Q: Will “Nurse Jackie” ever return to Showtime? It’s been a long time since they showed a new episode. – Lynnie Angus, Bellaire, Ohio

A: The sixth season of Edie Falco’s series is scheduled to begin April 13, and it will return on the strength of an Emmy win for co-star Merritt Wever, alias the show’s Zoey.

Q: I’ve been wondering what David James Elliott has been doing since the end of “JAG.” – Neva Musgrave, Vienna, W.Va.
