TV QUES­TIONS

Q: What a sea­son of Jus­ti­fied! We were in shock at Mags’ demise; she was a very strong char­ac­ter, and we can­not imag­ine the show with­out her. Where is she go­ing? And when will the show be on again? — Gay­lene Kester, Lake Stevens, Wash.

A: Margo Martin­dale, the now-Emmy-nom­i­nated ac­tress in ques­tion, is mov­ing on to an­other se­ries. She stars with Pa­trick Wilson in the CBS drama A Gifted Man, pre­mier­ing Sept. 23. Though FX has re­newed Jus­ti­fied for a third sea­son, there’s no set date on when that will be­gin run­ning; we’d ex­pect that to hap­pen dur­ing the first quar­ter of 2012.

Q: I bought Sea­son 6 of The Shield, but un­less there is a Sea­son 7, the se­ries doesn’t come to a con­clu­sion. Am I miss­ing some­thing? — Bill Car­pen­ter, Fort Lup­ton, Colo.

A: Yes ... Sea­son 7. There was one, and it wrapped up the FX po­lice drama’s run in 2008 with what ap­peared to be a res­o­lu­tion to the saga of rogue cop Vic Mackey (Michael Chik­lis). It was re­leased on DVD in June 2009.

Q: I en­joyed watch­ing The Drew Carey Show. Will it go into syn­di­ca­tion or be re­leased on video? — Dee Stag­gers, Weir­ton, W.Va.

A: The sit­com went into syn­di­ca­tion al­most im­me­di­ately af­ter its ABC run ended. Ad­mit­tedly, it hasn’t shown up much in more re­cent years. Only the com­plete first sea­son of The Drew Carey Show has been made avail­able. There’s also a “Tele­vi­sion Fa­vorites”com­pi­la­tion from the se­ries that in­cludes the pi­lot and five episodes cho­sen from the first four sea­sons.

Q: How many sea­sons did Bo­nanza run? Did Lorne Greene and Dan Blocker die dur­ing or af­ter the se­ries? Is Per­nell Roberts still liv­ing? — Lee Schae­fer, Sun­river, Ore.

A: Let’s take these in or­der. The clas­sic Western about the Cartwright clan aired on NBC from 1959 to 1973.

Greene, alias fam­ily pa­tri­arch Ben Cartwright, died in 1987. Blocker (Hoss) died a year be­fore Bo­nanza ended its run, in the spring of 1972. And Roberts (Adam) died in early 2010.
