Legal drama “All Rise” from Warner Bros. TV, which for two seasons on CBS (from 2019-21) has been brought back to life after being canceled with a third season pickup by Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). The cable net has ordered 20 new episodes for 2022, with HBO Max and Hulu sharing the streaming rights. The show will debut with episodes from its first two seasons on December 1.

Series lead Simone Missick is returning as Judge Lola Carmichael and will also serve as an executive producer on the new season. Dee Harris-Lawrence will be back as showrunner and executive producer. The other confirmed returning cast members include Wilson Bethel as Lola’s best friend, Deputy District Attorney Mark Callan; Jessica Camacho as public defender Emily Lopez; J. Alex Brinson as bailiff-turned-lawyer Luke Watkins; Ruthie Ann Miles as Lola’s assistant Sherri Kansky; Lindsay Mendez as court reporter Sara Castillo; and Lindsey Gort as defense attorney Amy Quinn.

“’All Rise’ has been a great performer, achieving strong ratings and growing its share from season one to two,” said Tina Perry, president of OWN. “Featuring a strong character front and center, Judge Lola Carmichael’s story reflects our audience with powerful affirmation. A special thanks to Warner Bros. Television and our incredible showrunner and longtime partner Dee Harris-Lawrence. We can’t wait to get started on season three and bring this show back for long-standing and new fans alike.”
