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.
