‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ to Return for Season 3 in January

You have questions, I have some answers.

Q: Will “9-1-1: Lone Star” be coming back soon? They are a diverse group of coworkers that blend into a great storyline.

A: The third season arrives on Jan. 3, 2022, in the “9-1-1” time slot while that show takes a break. According to Fox, “After the events of the second season finale, the 126 is shut down and the crew is dispersed across the city. In the multi-episode opening storyline, a massive and unexpected Arctic front hits Austin with an ice storm, causing widespread chaos.”

Q: One of my favorite shows is currently in limbo and I suspect will likely be canceled through simple neglect and inattention. Any comments on whether it’s likely that “Pennyworth” will continue?

A: The series about the adventures of Alfred Pennyworth before he became Bruce Wayne’s aide will be back, but in a different location. First made for Epix for two seasons, it will have a third arriving in 2022 – on HBO Max. (Max will also begin showing the first two seasons early next year.) According to HBO Max, “Season three begins after a five-year time jump: the civil war (in England) is over and a cultural revolution has changed the world for better or worse – ushering in a new age of Super Heroes and Supervillains.”

Q: Any idea when “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” will return?

A: The wonderful Prime Video series will be back for a fourth season on Feb. 18, 2022, with two new episodes every Friday for four weeks. Says Prime Video: “It’s 1960 and change is in the air. Looking to hone her act, Midge finds a gig with total creative freedom. But her commitment to her craft – and the places it takes her – creates a rift between her and the family, and friends around her.”

Q: My wife and I have been watching old “Will & Grace” episodes and watched the season finale where both Will and Grace had kids and partners. Fast-forward to newer episodes and there is no mention of kids or partners. What gives?

A: When the comedy ended its original run in 2006, the finale found Will (Eric McCormack) and Grace (Debra Messing) each with a husband and a child. But when it came back, series co-creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan reportedly did not want to deal with Will and Grace as parents, and wanted to see them struggle again in relationships. So, the events from the old finale were tossed aside. (Veteran TV viewers will remember that the revival of “Roseanne” also dropped a lot of storylines from the end of the earlier version of the series.)

In addition, Mutchnick told Variety that the first “Will & Grace” finale was too much about “quote-unquote normal relationships” and “wasn’t as honest as to who the characters were.” When the series ended for a second (and, Mutchnick has insisted, final) time, Will and Grace each had a child and were sharing a home. “They are each other’s family,” Mutchnick told Variety. “This ending, to me, felt a little bit more honest than the ending we did the first time, in that they end up together.”

Seymore’s Late Goal Lifts United to Road Victory

The second half of Sunday’s game in Montclair, New Jersey, was not necessarily New Mexico United’s finest hour.

Second-half stoppage time made up for it.

Will Seymore’s header in the opening seconds of stoppage time netted the decisive goal as United escaped with a 2-1 victory over New York Red Bulls II at MSU Soccer Park. New Mexico secured three points and kept its impressive road streak intact, but only after receiving a scare from the USL Championship Eastern Conference’s last-place club.

United coach Zach Prince conceded that things were tighter than his team might have liked, but the outcome was exactly what he had in mind.

“I’m really proud of the result,” Prince said in a postgame interview. “When you look at the first half, we could’ve completed some of those chances and it wouldn’t have been so close at the end. But at the end of the day we came here for three points and that’s what we got.”

A nail-biter seemed quite unlikely in the first half, when United wasted little time grabbing the lead. Neco Brett converted his team-leading seventh goal of the season on a tap-in, set up on a cross from Jerome Kiesewetter, who drew the defense to him on a run up the left wing before sending the ball across the box to Brett.

New Mexico (10-3-8) thoroughly dominated the first half, outshooting the home team 7-1 and putting the only three shots on target. But United was unable to cash in on numerous opportunities to extend its 1-0 lead, missing the frame on several occasions and watching New York goalkeeper Giannis Nikopolidis turn aside a late blast by Brett.

But after putting up little resistance over the first 45 minutes, the Red Bulls suddenly found some life after halftime. Steven Sserwadda misfired wide at an open goal in the 52nd minute, but he capitalized on an opportunity four minutes later. A bounding ball deflected off two United defenders and settled at the feet of Sserwadda in front of the New Mexico goal, where he tucked it under goalkeeper Alex Tambakis to make the score 1-1.

Suddenly energized, New York (2-16-3) continued to apply pressure over the next 15 minutes, forcing Tambakis to make a pair of saves to keep the score even.

Prince made a handful of substitutions that seemed to help New Mexico regain its form, including bringing on recent signee Romario Williams and New Jersey native Amando Moreno along the front line. It was Moreno’s first action of the season after recovering from offseason ACL surgery.

New Mexico then got a break when New York’s Hassan Ndam picked up his second yellow card in the 75th minute. The resulting red card left United with a man advantage.

It appeared the Red Bulls might preserve a draw until United earned a corner kick in the final seconds of regulation time. Justin Portillo served a well-placed ball in front of the goal, and Seymore rose to head it home for a 2-1 New Mexico lead. It was Seymore’s first goal for United and Portillo’s fourth assist of the season.

“This has been coming for Will,” Prince said. “I’m sure he’d like to score more goals but he’s such a big part of what we do. I’m happy for him.”

New Mexico missed a chance to seal the win when Nikoplidis stopped a Portillo penalty kick in the 95th minute, but United did not allow the home team to seriously threaten until the final whistle sounded.

The victory improved United’s road record to 7-1-3 and extended its overall unbeaten streak to seven matches. NMU has not lost a road match since April 16 at Phoenix.

United’s returns home to host Sacramento Republic FC on Wednesday.
