[ # ] ABC is working on LA Law sequel with Blair Underwood
December 17th, 2020 under ABC

On Tuesday, Fox announced that they were rebooting Fantasy Island. Yesterday. NBC revealed that they are working on a sequel for Night Court with John Larroquette. Today, there is a report that ABC is looking to do a sequel of LA Law with Blair Underwood.

Back when the show originally ran, his character, Jonathan Rollins, was constantly screwed over by the firm’s partners. Now, he is the one running the firm. According to Deadline, the sequel will be about, “The venerable law firm of McKenzie Brackman reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high-profile, boundary-pushing and incendiary cases. Underwood reprises his role as Rollins, who has gone from idealistic to more conservative as he clashes with millennial JJ Freeman to decide the best path forward for the firm to effect political and legal change.”

While the show will focus on the younger lawyers, the site says we should expect to see some familiar faces on LA Law 2.0. We don’t know who, but I am sure Harry Hamlin already left Underwood, who is also a producer, several phone calls.

Would you watch it? Back in August, I binged the series in order to prep for jury duty. While I did not learn any creative ways on how to get out of serving. I did learn that the show was really good. However, the episodes were better when they were produced by David E. Kelley. Therefore, they need to bring someone who worked with Kelley to work on the sequel. He knows how to mix law storyline with madness and make them seem like they are not crazy.

You binged? How did you get it? I’d love to watch the show again but I can’t ever find it!
