Q: A while back I read that "Evil" was granted another season. Any information regarding the status of that series would be appreciated.
A: "Evil" will be back, but its return demonstrates one of the changes in how TV is presented. While the first season originally aired on the CBS broadcast network, the second will be only on the streaming service Paramount Plus beginning June 20.
This is one of two broadcast-to-streaming shifts involving CBS and its streaming sibling this season as a way to draw more viewers to Paramount Plus. The drama "SEAL Team" will start its fifth season this fall with four episodes on CBS, then move the rest of the season exclusively to Paramount Plus.
'Wilburn Brothers' on RFD
Q: The RFD-TV channel has a program called "The Wilburn Brothers." Looking at the program, I noticed how young some of the people look. I was wondering if you could let me know when the program was done.
A: Country-music duo Teddy and Doyle Wilburn had a syndicated TV show from 1963 to 1974. It was part of a period when syndicated country-TV shows were common; when I was growing up in the South, there was often a block of them on Saturday afternoons. For those of you tuning in late, RFD-TV calls itself "the nation's first 24-hour television network featuring programming focused on the agribusiness, equine and the rural lifestyles, along with traditional country music and entertainment." Its programming includes several of those syndicated shows, among them "The Porter Wagoner Show," which originally aired from 1960 to 1980 and featured a young Dolly Parton, and "Pop! Goes the Country" (1974-82).
'Council of Dads' disbanded
Q: I have not seen any continuation of "Council of Dads" this summer. Do you know if there are plans to continue it?
A: There are not. It was canceled in 2020 after a single season.
'Magnolias' to bloom again
Q: I have just finished watching "Sweet Magnolias" on Netflix. There was only one season listed. Episode 10 was a real cliffhanger! Are there any other episodes planned to tie up loose ends?
A: Yes. A second season of the show inspired by Sherryl Woods' books has been ordered. Reports indicate the new episodes will arrive on Netflix in 2022.
