Is Night Court Season 2 coming to NBC in January 2024?


NBC’s Night Court, a beloved sitcom known for its courtroom antics and witty humor, is making a triumphant return with its second season, bringing laughter back to viewers’ screens. Set to air in January 2024, this revival of the ’80s series has already captivated audiences with a holiday special titled “A Night Court Before Christmas,” broadcasted on December 23, 2023.

The Christmas-themed episode follows Abby Stone, daughter of the late Harry Stone, as she embarks on a quest with Dan and encounters amusing situations surrounding a little girl’s letter to Santa, unexpected gifts, and a witness who believes herself to be ‘The Ghost of Christmas Present.’ Notably, NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar makes a guest appearance in this special.

Following the festive special, the second season is slated to kick off on Tuesday, January 2, 2024, airing on NBC and subsequently streaming on Peacock. The new season, spearheaded by executive producer and writer Dan Rubin, continues the legacy of the original series by focusing on Judge Abby Stone (portrayed by Melissa Rauch) overseeing Manhattan’s night shift arraignment court. Abby aims to instill order among a diverse crew, including the iconic Dan Fielding (played by John Larroquette), among others like Olivia, Neil, and Donna “Gurgs” Gurganous.


Expectations for Season 2 are high, promising a continuation of the humorous courtroom drama that made the show a classic. The season is reported to consist of at least 13 episodes, each with a runtime of approximately 21-23 minutes.

The show’s availability for streaming includes NBC’s platform and Peacock, with episodes available for viewing the day after airing. Additionally, viewers can access the series via various rental or purchase options on platforms like Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, Google Play, and iTunes, catering to diverse preferences and locations.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has also released “Night Court: The Complete First Season” in Region 1 on October 17, 2023, providing fans with an opportunity to relive or discover the initial season’s courtroom hilarity. As the anticipation builds for the second season, official episode synopses are expected to be released soon, adding to the excitement surrounding the show’s return.
