Court will soon be dismissed for All Rise.

The legal drama will end after the final 10 episodes of the current third season begin airing Sept. 16 on OWN, the cable network said in a press release Tuesday.

“We are extremely proud of the positive impact All Rise has made in showcasing strong, accomplished Black female characters,” OWN President Tina Perry said in a statement. “We are so grateful to all of our creative collaborators and wish to thank the talented cast and crew for their dedication and incredible work on the series.”

All Rise focuses on public defenders, judges and prosecutors as they fight for justice for the people of Los Angeles.

Simone Missick serves as an executive producer and leads the cast as “Judge Lola Carmichael.”

The ensemble cast also includes Wilson Bethel as Judge Carmichael’s best friend Deputy District Attorney “Mark Callan.” Jessica Camacho plays public defender “Emily Lope,” J. Alex Brinson is bailiff-turned-public defender “Luke Watkins,” Ruthie Ann Miles plays Lola’s judicial assistant “Sherri Kansky,” Lindsay Mendez is victim advocate “Sara Castillo,” Lindsey Gort portrays defense attorney “Amy Quinn,” and Marg Helgenberger plays “Judge Lisa Benner.”

Recurring actors are Samantha Marie Ware, Paul McCrane, Suzanne Cryer, Roger Guenveur Smith, Christian Keyes, and Ian Anthony Dale.

The series originally aired on CBS from September 2019 to May 2021, before it was canceled after two seasons.

In September 2021, OWN made a splashy announcement saying it was resurrecting the critically acclaimed drama for a third season consisting of 20 episodes. At the time, the network lauded the show’s “strong ratings” and said it brought “powerful affirmation” to OWN’s core Black female audience.

The first half of season 3 aired in 2022. The second half picks up immediately after the events of a dangerous smash-and-grab case, which left the courthouse in chaos and many lives in the balance.
