Good news for fans of legal drama All Rise, the Oprah Winfrey Network has ordered a 20-episode third season, rescuing it from CBS who cancelled it earlier this year.

Both leading actress Simone Missick and showrunner Dee Harris-Lawrence will be returning, Variety has reported.

The channel will air the first two seasons ahead of the third airing, while HBO Max and Hulu will also stream the first two seasons from December 1.

The publication quotes OWN president Tina Perry as stating: "All Rise has been a great performer, achieving strong ratings and growing its share from season one to two. Featuring a strong character front and center, Judge Lola Carmichael's story reflects our audience with powerful affirmation.

"A special thanks to Warner Bros Television and our incredible showrunner and longtime partner Dee Harris-Lawrence. We can't wait to get started on season three and bring this show back for long-standing and new fans alike."

In a more punny statement, Warner Bros Television's president, Brett Paul, said with a nod to the show: "We are incredibly thrilled that All Rise will be back in court, and we are so thankful to our great partners at OWN for ruling in favour of another season of this powerful drama."

All Rise unites Simone Missick with another Marvel Netflix Universe star Wilson Bethel. Missick played Detective Misty Knight across Luke Cage, The Defenders and Iron Fist, while Bethel played Agent Benjamin 'Dex' Poindexter in Daredevil.

Maybe the fact the All Rise has been brought back from the dead will convince someone in the UK to pick it up for release. As Oprah herself would say, 'who is having that conversation?'
