OWN Revives 'All Rise' for Season 3

After being cancelled by CBS earlier this year, OWN has today closed a deal for a 20-episode third season of the original drama series All Rise. The drama will return with new episodes in 2022.

The options on the actors had expired in June following the drama's cancellation by CBS in May. As such, new deals had to be made for each actor to return. Simone Missick, Wilson Bethel, Jessica Camacho, J. Alex Brinson, Ruthie Anne Miles, Lindsay Mendez and Lindsay Gort are set to return. Marg Helgenberger will not return as a series regular, though the option remains for her to return as a recurring guest star.

Dee Harris-Lawrence will return as showrunner for the third season. She executive produces with Missick, Len Goldstein and Michael Robin. Warner Bros. Television produces.

The streaming rights for the new season will be shared by HBO Max and Hulu.

"All Rise has been a great performer, achieving strong ratings and growing its share from season one to two," said Tina Perry, President, OWN. "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."
