What is happening with ‘Leverage: Redemption’?
You have questions. I have some answers.
Q Whatever happened to “Leverage: Redemption” that starred Noah Wyle? I was really enjoying the show.
A The series completed telecasts of a 13-episode second season in January on Freevee (which is also available via Prime Video). It looked as if the caper series was ready for a third season but I have not seen an announcement about one yet.
Q In a December column, you said “Alaska Daily” would be returning on Feb. 23. That does not seem to be the case. Do you have an update on the show? A ABC moved the drama’s return to Thursday, March 2. According to TVLine.com, “The move will allow viewers to watch the remainder of Season 1 uninterrupted over the course of five consecutive weeks.” Q Will there be any more “Dexter” shows with Michael C. Hall?
A As you know, Hall’s serial killer character, Dexter Morgan, was killed at the end of “Dexter: New Blood” last year. But Showtime has announced plans for a “Dexter: Origins” series about the character as a young man; a return of “New Blood” focusing on Dexter’s son Harrison, and possibly “projects based on other characters from the ‘Dexter’ universe.” Q We recently watched “The Hammer” with Reba McEntire. Is there any possibility a series will follow instead of just the one movie? A For those of you tuning in late, the Lifetime movie starred McEntire as travelling judge Kim Wheeler, a character inspired by real-life judge Kimberly Wanker. McEntire has reportedly said she’d like to play Wheeler again in more movies or a series, because “I just fell in love with the character.” And, she told Showbiz Cheat Sheet, Wanker has plenty of stories to inspire new productions.
Q What happened to “Mr. Inbetween”? Is there a new season? It was very quirky and original. A The drama about a hitman, and inspired by the movie “The Magician,” aired on FX for three seasons, ending in 2021. You can find the old episodes on Hulu.
Q My daughter and I really loved a show on ABC years ago called “The Crossing.” It was cancelled and disappeared. Is there anywhere you know of to find it? A The science-fiction drama starring Steve Zahn ran on ABC for a single season in 2018. One place you can find the episodes is Prime Video.
