By Movieguide® Staff
Judge Judy Sheindlin is partnering with her granddaughter for a return to courtroom television on Nov. 1.
The courtroom icon, known for the long-running series, JUDGE JUDY, announced that the premiere of her new show, JUDY JUSTICE, would be available on weekdays through IMDb TV, a free streaming service from Amazon.
“New look. New home. The same Judge Judith Sheindlin. #JudyJustice is coming exclusively to @IMDbTV on weekdays beginning November 1,” an official Tweet read.

Fox News reported:
Sheindlin, 78, moved to the new show when her syndication deal with CBS Media Ventures ended with some acrimony after 25 years. For more than a decade, “Judge Judy” has been syndication’s most popular show with the tart-talking New Yorker arbitrating small claims cases.
CBS promptly cut a deal to keep “Judge Judy” reruns on the air.
Sheindlin will be joined on “Judy Justice” by a new television bailiff and stenographer. Sarah Rose, a law clerk and Sheindlin’s granddaughter, will be a legal analyst.
“She’s smart, sassy and opinionated,” Sheindlin said of her granddaughter. “Who knows where she gets those traits?”
After 25 years, JUDGE JUDY came to an end after CBS bought the rights to rerun old episodes from Sheindlin.
Randy Douthit and Amy Freisleben will return to produce Sheindlin’s new show.
“If you were to say to most viewers that these are not new shows, they would say, ‘Oh, really?'” Bill Carroll, a veteran analyst of the syndication market, said. “For them[IMDbTV], it can’t be anything but good. For her, it allows her to do what she loves to do.”
