Amazon Freevee announced Monday it is renewing the Daytime Emmy award-winning series Judy Justice for another two seasons. Freevee also gave the green light to a brand new courtroom docudrama series created and featuring Judy Sheindlin, Justice on Trial. Along with Tribunal Justice, the trifecta will comprise the new Justice brand set to premiere on June 9th, 2023.
Judge Sheindlin shared her excitement over the renewal.
“How shall I describe my feelings about the renewal of Judy Justice on Amazon Freevee? Gratifying, certainly. Grateful, of course. In exploring the continued success of the program, I do believe that people long to see old-fashion justice administered with an even hand. A little humor doesn’t hurt. I intend to deliver both for as long as I’m able.”
Judy Justice has amassed a mighty following, quickly becoming Freevee’s most-watched original program clocking in at over 150 million hours since premiering in November of 2021. The first season won the Daytime Emmy Award for Legal/Courtroom Program and the second season was recently nominated for it again this year.
Judge Judy Sheindlin says, “Justice on Trial explores, through reenactment, some of the most famous and infamous cases in this country and their impact on every American. There has never been a program like it. It is smart and compelling TV.
Justice on Trial promises to be a “totally new exploration of the American justice system” docudrama covering topics such as “what children are taught in school, police diligence as opposed to overreach, and individual rights versus the greater good” through courtroom debate, lively civil discourse, and common-sense analysis.
“Over the course of two seasons on Amazon Freevee, Judge Sheindlin has delighted her long-standing fans and won over a new streaming audience with her no-nonsense approach to resolving every dispute on Judy Justice. With Justice on Trial, we look forward to offering our audience new opportunities to learn more about the legal process and the laws that govern our lives, as Judge Sheindlin goes beyond the bench to educate us all on landmark cases that have shifted our world,” says Head of AVOD Originals Lauren Anderson.
Amazon Freevee is an ad-supported streaming service providing thousands of premium movies and TV series as well as original programming. New episodes of Judy Justice run every weekday and are also available on demand.
