NBC has revived the popular 80s sitcom Night Court, which premiered January 17. The new series follows the life of the late Judge Harry Stone’s daughter, Abby Stone, who has now taken over her father’s bench at the Manhattan Municipal Court.

”Rather than a reboot of the original, the new Night Court will be a continuation of the original story, this time starring Judge Harry Stone’s daughter, Abby Stone (Melissa Rauch), taking the reins as Judge in the courtroom. Episodes will follow a similar formula to the original Night Court as Abby and her courtroom staff tackle the day’s most complicated and kooky cases that make their way to the night shift,” according to NBC.
