First Hello! Welcome to the boards!
Second, I think i read on William Sadler's official site that they have the break in the winter to catch up on the filming.
I'm not sure when the next new episode is, I think I have heard rumors that there is supposed to be a christmas one this year
I can't stand reruns either, but I do know that the show was picked up for a full season, so we can expect more episodes
Glad to have you here!!!
