At today’s Television Critics Association press tour, the Hallmark Movie Channel was expected to announce that there will be two more TV movies starring Luke Perry as Judge John Goodnight, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Western that introduced the character, "Goodnight for Justice," aired Jan. 29 and was the highest-rated Hallmark Movie Channel film ever.
In back-to-back productions, "Goodnight for Justice 2" will commence shooting in August and the third picture, "Goodnight for Justice 3," in September. The former is slated to air in early 2012.
The plot for the second film involves Goodnight’s encounter with the passengers of a stagecoach under attack, including a mysterious beauty who might, in fact, be a convicted criminal who was on her way to prison. Goodnight and the lady end up on a gambling riverboat, where her true identity is revealed.
