Television Q&A: What is happening with ‘Leverage: Redemption’?

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 March 2. According to, “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 traveling 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, beca
