‘Fargo’ will own a piece of Rock
Q: Will “Fargo” ever come back with another season? – Kim Jacob, DeLand, Fla.
A: It will, but not until early 2020 at the soonest. That owes to how busy the chief creative force behind the FX series, writer-producer Noah Hawley, has been with other projects (including a couple of movies). He and the show’s staff have been working on “Fargo” scripts for Season 4 – which will star Chris Rock as a Kansas City underworld kingpin – and filming of them should begin this fall.
Q: I used to love “JAG,” and now I’m hearing about some sort of “JAG” reunion project. What are the details? – Brian Harris, via e-mail
A: It’s going to happen on “NCIS: Los Angeles,” over that CBS show’s final two episodes of the season. On May 12, David James Elliott will resurface as Capt. Harmon “Harm” Rabb Jr. in the first of two appearances, in which the character teams with NCIS agents Callen and Hanna (Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J) to track down ISIS-affiliated villains. That plot will continue on May 19, also bringing in Catherine Bell (who’s been starring in Hallmark Channel’s “Good Witch” franchise lately) in her former “JAG” role as Lt. Col. Sarah “Mac” MacKenzie. It turns out that Mac is an old friend of Hetty (Linda Hunt) of “NCIS: Los Angeles,” who can use her direct help in the case. The original “NCIS” series was, of course, spun off from “JAG” – thus the connection.
