80s. You step on, and all of a sudden, I felt like I was in my childhood. I look to my right, and there's John Larroquette looking as good as ever. It's a dream come true." 

Jessica St. Clair 

St. Clair guest-starred in Season 2, Episode 5 of Night Court as Heather, a childhood friend of Abby's. In real life, Rauch and St. Clair are good friends. 

"Melissa and I have been friends since we were like 22 years old," St. Clair told Screen Rant. "We also both grew up in New Jersey in very similar towns, and we still see lots of people from high school."

On the character she plays, Heather, St. Clair said, "Everyone has that high school friend that is insane. Lovably insane, but you would have definitely grown out of this friendship, but because of your loyalty, you keep them in your life. What's kind of lovely about the way they work this relationship is you could have done it like they hate each other, or that Abby just hates her, and it's not."

Kunal Nayyar and Jenifer Lewis

Nayyar, Rauch's Big Bang Theory, co-star guest-starred on Season 2, Episode 6 of Night Court, as did iconic actress Lewis, known for roles in Sister Act and What's Love Got to Do With It
