Here's Lucy Season 5 DVD to be Released
Here's Lucy - Season 5 DVD set is in-the-works from MPI Home Video, as mentioned in an insert found with the CBS DVD release of The Lucy Show - The Official 4th Season. The insert had an early look at the package art and also there is a pre-order link to purchase the title from Amazon and it shows a release date of February 28th, and a cost of $20.99.
This will be a 4-DVD disc set. However, the release date shown may turn out to be correct, but actually isn't finalized just yet. There's a "technical issue" they have to overcome before the formal scheduling can take place, and they hope that this happens soon and the official word could then go out.
MPI only describes the same sort of bonus material that has been including with all of their releases of this program: "exclusive featurettes and videotaped introductions by Lucie Arnaz, Desi Arnaz Jr., guest stars and production personnel; unreleased home movies and behind-the-scenes footage; 'Let's Talk to Lucy': long-lost radio shows where Lucy interviews celebrities; bloopers, promos, commercials and other special footage."
Season's 1 through 5 are now available and can be found through the Everything Lucy store. Be sure to visit and get your DVDs today!
UPDATE: News that the release date is February 28, 2012 and that he MSRP for the 4 disc DVD set will be $29.98, although Amazon has it listed at pre-order for $21.99.
