Star Jones is next up to preside as judge over the long-running series, “Divorce Court.” 

The lawyer, journalist, and former co-host of “The View,” will pick up the gavel for season 24 this September. 

Star Jones took to Instagram to share the news of her joining “Divorce Court” along with the caption: 

Incredibly honored!

#HereComesTheJudge 👩🏽‍⚖️⚖️

See her original post below. 

Judge Faith Jenkins, who succeeded Lynn Toler in 2020, will continue as judge through the end of Season 23. 

Faith had pretty big shoes to fill coming in after Judge Toler and I think viewers never really connected with her or gave her a fair chance.

It will be interesting to see how Judge Jones is received.
