After announcing the concept in December of last year and greenlighting a pilot back in May, NBC has officially ordered the Night Court sequel.

The upcoming half-hour series will act as a follow-up to the classic comedy series Night Court which ran from 1984 to 1992. Starring the late Harry Anderson as Judge Harry Stone and John Larroquette, who will be reprising his award-winning role in the new series, as Dan Fielding, the original series followed the goings-on of a night shift at a Manhattan arraignment court. The new show is set to pick up years later as Harry’s daughter Abby (Melissa Rauch) follows in his footsteps in the courtroom and tries to bring order to the courtroom’s collection of oddballs and cynics.

There is no word yet on when the half-hour multi-camera show will air. However, NBC has been steadily announcing cast members for the show including Kapil Talwalker, Lacretta, and Ana Villafañe.
