The Movie Database Support

 Ongoing Maintenance

Dear TMDb Community,

In the next few months, you might notice some changes on our site. My primary goal is, and always has been, to build the best media database on the internet and in order for me to stay true to that goal, we will be making these changes to enable TMDb to be more robust and reliable than before.

As you might recall from my 2019 recap, I have some pretty amazing plans for 2020 so stay tuned for some really fantastic launches this year!

If you have any questions please contact us at



Greetings TMDB Community! Congratulations for such a great job maintaining this useful API!
I have a doubt. I have submitted a Mobile App for your analysis, but I haven't received approval response. I was wondering how long usually does it take to get any approval response or any feedback about the disapproval or the reason why an app is rejected. Thanks in advance for your attention!

Hi @matavic,

I haven't been approving API apps at the moment. There's a lot of work I need to do in order to figure out what is going to happen with the apps directory. In its current state, it's not maintainable so I've been thinking about what another version of this might look like.

When I go ahead with whatever proposed changes I decide on, everyone with a pending app will be notified of the path forward.
