"The Muppet Show - Season 2" Coming This Fall

Awhile back I reported that The Muppet Show – Season 2 was bumped off Disney's release schedule due to production delays. The set was originally slated for February 2006 but was put "on hold to allow producers to "do it right".

But now several industry reports are revealing that Disney has now added The Muppet Show back to their release calendar! "The Muppet Show Season – 2" is currently situated for release in "Fall 2006" (just over a year after season 1's release). There is no specific release date yet, nor any disc specifications; but Disney is stating that the second season set will be out this fall!

Disney is expecting to be able to release all five seasons of The Muppet Show in time (and there are rumors of a complete Muppets Tonight set to follow the fifth season's release). Hopefully the third season's wait won't be as long. But I'm sure Buena Vista's extra time spent "doing it right" with these sets will be well worth it. Also to note, I'll keep you posted as soon as any more information surfaces.

Well, here it is "Fall 2006." www.muppets.com is allowing people to vote for their choice of cover for the Season 2 set, but I still can't find any information regarding a release date (which could just be my difficulty in navigating the Flash interface).

Any updated info??
