Q: Will Cas­tle re­turn in the fall? — An­thony Catan­zano, Greenacres

A: In fact, ABC re­newed the show in Jan­uary ... way be­fore the full fall lineup was made known last month. The Nathan Fil­lion-star­ring mys­tery show will be back for its fourth sea­son, re­tain­ing its Mon­day slot fol­low­ing Dancing With the Stars.

Q: There was a show called Per­sons Un­known, in which peo­ple were sent to a town and a ho­tel that they could not get out of. The last two episodes were dis­rupted by news events. Is there any place we can see them? — Jackie Jones, Fed­eral Way, Wash.

A: Though a com­plete se­ries DVD set was slated to be re­leased last Septem­ber, that ul­ti­mately was post­poned, and no new date has been an­nounced for the de­but of the set in­tended to com­pile the only sea­son of the NBC show that aired last sum­mer. Episodes from the se­ries re­main up at www.nbc. com, and writ­ten syn­opses of them can be found at var­i­ous In­ter­net sites.

Q: Why did Nancy O’Dell leave Ac­cess Hol­ly­wood only to show up on En­ter­tain­ment Tonight? — Janet Till­man, Howard, Ohio

A: At the time O’Dell left Ac­cess in 2009, there was no sim­i­lar open­ing at En­ter­tain­ment, since Mary Hart was still very much the week­night co-an­chor of the syn­di­cated mag­a­zine pro­gram. It was af­ter­ward that Hart’s de­par­ture be­came known.

Since O’Dell clearly had vast ex­pe­ri­ence in host­ing such a show, it was sort of a no-brainer that the En­ter­tain­ment pro­duc­ers went to her. In terms of her ac­cept­ing, O’Dell told us her­self late last year: “It’s the orig­i­nal, the one that be­gan this whole genre. I al­ways thought, ‘How great would it be to be a part of that show?’ ”

Q: Is it true that they are go­ing to can­cel The Chicago Code? — Bar­bara Kamin, Burien, Wash.

A: It’s not that “they are go­ing to”; it’s that “they did.” The po­lice drama was part of Fox’s rather ma­jor cleanout of its lineup, an­nounced the week be­fore the new en­tries in its 2011-12 sched­ule were con­firmed.
