So yes it’s official!! Judy Justice is being renewed for its second season by Amazon’s IMDb TV, hence Judge Judy is yet not done granting justice, as the ex-Manhattan judge expressed her emotions “I am over the moon and couldn’t be happier with the Judy Justice reception in streaming.” “Amazon has been a terrific partner and I look forward to our continued collaboration.”
Let’s Dig Deeper into Judy Justice
Judy Justice is a series that is more or less similar to Sheindlin’s CBS show known by Judge Judy which was released in 2021 and gathered a lot of praise and success which lead to the next season being be produced later in 2022.
Judy Justice ranked as one of the top original programs on IMDb TV achieving a record viewership of twenty-five million streaming hours.
Similar to the original Judge Judy, the second season Judy Justice will feature adjudication of lawsuits chaired by Sheindlin who is a retired judge of Manhattan family court. Kevin Raco, who is a probation officer from Los Angeles also stars as the bailiff in the show. The difference between Judge Judy and Judy Justice was brought about by casting Stenographer Whitney Kumar and law clerk Sarah Rose, who is not only Sheindlin’s granddaughter but also a law student, in the second season.
We can also see some additions to the list of producers which now include Amy Freisleben and Scott Koondel.
How did Judy Justice Gain Attention even before it Premiered?
The show gathered fans’ attention even before it got premiered because of the missing cast members. Petri Hawkins Byrd who played as the Judge Judy bailiff was not onboard in the show. Byrd even stated that he wasn’t even approached by Sheindlin, later it was brought to notice that he is too expensive was the reason for him being missed from the casting list.
But we can sense some resentment when Byrd talked in an interview and said that “My salary would have been too much. I was curious: How would she know? She didn’t ask me she didn’t give me an opportunity to have accepted a lower salary.”
What does the Team at IMDb TV have to Say?
Ryan Pirozzi and Lauren Anderson who co-headed the programming and content at IMDB TV stated the reasons for the renewing Judy Justice:
“With Judy Justice, we saw a bold opportunity to reinforce our vision of a modern television network, by embracing daytime television programming and uniquely offering IMDb TV customers new episodes every weekday. For more than 25 years, Judge Sheindlin has been a staple of daytime TV. Through her no-nonsense approach to adjudicating real cases, Judge Sheindlin has educated millions about the legal process and real-life decision-making. We look forward to delivering another season of binge-worthy justice as Judge Judy Sheindlin continues her unprecedented reign as one of the most iconic and esteemed personalities in entertainment.”
“We had a nice marriage,” Sheindlin stated “It’s going to be a Bill and Melinda Gates divorce.” when it was announced that the famous court program Judge Judy will come to an end after its 25th season and her agreement with CBS TV distribution was terminated.
This was followed by Amazon knocking on her doors and what else we know is history!!!
