Jerry Springer’s “Judge Jerry” court show has been renewed for a second season in national syndication.
Springer’s tabloid talk show, “The Jerry Springer Show,” began airing in 1991 and ended in 2018. “Judge Jerry,” on which the real-life lawyer presides over a court room, has been renewed in 95% of leading station groups across the U.S., it was announced Wednesday by Tracie Wilson, executive vice president of creative affairs at NBCUniversal TV Distribution.
“We’re so pleased that our station partners have recognized the success of ‘Judge Jerry’ and have embraced this new side of him,” Wilson said. “Jerry and his staff have put their hearts and souls into this show and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to bring more compelling cases to our audience.”
“The opportunity to continue doing this program that I love is a godsend,” Springer said. “I will keep striving to be fair to the parties, as well as entertaining and interesting for the audience. But please know my career ambitions have their limits. I will not seek, nor will I accept, a nomination for the Supreme Court!”
“I’m thrilled to be working with Jerry for a second season of ‘Judge Jerry,'” executive producer Kerry Shannon said. “It’s exciting for viewers to watch Jerry’s career come full circle, and his compassion, fairness and relatability will continue to bring justice to the cases presented to him.”
The series is taped in front of a live studio audience at the Stamford Media Center in Connecticut, which is also the home to fellowNBCU talk shows “Maury” and “The Steve Wilkos Show.”
