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



While trying to featch the data using,videos,release_dates,reviews,credits,recommendations,similar

It is providing all expected response but on similar part, it it giving me null data and app is crashing because I am expecting data which should at least show empty data if not available. but it is throwing me no data of similar but only recommended.


  "backdrop_path": "/2Ahm0YjLNQKuzSf9LOkHrXk8qIE.jpg",
  "original_language": "en",
  "original_name": "True Detective",
  "overview": "An American anthology police detective series utilizing multiple timelines in which investigations seem to unearth personal and professional secrets of those involved, both within or outside the law.",
  "popularity": 26.485,
  "poster_path": "/aowr4xpLP5sRCL50TkuADomJ98T.jpg",
  "production_companies": [....],
  "seasons": [....],
  "status": "Returning Series",
  "type": "Scripted",
  "vote_average": 8.3,
  "vote_count": 1353,
  "external_ids": {...},
  "reviews": {....},
  "credits": {....},
  "recommendations": {...}


here I can not get similar result as expected.

Also what is most unusual is the same API response from 2 different devices gives two different data.,videos,release_dates,reviews,credits,recommendations,similar gives response with similar block also without similar block

Hi @mitab86,

I believe this was a temporary issue causes by the service that powers similarity going down for a brief window on Wednesday night. Let me know if you see anything else.

Yes, it has been solved. Thank you @travisbell
