Q: Is Fri­day Night Lights com­ing back, or have I missed find­ing it? — Cor­rine Tekavec, Den­ver

A: Now that the fi­nal sea­son of the crit­i­cally ac­claimed, Kyle Chan­dler-star­ring foot­ball drama has wrapped up its run on DirecTV, the last episodes are set to begin their NBC broad­cast run April 15.

Q: Af­ter Jean Sta­ple­ton left All in the Fam­ily, did the show con­tinue with Edith hav­ing died? — Myra Wolovick, Vero Beach A: It did, but in a slightly dif­fer­ent form. All in the Fam­ily mor­phed into Archie Bunker’s Place in 1979, and Sta­ple­ton ap­peared only on a re­cur­ring ba­sis dur­ing the first sea­son of that spinoff, dur­ing which she was writ­ten out of the se­ries with Edith’s death tak­ing place off-cam­era. Archie Bunker’s Place would con­tinue on CBS un­til 1983.

Q: Could you tell me if I’m cor­rect in say­ing that the child in the Dis­ney movie Eloise at the Plaza grew up to play Ariel, the old­est daugh­ter, on Medium? I think she also played the ill sis­ter in the movie My Sis­ter’s Keeper. —Mary Knapp, Colum­bus, Ohio

A: You are cor­rect in both cases. Sofia Vas­silieva is the young ac­tress; she also played the ti­tle char­ac­ter in the TV movie Eloise at Christ­mas­time. Q: We are se­niors and have won­dered if there could be re­peats of our fa­vorite se­ries, Dal­las. — Gene and Peggy We­ber, Haines City, Fla.

A: Some ca­ble net­works have had such re­peats over the years, and when all else fails, there al­ways are the DVD sets of the show that have been is­sued by Warner Home Video.

It’s pos­si­ble that the orig­i­nal se­ries may resur­face later this year, since TNT is mak­ing an up­dated Dal­las that will fea­ture orig­i­nal cast mem­bers Pa­trick Duffy and Linda Gray; at this writ­ing, Larry Hag­man was in ne­go­ti­a­tions to reprise the role of J.R. Ewing. Jor­dana Brew­ster ( The Fast and the Fu­ri­ous) and Josh Hen­der­son also will be in the re­vival.
