Q: Please tell me there will be more episodes of Lever­age and when we can ex­pect them. — Joy Dunn, Cor­pus Christi, Texas

A: There will be. En­com­pass­ing 10 new episodes this sum­mer, the TNT se­ries that stars Os­car win­ner Ti­mothy Hut­ton is set to be­gin June 26. Q: Has the se­ries Fairly Legal been can­celed, or when will it reappear? — Eve­lyn Cruik­shank, Colum­bus, Ohio

A: The USA Net­work show will be back with 13 new episodes start­ing early in 2012. Se­ries stars Sarah Shahi, Vir­ginia Wil­liams, Michael Trucco and Baron Vaughn are slated to re­turn, but ru­mor has it there may be some tin­ker­ing with the law drama for its sopho­more round.

Q: Man­nix was my fa­vorite tele­vi­sion show in the 1970s. What has Mike Con­nors done since Man­nix ended, and can you tell me any­thing about his fam­ily life? — Vickie David­son, Searcy, Ark.

A: Af­ter his long-pop­u­lar mys­tery se­ries ended in 1975, Con­nors re­turned to weekly work briefly in To­day’s F.B.I. dur­ing the 1981-82 sea­son. Mainly, though, he be­came a sta­ple of the TV movie and guest star cir­cuits. Among the shows he turned up on were The Love Boat, Mur­der, She Wrote, Diagnosis Mur­der, Walker, Texas Ranger and The Com­mish.

Con­nors also had a siz­able role in War and Re­mem­brance, ABC’s 1988-89 se­quel to The Winds of War. And ear­lier this year, Con­nors was among the vet­eran ac­tors com­ment­ing on the his­tory of pri­vate-eye shows on PBS’ Pi­o­neers of Tele­vi­sion minis­eries. Mar­ried since 1949, he has two chil­dren. Q: Per­haps I missed it, but is there any ex­pla­na­tion for the ab­sence of Andy Rooney from 60 Min­utes? — Con­stance Berry, Colum­bus, Ohio

A: Oth­ers have been cu­ri­ous about that lately, but he has no in­ten­tion of re­tir­ing ... at least ac­cord­ing to Susie Bieber, long his 60 Min­utes pro­ducer, who told that to the Al­bany (N.Y.) Times Union in April. By all ac­counts, his re­duced ap­pear­ances on the CBS news­magazine sim­ply are a func­tion of his be­ing 92 years old.
