TV QUES­TIONS

Q: Will they be bring­ing Harry’s Law back at a later date, or is it fin­ished for good? They haven’t had it on the air long enough to get a fol­low­ing. — Anna White, Youngstown, Ohio A: NBC was very im­pressed with the rat­ings for the Kathy Batesstar­ring, David E. Kel­leypro­duced law drama, so it kept the show on the air longer than in­tended for its ini­tial run. It’s vir­tu­ally as­sured of be­ing re­newed for an­other sea­son in May.

Q: Can you tell me if the pro­gram Bos­ton Med will be back on the air? — Tena Smith, Durham, Maine

A: The suc­ces­sor to ABC’s sim­i­larly themed hos­pi­tal re­al­ity se­ries Hop­kins, Bos­ton Med won’t have a re­turn en­gage­ment this year. How­ever, next up in the ABC News-pro­duced fran­chise will be a seven-part pro­gram that pro­files em­ploy­ees and pa­tients at New York-Pres­by­te­rian Hos­pi­tal. The show is ex­pected to de­but in the spring or sum­mer of 2012.

Q: Will The Good Guys be back? It was my fa­vorite new show of the sea­son. — Sue Dean, Palm Beach Gar­dens

A: That’s a “no.” Fox had enough faith in the Bradley Whit­ford-Colin Hanks se­ries to carry it from be­ing a sum­mer of­fer­ing last year straight into the fall lineup, but in De­cem­ber, the net­work handed the show its can­cel­la­tion no­tice. Q: What hap­pened to The Cape? Will it re­turn any­time soon? — Joan Way­man, Ch­e­sa­peake, Va.

A: In a word, no. For starters, NBC re­duced the episode or­der for the se­ries that starred David Lyons as a crime fighter. The fi­nal show was posted on www.nbc.com for loy­al­ists. All of that points to The Cape not re­turn­ing, at least not on NBC.

Q: Could we have the rea­son for the end­ing of The Closer? — Betty MacCoon, Ca­mano Is­land, Wash.

A: Very sim­ply, se­ries star Kyra Sedg­wick be­lieves seven sea­sons is enough for her, and TNT and Warner Bros. Tele­vi­sion didn’t want to con­tinue in the se­ries’ present form with­out her. Its fi­nal round be­gins July 11.
