After being cancelled, All Rise could pull a Manifest and plot a possible comeback. OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network is in talks for a new season of the legal drama starring Simone Missick, according to “Deadline.”
The talks between OWN and the show’s lead studio, Warner Bros. TV, come three months after CBS cancelled the show in May. While the talks are progressing, it should be noted that the negotiations are still very complex and have not reached the final stages. The All Rise cast’s options ran out at the end of June. Warner Bros. TV has begun negotiations with lead actress Missick and has also approached other cast members Wilson Bethel, Jessica Camacho, and J. Alex Brinson in anticipation of a possible pickup, which could be for as many as 20 episodes.
The cancellation of All Rise at CBS was due to behind-the-scenes issues on the show, which culminated in the departure of creator and showrunner Greg Spottiswood in March over allegations of sexual misconduct. Dee Harris-Lawrence, who took over as showrunner for season two, would almost certainly return to the show, along with fellow executive producers Len Goldstein and Michael Robin.
On All Rise, we follow the lives of the city’s judges, prosecutors, and public defenders as they work with bailiffs, clerks, and cops to bring justice to the people of Los Angeles in the midst of a broken legal system. It revolves around Judge Lola Carmichael (Missick), a highly regarded and impressive deputy district attorney who, in her new role, does not intend to sit back and relax, but instead leans in, pushing the boundaries and challenging expectations of what a judge can be.
Are YOU happy about a possible All Rise return?
