See a very satisfying season three finale of “Old Dogs & New Tricks” – will there be a season four?

Really enjoyed the season three finale of Old Dogs & New Tricks.

There’s some good stuff here with one of my favorites being a hilarious slapfest between Nathan (Leon Acord) and Nelson Van Eddy (Bruce L. Hart)

Following a humiliating hookup with a young bartender, Nathan is a wreck. As in previous season finales, he seeks support from a therapist. But as he’s “between shrinks,” Nathan calls WeHo Crisis Hotline. In the wee hours of Christmas morning, the phone counselor (Wenzel Jones) is in no mood to hear about petty “boy troubles.”

Muscles (Jeffrey Patrick Olson) spends Christmas snowbound in Ohio with parents Ralph & Lillianne Carter (Carl Moebus, special guest star Scott). Cabin fever is setting in as Mother confronts Son. It seems Lillianne can read Muscles like a book. (“You’re the only mother in the world to out her own son,” Muscles notes.)

She wants to know his real reasons for coming home–then offers profound advice (in a wonderfully acted scene).

New tabloid-sensation Ross (David Pevsner) spends Christmas evening “in seclusion,” nestled in front of the fireplace with publicist Dan (Jeffrey Scott Basham).

Having hit at “rock bottom,” Brad (Curt Bonnem) is spending Christmas in a stoned stupor.  But a surprise visit from an unlikely “Christmas angel” offers the washed-up rocker an unexpected shot at redemption and a chance to do what he was “put on Earth to do.”

It seems like a happy ending at last for the much beleaguered actor—a return to the professional spotlight and promising personal developments. That is, until a knock at the front door changes everything. This is a real cliffhanger.

But the real cliffhanger is the future of the show. Will there be a fourth season?  Acord says he can’t comment yet, but hopes to make an announcement soon.
