The verdict is in! The new ‘Night Court’ series has now been officially renewed for Season 2 by NBC.
The renewal for a second season of the new ‘Night Court’ arrives only 4 episodes into its debut season which delivered strong numbers for NBC. The series marks the number 1 broadcast premiere of the 2022-23 season in both the 18-49 demo and total viewers, as well as the number 1 comedy premiere of the 2022-23 season on broadcast or cable in the 18-49 demo and total viewers. The series also has the honor of holding the Season-high performance of any NBC series episode this season in both the demo and total viewers.
Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming commented on the renewal saying “It’s so rewarding to have audiences respond and return to a show in which they have such incredibly warm feelings, and, more broadly, it’s testament to how broadcast is still a huge driver of communal viewing. A huge thank you to our studio partners, a wonderful cast, incredibly talented writers and producers, and a crew that has transformed a lower Manhattan courtroom into a true family.”
Channing Dungey, Chairman and CEO, Warner Bros. Television Group was also quoted and said “The verdict is in and the ‘new-boot’ of ‘Night Court’ is a hit! The series’ razor-sharp humor makes the show a weekly must watch. We’re overjoyed that court will remain in session and return with new cases for season two. We’re so grateful to our colleagues at NBC, to the richly talented creative team led by Melissa Rauch, Winston Rauch, Dan Rubin and John Larroquette, and to the stellar ensemble cast.”
