TV Q&A: Has the NBC series already reached its “endgame”? | Television

Q • There was a show called “The Endgame” on NBC last year. The ending left me wanting more. Will he be back? I hope.

A • Sorry to dash your hopes, but NBC has decided not to continue the series with Ryan Michelle Bathe and Morena Baccarin. The ratings were disappointing for the network. While its fans have been calling for a second season, so far I haven’t seen any indication that it will happen.

Q • Is Paddy Considine from “House of the Dragon” a member of the talented Considine family along with Tim from “My Three Sons” and Disney movies, and John from the soap opera “Another World”?

A • No. Considine, part of the ‘Game of Thrones’ prequel ‘House of the Dragon’, was born in England and began his acting career overseas. I couldn’t find any links to the people you mentioned.

Tim Considine, who died in March, was born in California and after acting became known as “a sports and automotive photographer, writer and author”, noted The New York Times. He was the younger brother of John Considine, known not only for “Another World”, but also for many other screen roles. And there were other famous family ties. For one thing, journalist Bob Considine was Tim and John’s uncle.

Q • I’m a big fan of “In the Dark” on the CW. The writing and acting are brilliant. Please tell me he’s coming back for more seasons.

A • Again, I have to disappoint. The current fourth season of the series will be the last. Starring Perry Mattfeld as a complicated blind woman, the show is set to have its finale on September 5. Series creator Corinne Kingsbury said TVLine.com that “we hadn’t been supported while we were writing the season ending, and we knew we might not get a season 5, so we wrote and shot two endings – one with a cliffhanger, and one that brings our series to a satisfying conclusion.

Q • I looked on the Internet for what appears to be excerpts from a sequel to “Call Me by Your Name”. Was a sequel really filmed?

A • No. Fan-made trailers for movies they’d like to see are pretty common, and that might be what you’ve seen. There has been talk of making a sequel to the award-winning film starring Timothée Chalamet. But last year, in a conversation with Deadline.com“Call Me” director “Luca Guadagnino” made it dubious. The set got complicated. Chalamet will be busy making blockbusters like the “Dune” sequels and playing young Willy Wonka, and -star Armie Hammer has been pulled from numerous projects due to disturbing off-camera allegations. But the fact is that Guadagnino himself is busy advancing his own films. The director reunited with Chalamet and the “Call Me” Michael Stuhlbarg for “Bones and All,” a movie coming later this year.

Q • When my sister and I were around 6 or 7 years old, we watched a show called “Sky King”. I was wondering if there were any reruns.

A • Kirby Grant was Schuyler “Sky” King, a rancher who, with his aircraft, the Songbird, fought off the bad guys; he had help from his niece Penny (Gloria Winters), nephew Clipper (Ron Hagerthy) and others. First on radio with a different cast, the TV show aired on NBC, ABC and CBS in the 1950s and 1960s. Reruns can be found on streaming services FMC (or Free Movie Classics) and Tubi , as well as on YouTube. There have also been DVD releases, notably via skyking.com.
