Muppet Show Season 2 slated for summer 2007 release
issues have delayed the DVD box set, but release is expected during
the summer of 2007
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.
down the release hasn't been simple for Disney. Originally it was
slated for February, then bumped to a tentative slot in late summer

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?
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).
