'Divorce Court' Renewed Through 2019
Divorce Court is still in session.
The daytime legal entry has been renewed through 2019, Fox Television Stations announced Tuesday.
The renewal cements Divorce Court's record as TV's longest-running court show. The series originally premiered in 1957 and ran through 1969. Its second run lasted from 1985 to 1992, before returning in 1999 with host Lynn Toler. Since its original inception, actors have been replaced by the real people involved in the real cases at hand.
“Divorce Court is one of the most recognizable titles in the court genre, and Lynn Toler is one of that genre’s most trusted judges," Stephen Brown, Fox Television Stations' executive vp programming and development, said in a statement. "The cases and drama are real — it’s loud, funny and many times, powerful.”
Divorce Court is produced by Lincolnwood Productions and distributed by Twentieth Television.
