NBC has announced the sequel of the 80s classic sitcom “Night Court,” and we all are excited about it. Don’t confuse it with a remake; we have a sequel! Some big names are involved with the show, such as John Larroquette is returning as Dan Fielding. We will have Melissa Rauch, Big Bang Theory alum, as an executive producer on the upcoming series.
Originally we had Judge Harry T. Stone, “a young liberal eccentric Judge.” He presided over the Manhattan Courtroom’s Night Shift, and we all agree that his judgment and views on various cases were not like someone would expect from a judge.
Harry Anderson played Harry Stone. Sadly, we will not see Stone in the upcoming series as he passed away in 2018.
We will have Abby stone as the unapologetic optimist judge in the new series. Abby is the daughter of Harry Stone, and she is following in her father’s footsteps. Abby presides over Manhattan’s arrangement court. We are waiting to see how she will perform and if she’ll be able to take on the iconic role.
It will be fun to see how Abby manages to bring order among the oddballs and cynics, including prosecutor Fielding. Dan Rubin is the writer and executive producer of the show.
Night Court ran from 1984 to 1992. Reinhold Weege was the creator of the series, and Night Court pocketed seven Emmy Awards in total. Larroquette also won several best supporting actor awards for his performance in this show.
There are many people who didn’t get the chance to experience the magic of this show. Even if you want to watch it now, you will be disappointed as you won’t be able to find it. It’s not airing on any of the major streaming services.
We recently saw Larroquette as Gavin Firth in five episodes of Good Fight. Larroquette is also known for his roles in “The Librarians” “Me, Myself and I.” Larroquette won his fifth Emmy in 2002 for his performance as Joey Heric.
30 Rock staged an episode dedicated to an unaired Night Court episode, and after that, it took 12 years to revive the show. Stay tuned to Besttoppers to know the updates on the show.
