Premiere Leak | NBC's Night Court

 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. 

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

Melissa Villasenior

You most likely know Melissa Villasenior 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 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. 

Pete Holmes

Pete Holmes is an actor and comedian who is known for his talk show The Pete Holmes Show. As for his character on Night Court, he plays Abby’s fiance, Rand. He is unseen for the first few episodes, because he and Abby are in a long distance relationship. He is in upstate New York while Abby moved to Manhattan for her new Judge position, and the two are currently in the process of planning their wedding. 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. 

Lyric Lewis

Lyric Lewis is an actress and writer who is best known for playing the role Stef Duncan in the NBC sitcom A.P Bio. 

Kurt Fuller 

Kurt Fuller’s other roles include appearances on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Psych, The Good Wife, and Supernatural

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 is revealed that Gina has kept the way that she truly met Abby’s father a secret after all these years. 

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.
