Moving on: Kasie Hunt leaves MSNBC for CNN+; ‘One Day at a Time’ canceled

You have questions. I have some answers.

Q: My wife and I are MSNBC fans and miss Kasie Hunt very much since she left a few weeks ago. Have you learned who Kasie works for now and exactly what she is doing? Any information would be much appreciated.

A: She has joined CNN as an anchor and chief national affairs analyst. According to the network, she will also host a daily politics show on CNN+ as well as appearing on CNN. And yes, CNN+ is a subscription-based streaming service; it’s getting so a plus-sign in a programmer’s name means “add to your viewing expenses.” CNN+ is due in early 2022.

Q: Will the reboot of “One Day at a Time” be returning?

A: Sadly, no. The wonderful series starring Justina Machado and Rita Moreno has now been canceled twice. Netflix dropped it in 2018 after three seasons, contending “not enough people watched to justify another season.” Sony Pictures TV, the studio behind the show, looked for a new home and found one on the Pop service (along with telecasts on TV Land and CBS). But, as reported, the pandemic shrank that fourth season to just seven episodes — six live-action and one animated. Ratings were not strong enough to keep it going for a fourth season, with the plug pulled the second time late in 2020. And by the end of that year, writer-producer Gloria Calderon Kellett tweeted, “It’s officially over.” A real loss for TV.

Q: Is “Manifest” coming back?

A: In a June column, I noted that NBC had dropped the show but that reruns were doing well on Netflix, and it was possible that streaming service would order new episodes. And now we know that it has.

Variety reported that there will be a fourth and final season for Netflix. “The streamer has also announced that this new season will consist of 20 episodes, which is more than any one season received on NBC. (The first consisted of 16 episodes, and the second and third had 13 episodes each.) Whether all 20 are released at once or in multiple parts was not announced.”

Series creator Jeff Rake told that the show hopes to be shooting episodes by November or December “to get episodes to everyone as soon as possible.” Getting the cast members back is being negotiated but, Rake said, “I am hopeful that everybody is back.”
