How to Watch the Original ‘Night Court’ & More Ahead of the Reboots
Several TV classics are getting the reboot treatment this season. A new rendition of the popular 1990s sci-fi drama Quantum Leap is coming to NBC this September, Starz is bringing Party Down back with its original cast and exciting new additions, and NBC is also rebooting the 1980s comedy Night Court.
Quantum Leap is so far the only TV reboot with an official premiere date (September 19). But while you wait for its return and news of Party Down and Night Court premieres, why not check out the original shows?
