We’re in the final week of the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial, with closing arguments scheduled for Friday, May 27, before the jury head out for deliberations — which could take anywhere from a few minutes, to a few hours, to a few weeks. Here’s the all-important Johnny Depp trial time for today, as well as information on how to tune in to the trial stream, so you can watch the final questioning live.
What Time Is the Johnny Depp Trial Today?
Johnny Depp’s defamation case against former wife Amber Heard will resume in the Fairfax, Virgina, at 9 AM ET. The case is being broadcast to the world, and can be watched online and on certain news stations. We’ll include the stream below — when it’s available — so you can watch the action unfold, as Depp could be called as a witness to by Heard’s team, six weeks after he first took the stand in this case.
Court will be in session from 9 AM ET and will conclude around 5:30 PM ET, a half-hour extension on the 5 PM ET finish we saw up until this week to ensure closing arguments happen on May 27. We’ll see three breaks throughout the day: 15 minutes in the morning and afternoon, and an hour for lunch Occasionally, the trial will run a little longer to complete a line of questioning or to make up for a shift in scheduling.
Watch the Johnny Depp Trial Stream
Today’s Johnny Depp trial stream isn’t live yet.

In the meantime, you can catch up on what happened yesterday below. You’ll need to skip through fast though — we only have a couple of hours until the trial resumes!
