Matlock (2023) – When is the CBS Reboot Happening?


Reboots are nothing too foreign. Several popular shows, series, and movies have had their reboots done with a refreshed plot to bring a new perspective to the audience. The same is the case with the famous legal drama Matlock. 

This updated take on the show promises to retain the charm and wit of the original while incorporating modern themes and sensibilities. So, if you have watched the OG version and wanted to catch up with the reboot as well, you have come to the right place.

In this guide, we will walk you through all the details that you need to know about Matlock (2023) and its eventual release.

When is Matlock (2023) Releasing?

Well, CBS is the one that announced that they are bringing back Matlock in a refreshed format. However, the initial reports depicted that the show would be released in 2023 but looks like things will be changing after all.

CBS has recently confirmed that they will be pushing the release date of Matlock’s reboot to 2024 or 2025. Nothing has been set in stone yet, so it is a matter of when at this point.

The good news is that everything has been confirmed, so you can be assured that Matlock is most likely happening in the future. CBS has only yet to give us a confirmation about the date as to when it will happen. That’s what we’d have to look forward to.

What can we expect from Matlock (2023)?

The new “Matlock” follows Madeline Matlock, a septuagenarian lawyer who returns to the workforce after years of retirement. Drawing on her vast experience and sharp intellect, Madeline joins a prestigious law firm and quickly establishes herself as a force to be reckoned with. However, this isn’t simply a rehash of the old show. 

The 2023 (rather the 2024-25) version promises to be more nuanced and complex, tackling contemporary legal issues and exploring the challenges faced by older professionals in today’s society. 

We can expect captivating courtroom dramas, intricate legal battles, and insightful commentary on social issues. The show will also retain the signature humor and charm that made the original “Matlock” such a success.

There are a lot of ways the plot can go. While CBS hasn’t confirmed anything about the plot yet, it looks like we can expect a tinge of what the original show was all about.

Who is returning to Matlock 2023?

If you are expecting anyone from the original series to return, that does seem like a stretch. However, the confirmed cast for the show includes:

  • Kathy Bates as Madeline Matlock
  • Skye P. Marshall as Madeline’s ambitious young associate
  • Leah Lewis as Madeline’s tech-savvy intern

Besides that, we don’t know the other cast members that will appear on the show. We’d have to look forward to that.


The return of “Matlock” is sure to be a momentous event for fans of the classic show and legal dramas in general. With a talented cast, a compelling storyline, and a modern twist on a beloved formula, the 2023 iteration of “Matlock” promises to be must-watch television. Are you waiting for its return?
