Television staple Judy Sheindlin, known as the host of the iconic TV courtroom ‘Judge Judy,’ is making a return. IMDbTV announced that Sheindlin would be returning to the gavel with the new streaming series ‘Judy Justice.’ Set to premiere in November 2021, the show partners her honor with a new staff in the arbitration-based program.
Sheindlin said in a statement.”I am probably the luckiest on-air personality in the history of television to have had Randy Douthit and Amy Freisleben shepherd my program for over two decades. They continuously make me look good. With Judy Justice on IMDb TV, the magic continues.” She continued, “Our bailiff Kevin has been in charge of my security for the last three years. He comes from law enforcement, has a winning smile, a delightful personality, and is always professional. Whitney was a truly lucky find. A skilled court stenographer for 15 years, she brings warmth, great proficiency, and best of all, can refresh my memory in a heartbeat with her machine. I’ve known Sarah, our law clerk, since she was born. She will be a third-generation female lawyer in our family. She’s smart, sassy, and opinionated. Who knows where she gets those traits?”
IMDbTV released a teaser showing Judge Judy Sheindlin and her new courtroom team:

Series executive producer and director Randy Douthit said, “Judy is a force of nature with a sense of humor. She has an unwavering commitment to justice, a deep understanding of human nature, and a very big heart. She inspires me and makes everyone around her want to do better.”
Co-executive producer Amy Freisleben added, “I was thrilled and humbled when Judy asked me to join her in this new journey as part of Judy Justice, this exciting new program for IMDb TV and Amazon Studios. Our staff has worked tirelessly to create what we know will be the next generation of courtroom television that will appeal to both Judy’s existing fans, as well as to streaming viewers.”
