Lionsgate Brings Fraggle Rock Back to DVD

The Jim Henson Company and Lionsgate Entertainment have just signed a distribution deal for more than 350-hours of content from the Jim Henson Company library. The agreement gives Lionsgate the North American distribution rights to content from the Jim Henson Company's film and television library, including television series, specials and other home entertainment titles. Included in the deal are the rights to the beloved television series Fraggle Rock, among others.

Lionsgate has already announced plans for their very first Henson Company releases which include the long-awaited stand-alone release of the fourth season of Fraggle Rock, plus a special holiday-themed Fraggle Rock release. Lionsgate plans to release "Fraggle Rock: The Complete Final Season" and "Fraggle Rock: A Merry Fraggle Holiday" on DVD on November 3, 2009.

Available on its own for the first time, the 5-disc "Fraggle Rock: The Complete Final Season" box set will include all 24 episodes from the last season of the series, plus all the new "season four" bonus material featured in the Complete Series box set. "Fraggle Rock: A Merry Fraggle Holiday" will collect three holiday episodes of Fraggle Rock on a single disc along with a variety of Henson-related holiday bonus material (including an episode of short-lived animated Fraggle Rock spin-off).

I will be sure to keep you updated as soon as more details on these (and other) Henson DVD titles become available.

I am interested to know what else they may be coming out with -- If they have the Henson library, maybe we can (at last) see a rekindling of interest in The Cube! (not that rubbish horror series, the original television awesomeness)

Hurrah! I’m so very glad to hear that this is finally going to be released! I had given up hope on ever getting the final season, since I (like so many others) had already purchased the first three seasons when they appeared on DVD, and couldn’t imagine spending all that money over again to buy the complete series boxed set.

I’m also looking forward to seeing what other releases come out of this new deal!
