Q: Can you tell me what Nathan Fil­lion has been up to lately? I re­ally liked his re­cur­ring role on “Mod­ern Fam­ily” last sea­son and was sad to see him go. I need him on my TV screen again! -- Ginger F., via Face­book

A: You’ll get to see the ruggedly hand­some face of the for­mer “Cas­tle” star soon in ABC’s “The Rookie,” which Nathan will star in and ex­ec­u­tive-pro­duce. The show has been given a straight to-se­ries or­der from the net­work, its premise be­ing, as out­lined in “En­ter­tain­ment Weekly”: “Nathan Fil­lion stars as John Nolan, a rookie cop in the LAPD who is 20 years older than most of his fel­low rook­ies. Nolan ditched his small-town life and ca­reer to move to L.A. to pur­sue his dream of be­com­ing a cop, but now he finds him­self nav­i­gat­ing the un­pre­dictable, dan­ger­ous and oc­ca­sion­ally hu­mor­ous world of a ‘young cop.’”

*** Q: I be­came hooked on this Net­flix se­ries called “Glitch.” Can you tell me if and when it’ll be back for an­other sea­son? -- Nina H., via email

A: Sea­son two of the para­nor­mal drama, which con­sists of six brand-new episodes, will drop Nov. 28. The show orig­i­nally airs in Aus­tralia, but Net­flix co­pro­duces the se­ries and airs it on the stream­ing site a few weeks af­ter its Aus­tralian pre­miere. The se­ries cen­ters on the strange go­ings-on in Yoorana, Vic­to­ria, Aus­tralia, where James Hayes (played by Pa­trick Bram­mall) is a small-town po­lice­man.

Hayes is called to the lo­cal ceme­tery in the mid­dle of the night af­ter seven peo­ple have in­ex­pli­ca­bly risen from the dead in per­fect health. With no mem­ory of their iden­ti­ties, they are de­ter­mined to dis­cover who they are and what has hap­pened to them. Along with lo­cal doc­tor Elishia McKel­lar (Genevieve O’Reilly), James strug­gles to keep the case hid­den from his col­leagues, his fam­ily and the world. The seven peo­ple are all linked in some way, and the search be­gins for some­one who knows the truth about how and why they have re­turned.”

Q: I heard that Amy Sher­man-Pal­ladino has a new show out. Where and when can I see it? -- Kelli D., via email A: The tal­ented cre­ator of “The Gil­more Girls” has a new se­ries called “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” which pre­mieres Nov. 29 on Ama­zon Prime. The se­ries takes place in 1958 in New York City. Midge Maisel (played by Rachel Bros­na­han, whom you might re­mem­ber as Doug Stam­per’s doomed ex-pros­ti­tute girl­friend, Rachel Pos­ner, on “House of Cards”) has her life on track: hus­band, kids and el­e­gant Yom Kip­pur din­ners in their Up­per West Side apart­ment. But when her life takes a sur­prise turn, she has to quickly de­cide what else she’s good at ... and go­ing from house­wife to standup comic is a wild choice to ev­ery­one but her. The pi­lot episode is avail­able now on Ama­zon, and you can see for your­self why ev­ery­one is rav­ing about this new se­ries.
