Knight Rider is a series that follows the 1982 TV series of the same title and the 2008 television movie. The series stars Justin Bruening as Mike Traceur, the estranged son of Michael Knight. The series also stars Deanna Russo as Sarah Graiman, Traceur's former girlfriend/current love interest. Sarah is daughter of Charles Graiman, played by Bruce Davison, the creator of a new generation of KITT (Knight Industries Three Thousand), voiced by Val Kilmer.

In advance of its anticipated weekly run, the new Knight Rider series was introduced with a television movie on February 17, 2008. The new series premiered on NBC on September 24, 2008 and leads the network's Wednesday evening lineup, along with Deal or No Deal and Lipstick Jungle.[1] During the fall season there will be encore showings on Saturday evenings. On October 21, 2008, NBC gave the show a full season order of 22 episodes.[2] All of the episodes that aired on TV, are also available in the Xbox Live Marketplace.[3] The episodes are available in HD format and SD format.[3]

On November 10, 2008 it was announced that NBC was reformatting the show in an effort to more closely resemble the storyline of its predecessor. Yancey Arias, Bruce Davison, and Sydney Tamiia Poitier's characters are being removed from the series starting with a two part episode scheduled to air in January 2009. The show will continue with a more character driven focus on Michael and KITT.[4]

On December 3, 2008, it was announced that NBC was reducing its season order to 17 episodes. The five remaining scripts will be utilized if the show is renewed for a second season. The season finale is scheduled to air on February 25, 2009.


The story takes place 25 years after the original Knight Rider series. Mike Traceur, son of the first Michael Knight, has become the driver of the next generation KITT (Knight Industries Three Thousand). Along with a former girlfriend Sarah Graiman, who is the daughter of the scientist Charles Graiman who designed both the original KITT and the new one, Mike is the new champion of Knight Industries, a high tech government and law enforcement contractor. Mike is also dealing with the fact that he was apparently involved in a secret government mission some years ago of which he has no memory.
