It's been a long wait (last July!) since the fifth season release, and fans are anxious! Well, the patience has paid off: this morning Sony Pictures Home Entertainment officially announces Bewitched - The Complete 6th Season
on DVD! The 4-disc set contains all 30 episodes from Dick Sargent's first year as "Darrin," and includes the episode where Adam Stephens is born! It streets on May 6th
(note: we previously said the 20th; we regret the error).
You'll also see a ton of guest stars as always, including Johnny Whitaker, Deacon Jones, Jay Robinson, William Schallert, Pat Priest, Paul Sorensen, Danny Bonaduce, Bernie Kopell, Carol Wayne, Charles Lane, and Jack Cassidy (father of David and Shaun) plus recurring guests such as Agnes Moorehead (Endora), Alice Ghostley (Esmerelda), Bernard Fox (Dr. Bombay), Maurice Evans (Maurice), Paul Lynde (Uncle Arthur), Sandra Gould (Gladys Kravitz) and George Tobias (Abner Kravitz).
The release will cost $39.95 SRP for 760 minutes covering all 30 episodes. As we said, those episodes are in color, and with full screen video, while audio is in English Mono, French Mono, Spanish Mono, and Portuguese Mono. Subtitles are English, Portuguese and Spanish. The only extras will be a couple of "minisodes" (3-6 minute super-short versions of regular Sony-owned television episodes from classic primetime shows).
We've got the studio description for you,
plus an early look at the box art (not necessarily the final front cover, so this could be subject to change) UPDATE
: Sony has now kindly provided us with the final box art for this release:
The magic on Morning Glory Circle continues as Samantha (Elizabeth Montgomery), Darrin (Dick Sargent), and Endora (Agnes Moorehead) return in Bewitched - The Complete Sixth Season. Notable for being Dick Sargent's first season as Darrin. Samantha, a powerful member of the society of witches that has lived apart from (and disdained) humanity for many centuries, falls in love with a mortal, Darrin Stephens. Much to the disgust of most of her family, she vows to give up witchcraft and become an ordinary suburban housewife, raising a family (bearing Tabitha and Adam). Never able to give up her heritage completely, the friction between the matriarchal, moneyless society of her birth and the patriarchal, capitalist society of modern advertising drives the comedy over eight seasons and 256 episodes, from 1964 to 1971.
Tabitha runs away to be in "Jack and the Beanstalk." Darrin is frozen in a mirror when Maurice finds out the baby isn't named for him. Endora turns Darrin into a witch. Serena returns to complicate things, and Samantha has to get rid of Santa when he overstays his welcome.
