The Muppet Show Season 2 slated for summer 2007 release

Numerous issues have delayed the DVD box set, but release is expected during the summer of 2007

By Greg James

Fifteen months ago "The Muppet Show Season 1" was released on DVD, and ever since fans have been asking when they would be able to get their hands on season 2.

Pinning down the release hasn't been simple for Disney. Originally it was slated for February, then bumped to a tentative slot in late summer and then inexplicably delayed again. Legal clearances, material creation/restoration, marketing schemes, leadership changes, production priority schedules -- the reasons are complex and numerous.

Muppets.com polled fans on which Season 2 cover they'd like to see. The official cover has not yet been announced.

Brain Henson said earlier this year when IGN asked about the Muppet Show Season 2, that "Disney is so formulaic and careful and secretive about their DVD release plans" that even he didn't know when the set would be out.

Back in July Muppets.com launched a poll to allow fans to vote on the cover art for the upcoming second season release. Just a few weeks ago the poll was taken down, and the fans' speculation started up again. What does it mean? Is it coming? Was it canceled? What's going on?

Order The Muppet Show Season 1 for 30% off the regular price.
Well, we just got word from a reliable source within Buena-Vista Home Entertainment that there is no need to panic. The set is indeed coming. It's taken a while but it will be worth the wait. We were told they are "expecting release in the summer of 2007". They'd like to tell more about it, but everything is "top secret" right now. An official announcement with all the details is around the corner.

The set will be out in 2007 and season 3 is also expected for the future (although there are no details on timing).
