What is ‘Judy Justice’ about? Is it the same as ‘Judge Judy’?

Judy Justice is an arbitration-based reality court show like its original Judge Judy, featuring Judy Sheindlin as the judge. The spinoff boasts a new refreshed look to the 25-year series. From the Judy Justice trailer, viewers see that Sheindlin has a new maroon robe missing the traditional lace she previously wore. The courtroom has a fresh modern feel, and Sheindlin explains there’s a new team to support her.

Judy Justice is a really exciting new adventure that gives me an opportunity to come into streaming while producing a whole different kind of court show,” Sheindlin explains in the trailer. “I’ve been sort of alone for the last 25 years. Now I have a new team.”

According to the Amazon Studios press release, the litigation goes up to $10,000 from a previous cap of $5,000. Plus, Sheindlin’s granddaughter, Sarah Rose, sits to one side, advising Sheindlin as the law clerk. Meanwhile, she also added Whitney Kumar as the courtroom stenographer. Sheindlin’s Judy Justice follows the same format as her original show with a bit of new flair.

Where to watch ‘Judy Justice’ episodes

Although it might be confusing at first to track down the new Judge Judy Sheindlin TV show, Judy Justice, it’s pretty easy to stream new episodes.

When do new ‘Judy Justice’ episodes air?

Judge Judy Sheindlin returns to the courtroom in Judy Justice on Nov. 1, 2021. New episodes of the Amazon Prime IMDb TV series drop every weekday, similar to the CBS Judge Judy TV show. However, for the initial run, four episodes of Judy Justice are available for streaming as of Nov. 1. CBS also airs four episodes of Judge Judy back-to-back in the 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily time slot. The new series’ main competition is the reruns of Sheindlin’s former show, Judge Judy.

Who is in the new cast?

Judge Judy Sheindlin’s new cast for Judy Justice brings in her granddaughter, Sarah Rose. She previously worked as a production assistant for Judge Judy. Sara takes on a new role as the legal analyst supporting Judge Sheindlin. A former board-certified court reporter, Whitney Kumar, joins the Judy Justice cast as the courtroom stenographer.

One of the significant changes within Judge Judy’s new TV series is the new bailiff, Kevin Rasco. He is a former Los Angeles probationary officer and was head of the behind-the-scenes security at Judge Judy in the last three seasons of the CBS show. However, many viewers might be shocked not to see bailiff Petri Hawkins Byrd alongside Judge Judy Sheindlin.

What happened to Byrd on ‘Judge Judy’?

According to Entertainment Weekly, Byrd found out about the new series the same way everyone else did. Judge Judy Sheindlin announced her plan during an episode of The Ellen Degeneres Show in March 2020. When Byrd confronted Judge Judy Sheindlin about the new show, he was shocked at her response.

“She informed me I was not being asked to come along on the project,” Byrd told Entertainment Weekly. “I didn’t inquire as to why; that’s her choice. But she did inform me that fundamentally, I was priced out as the new bailiff on her new show. My salary would have been too much. I was curious: How would she know? She didn’t ask me. She didn’t give me an opportunity to have accepted a lower salary.” 

Randy Douthit and Amy Freisleben continue to executive produce the new series, Judy Justice, on IMDb TV.
