de Beaufort broke the news herself in an Instagram post earlier this month, the same day Night Court was renewed for a third season at NBC: “For the last two years, I have had the immense privilege of driving onto the WB lot and walking onto a stage filled with the most hard working, loving and talented cast and crew that comedy has to offer. Today they received a [Season 3] pick up. Knowing and loving them as I do, I am beyond overjoyed for the most deserving people I know. I will miss the honor of being in their brilliant company, but my god. That was fun. My time at Night Court has come to an end.”

She added: “I owe a great thanks to NBC, WB, After January Productions and our Writers / Producers / Directors / Cast and Crew for two incredible years. My favorite thing about this business is how often old friends appear in new places; that’ll be a day I look forward to greatly.”

de Beaufort co-starred as Olivia Moore, the tightly wound prosecuting attorney who reluctantly struck up a friendship with Melissa Rauch’s Judge Abby Stone and with bailiff Gurgs, played by Lacretta. The cast also includes John Larroquette, reprising his role as Dan Fielding from Night Court’s original NBC run.

This marks the second original cast member to leave Night Court: Kapil Talwalkar exited the series ahead of its second season as court clerk Neil, with Nyambi Nyambi joining the Season 2 cast as new court clerk Wyatt.
