Q: I understand "Unforgettable" with Poppy Montgomery is a summer-only show. I have really enjoyed it and wonder if there's a chance we'll see more.
I didn't even realize there was a first season. I loved Poppy in "Without a Trace" and it's good to have her back.
A: CBS has ordered a third, 13-episode season of the drama for telecast in summer 2014. In addition, there are half a dozen episodes still unaired from the second season that the network will show at some point.
For more about summer series, see the next answer.

Q: Will "Mistresses" be returning?
A: Yes. ABC plans to give it another summer run in 2014. Summer series are becoming increasingly useful tools for the networks trying to keep audiences around during a period that used to be filled with reruns.
Several from 2013 -- including "Mistresses," the previously mentioned "Unforgettable" and the big hit "Under the Dome" -- were renewed after their summer success.

Q: I am surprised that neither "Hoarders" on A&E or "Hoarding: Buried Alive" on TLC seem to be returning.
Weren't these much-watched series? They certainly are still talked about a lot.
A: You are half right. "Hoarding: Buried Alive" will be back in spring 2014. "Hoarders" has ended its run on A&E.
It did have six seasons, as well as DVD releases of episodes,
I often found its stories fascinating, but at the same time, there came a point where the tales were sadly redundant, and where A&E likely saw better ways to fill its TV time.
