The Movie Database Support

Hey guys,

With the current TV methods, what would the best option be to grab the upcoming episodes for a TV Show? The apparent solution is to request info about a TV Show, get the "number of seasons", make another request with info about that season and loop through that season's episodes searching for those with date >= today.

Just wondering if there's a better solution.

Cheers, Tiago

Hi Tiago,

Yes, that probably is the only way right now. I have created a ticket to think about a discover method for TV episodes, that's here. Otherwise, you can also use the /tv/on_the_air method which looks at all of the episodes airing in the next 7 days. This is a TV show list though, not the individual episodes.


Hi Travis,

Thanks for the quick reply!

Alright, I guess I'll go with the method above for now.

On a sort of related topic, what's the best way to get the Related Shows of a TV Show at the moment?

Thanks, Tiago

Hi Tiago,

We don't have that available right now but it's on deck. Ticket for that feature is here.
