*The second season of “Judge Steve Harvey” will debut on May 9 featuring comedian Steve Harvey playing by “his own rules”.”
Harvey previously said his dream job has been to serve as a judge on a courtroom TV show. “Judge Steve Harvey” premiered on ABC in January 2022, and was renewed last year.
Per ABC’s synopsis of Season 1, the “10-episode courtroom comedy series will feature real cases, with Harvey welcoming a variety of conflicts and characters to his courtroom – from small claims to big disputes and everything in between. Steve plays by his own rules, basing his courtroom on his own life experiences and some good old common sense.”
“I came up with this idea 12 years ago and I just never told anybody,” Harvey told reporters at the Television Critics Association virtual winter press tour last year. “I’ve never sat in a pitch room about it. I never met with a network about it. I never discussed it with my team, my production company, nothing. I just had this idea.”

During the initial discussions with the network about the courtroom show, Harvey said he made clear that he “wanted it to be funny. I wanted to be insightful.”

“I wanted it to not be about the verdict, but about the story — and the next day, they greenlit it,” he added.
“Judge Steve Harvey” is produced by Den of Thieves in association with Walt Disney Television’s newly formed alternative unit. Steve Harvey, Brandon Williams, and Den of Thieves’ Jesse Ignjatovic, Evan Prager, Jared Morrell and Barb Bialkowski serve as executive producers.
