"The Muppet Show: Season Two" is on the Schedule!

For the past 16-months we've been waiting (and waiting) for the next installment of "The Muppet Show" to come to DVD. There have been some bumps along the way (due to all the legal and technical complications required to put these DVDs together). Well you better start saving your pennies now, because the wait will soon be over!

I received good word from several key sources that "The Muppet Show: Season Two" has officially been put onto Buena Vista Home Entertainment's schedule for "Summer 2007". The exact release date has not been released yet, but it is projected to be sometime in the range of 120-200 days from now! The four-disc DVD set is being listed as a "special edition" (like the first season was) and I'm told that there will be some cool extras on the set as well (however no word on what exactly they are yet).

This 24-episode set will be worth the wait, I'm told. The remaining seasons of "The Muppet Show" are in the works for release and should follow close behind (lets just hope the release dates of the future sets' won't be as spaced out). The official announcement, disc features, cover art, and technical specs for the "Season Two" box set should be released in the coming weeks. I will keep you all posted as soon as I hear anything more on the subject.

Thanks for the update. As I read it, I must admit my emotion went from yelling "Yea" and waving my arms around in excitement, to rather forelorn dissapointment to find out that, in fact the season is yet again being delayed. Last announcement noted that the set was expected in the first quarter of this year (which would be in January, February or March), but now it is looking like June, July or August, with still no firm date. *sigh* Anyone else feel like a song from one of Kermit's depressive bouts?

My 8 years old son LOVES The Muppet Show Season One. He has been waiting so long for The Muppet Show Season Two to be released. He has been terribly disappointed more than twice when Season Two had not been released as stated in the past. He is a great fan of The Muppet. Please do not disappoint him again.

Still nothing anywhere on the second muppet season. Is there another delay looming?

I am very disappointed, not in the show - which is awesome as it always was, but there were no "muppet morsels" in the extras of season two like there were in season one. Since they took an extra year to get the dvds out you would think they wouldn't have left this out!!!
