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

In order for someone to help you with API Request questions, it is critical that you post here the API Request you are using.
Remember to replace your Key with THE_KEY , or something like that.

If you are making an API Request of this type,
then you can see the list of people at the bottom of the page.
For each person there is something like this:

cast_id 4
character   "The Narrator"
credit_id   "52fe4250c3a36847f80149f3"
gender  2
id  819
name    "Edward Norton"
order   0
profile_path    "/5XBzD5WuTyVQZeS4VI25z2moMeY.jpg"

See that the item ID exists: id 819

And see the link to that ID:

Oh ok,thank you so much
