"Night Court" is about to come to order again.

John Larroquette, 73, will reprise his role as prosecutor Dan Fielding in a reboot of the NBC series that ran from 1984 to 1992, reports Deadline.com. The actor, who won four Emmy Awards as Fielding, will also serve as a producer on the new series, which is being developed by NBC. Melissa Rauch ("The Big Bang Theory") is the executive producer.

The update will center on Abby Stone, daughter of Harry Stone, the unorthodox judge with a penchant for magic and Mel Tormé played by Harry Anderson, who died in 2018. Like her father, she is also a judge at a Manhattan night court who presides over some unusual cases.
