This is a movie franchise that is certainly working for Hallmark, as the first one was the most watched ever premiere for an original movie in the cabler history, and now it is bringing a second sequel.
Luke Perry returns to deal justice in the untamed west in the World Premiere of “Goodnight for Justice: Queen of Hearts,” a Hallmark Movie Channel Original Saturday, January 26 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). Ricky Schroder (“NYPD Blue”) and Katharine Isabelle (“Endgame”) co-star with Perry who reprises his role as circuit judge John Goodnight, an honorable man on a mission to dispense justice, one town at a time. This is the third installment of Hallmark Movie Channel’s highest-rated film ever “Goodnight for Justice.” John Goodnight is based on a character by Luke Perry who also serves as executive producer.
The sequel rejoins circuit Judge John Goodnight (Perry) as he travels the Western territory in the 1880s, attempting to leave a trail of justice in his wake. Between dealing with difficult defendants and dealing cards at saloons, John crosses paths with a stagecoach under attack. Drawing his gun, he comes to the rescue of the only surviving passenger, a beautiful woman named Lucy Thoreau (Isabelle), who John doesn’t realize is actually a convicted con artist on the run. Little does she know, John is an honest judge, and as they start to fall for each other on their wild journey, the secrets between them are slowly revealed. Running from Cyril Knox (Schroder), the wealthy aristocrat who wants her jailed, Lucy must convince John to help her flee—right onto a gambling riverboat. Can Lucy con John into helping her get away with her crimes, or will the fair judge find out her true identity and turn her in himself?
