After such a great response, fans can’t stop but wonder about the upcoming ‘All Rise’ Season 2 and its release date. Here’s everything we know so far.
How the star cast first broke the news of renewal?
We knew CBS has officially renewed the legal drama for Season 2 when the show’s leading lady, Simone Missick delivered the good news to her castmates through a video on Instagram.
“Thank you all for watching @allrisecbs, tweeting and posting, and being faithful supporters of this special show,” Missick wrote on below the aforementioned video. “God is so AWESOME! We have the best crew and cast, and most amazing and loyal fans. I can’t tell you how many of y’all reached out to say you were ready to storm the doors of CBS if we didn’t get a season 2. No need! Stay safely inside until we can all come back together again from our screens to yours!”
Jessica Camacho, who plays Emily Lopez, a public defender in the show also posted a video with the caption: “Love note to the All Rise fans: Thank you for showing up for us. Thank you for all your kind, supportive, loving comments, and for tuning in each time you do. So glad we get to keep making our show for YOU. Sending love to you all, wherever you are. Keep the faith, and keep showing up for each other. We got this. Go Good!!”
While, Lindsay Mendez, who plays Sara Castillo, also took to her Tweet and said, “YASSSS! See everyone this fall!!!!! Can’t wait to tell more stories with this amazing family!”
Seems like the cast of the series is just as excited about the renewal as the fans of ‘All Rise’.
When can we expect to watch All Rise season 2?
‘All Rise’ Season 1 was aired on September 23, 2019, on CBS. After spanning 21 episodes, it ended on May 4, 2020.
As of now, the makers of ‘All Rise’ haven’t announced a release date for the second season yet. But, keeping the global crisis in mind, our best bet is that ‘All Rise’ Season 2 will most likely release sometime in 2021.
Who can we expect to see as the cast of season 2?
The second edition of ‘All Rise’ will most likely show all its lead actors in their original roles.
The legal drama is led by Simone Missick as Judge Lola Carmichael, Wilson Bethel as Deputy District Attorney Mark Callan, Jessica Camacho as Emily Lopez, J. Alex Brinson as Deputy Sheriff Luke Watkins, Ruthie Ann Miles as Sherri Kansky, Lindsay Mendez as Sara Castillo, and Marg Helgenberger as Judge Lisa Benner.
Hence, Season 2 is expected to see all of the lead actors making their respective comebacks.
Here’s how All Rise’s team didn’t let coronavirus affect the shoot
‘All Rise’ became one of the first primetime scripted shows that made a landmark change in its filming schedule in order to combat the global lockdown enforced by the Covid-19 pandemic.
‘All Rise’ concluded with a virtually-produced episode inspired by social distancing and its impact on the criminal justice system. The final episode also shows how the characters’ personal lives were affected by the global crisis. Believe it or not, the entire episode was shot via FaceTime, WebEx, Zoom, and other social media and online tools.
Executive producer Greg Spottiswood also opened up about the unusual filming of the episode online. In an interview with a leading entertainment website, he stated:
“It’s a unique chance for our ‘All Rise’ family to band together – in our different homes, even cities – to tell a story about resilience, justice, and the power of community.”
Spotisswood also revealed that despite the crisis he was always hopeful that the show will come back for a second edition. He highlighted that season one’s finale proves that ‘All Rise’ has a team that can adapt to changes.
