The original NBC comedy series Night Court  ran for nine seasons from 1984 to 1992 and starred magician-comedian-actor Harry Anderson as irreverent Judge Harry Stone, who presided over late-night sessions in a Manhattan criminal courtroom.

He was joined in the cast by John Larroquette as prosecutor Dan Fielding, Markie Post as public defender Christine Sullivan, Charles Robinson as court clerk “Mac” Robinson, and Richard Moll and Selma Diamond as bailiffs Bull Shannon and Selma Hacker.

A Night Court reboot was recently announced, which stars Melissa Rauch as Harry’s daughter and new judge Abby Stone. The official trailer indicates that the Night Court reboot will have the same tone as the original, with defendants providing comedic fodder for the judge, prosecutor, defense, and bailiffs. The gavel drops on the Night Court reboot with back-to-back episodes on Jan. 17.

Will the Night Court reboot be on Netflix?

Unfortunately, the Night Court reboot will not be on Netflix, at least not just yet.

In addition to Rauch as Abby Stone, the Night Court reboot will star India de Beaufort as prosecutor Olivia and Lacretta as bailiff Donna “Gurgs” Gurganous. Several of the original cast members are deceased, including Anderson, Post, and Diamond. Larroquette is the only original cast member to be confirmed as returning so far, but Moll is also still alive, well, and working in Hollywood, so it’s possible he could also return for the Night Court reboot.

Where to watch the Night Court reboot

Just like the original series, the Night Court reboot is an NBC property and will air on Tuesdays at 8/7c. The latest episodes will be available to stream on NBC’s website and Hulu.

Rauch is most well-known as Bernadette on The Big Bang Theory, while Lacretta made her name in such Broadway hits as The Book of Mormon and Avenue Q.

Of making the jump from the stage to television, she told Movieweb, “I remember the first guest star that I did. I was so nervous, and I knew because it’s being filmed, I can’t play to the back of the house, because it would just be too big. So I found myself being very stiff and very barely moving my mouth, and they were like, no, no, no, you can relax, you don’t have to be that still! I’ve learned many things since then… Now it just felt like coming full circle getting to do Night Court, coming from the stage, because I was able to play to the back of the house, as it were.”

The mixture of old and new faces in the Night Court reboot makes it as much of a continuation as it is a revival of the original, and gives writers plenty of room to play with going forward.
