The Movie Database Support

I'm not sure if I'm calling the credits endpoint correctly, but I'm not getting the full list it seems (at least for the show Nashville--just testing stuff out). The example endpoint that I am calling is this:

https://api.themoviedb.org/3/tv/44549/credits?api_key={{key}}&language=en-US

I am only getting 7 cast members back and 0 crew members. The TMDB website shows much more than that. Any ideas?

The aggregated cast you see on the website is not available on the API. It's a relatively new feature on the website. You can vote for and/or follow my open ticket for this here.

By default, previously, all that was returned at the series level like this is the cast that has been added to the newest season.

Hello Travis,

Do I understand correctly that there is currently no way to get the full list of cast, crew, and guest_star for a TV show other than walking the episode/credits endpoints 40 at a time?

I want to end up with something like

    Jonathan frakes ID#123 

    StarTrek:TNG actor qty 100

    StarTrek:TNG director qty 6

Thanks, I upvoted the ticket. Seems pretty important to me.

In essence, yes. You can pull the regular season cast and crew credits from each season call, but to get the guest stars, you would need to request the credit details at an episode level.

Like I said, I only recently added the aggregated view to the website, so it's a pretty new feature. It's got some kinks I still need to work out before I would feel comfortable pushing it on the API.

Understood, thank you! I appreciate your API immensely.
