Fans of NBC’s Night Court will be seeing a lot more of Nyambi Nyambi (The Good Fight, Mike & Molly), who has been upped to a series regular starting February 6, Deadline has confirmed. The news arrives after he appeared in the hit reboot as a guest star in last week’s episode.
Nyambi portrays Wyatt Shaw, the court’s new quick-witted and sarcastic clerk who has seen it all. As a recently divorced, overprotective father of two young girls, he’s determined to make sure his daughters see way less than he did.
