Q: Do you know why Derek Hough isn’t on Dancing With the Stars this sea­son? — Ros­alie Cur­tis, De­Land

A: He’s sitting out the cur­rent round of the ABC show to con­cen­trate on film­ing a dance-re­lated movie — sur­prise! — ti­tled Cobu 3D. How­ever, the brother of fel­low dancer Ju­lianne Hough re­port­edly will be back for the 13th sea­son of the pro­gram this fall.

Q: I would like to know if Curb Your En­thu­si­asm is go­ing to re­sume and if so, when. — Dolores Strauss, West Palm Beach

A: It is, and the eighth sea­son of Larry David’s award-win­ning HBO com­edy — con­sist­ing of 10 new episodes — is set to be­gin July 10.

Q: I am cu­ri­ous as to whether Ware­house 13 and Haven will be re­turn­ing to Syfy this sum­mer. — Debi Leake, Colum­bus, Ohio

A: You’ll be happy to know that both will. Ware­house 13 will launch its third sea­son July 11 — with Aaron Ash­more, the for­mer Jimmy Olsen of Smal­lville, join­ing the cast — while Haven will launch sea­son two July 15 with a new co-star in Vi­nessa An­toine ( Be­ing Erica), as a schem­ing woman from Duke’s (Eric Bal­four) past.

Q: I dis­cov­ered that sea­son four of Dam­ages, star­ring Glenn Close, is only go­ing to be avail­able on DirecTV. Why would that be done? — Karen John­son, Scar­bor­ough, Maine

A: Be­cause it’s the only way the se­ries would keep go­ing. FX passed on re­new­ing the drama, so the ex­clu­sive-to-DirecTV deal was the one that the satel­lite provider made with Sony Pic­tures Tele­vi­sion, the stu­dio that pro­duces the show.

This doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily mean that non-DirecTV sub­scribers will never get to see the new sto­ries, which be­gin this sum­mer; as with past sea­sons of the show, Sony is likely to re­lease those episodes on home video af­ter they’ve had their tele­vi­sion plays. In fact, these might be of even more value in terms of DVD profit, since more peo­ple likely won’t have seen them be­fore they de­but in that for­mat.
