The 1980’s sitcom, “Night Court”, is on its way back to television according to a report by Variety.

The sequel follows the late Harold T. Stone’s daughter, Abby Stone, who will further her father’s legacy as presiding judge of a night court. Melissa Rauch will be the executive producer. John Larroquette, who played sex-addicted prosecutor Fielding during the show’s nine-season run, will return to reprise his role.

Harry Anderson portrayed Judge Stone from 1984 until the show’s completion in 1992. Anderson died in 2018 from a stroke due to influenza and heart disease at the age of 65.

No word as yet if any of the other surviving cast members from the original series, including Markie Post, Charles Robinson, Marsha Warfield, and Richard Moll, will appear in any capacity.
