She can jump to the top of high buildings, single-handedly battle vicious thugs, run down high-speed vehicles and hear top-secret codes. She's The Bionic Woman…and she's back for more thrilling adventures in the gripping second season. With only brief interactions with her former love, Six Million Dollar Man Steve Austin (Lee Majors), Jaime Sommers (Lindsay Wagner in her Primetime Emmy Award-winning role) is on her own to test the limits of her incredible state-of-the-art bionic limbs.
But with the secretive Office of Scientific Investigations (OSI) sending her on increasingly dangerous and deadly covert missions, will she survive long enough to realize her full potential as the world's first female cyborg? It's non-stop action and excitement as Jaime battles enemy foreign agents, hostile extraterrestrials, and the fan-favorite fembots in 24 extraordinary episodes - including two crossover episodes with The Six Million Dollar Man!
Following up on last October's release of the first season
, Universal Studios Home Entertainment has today announced to press and retailers that The Bionic Woman - Season 2
will be out on May 17th
. The 5-DVD set presents every episode, remastered, in full screen video and with English mono sound, plus English subtitles. Cost is $39.98 SRP.
Besides the featured episodes of The Bionic Woman
, there will also be 2 cross-over episodes from The Six Million Dollar Man
: "The Return of Bigfoot, Part 1" and "Kill Oscar, Part 2" (so that the complete multi-part story of each can be watched in order, with no having to switch discs to the DVDs of another program). You will also get other bonus material, including an exclusive interview with show star Lindsay Wagner. That's all the extras that the studio has officially passed along at this time, but we know from show creator Kenneth Johnson that he's already recorded a commentary track for the 2-part story "Doomsday Is Tomorrow," which aired during this season. We also know that actress Janice Whitby, who played "Fembot Katy" in the 3-part story "Kill Oscar," has recorded interviews about her role in that arc, so we expect that to be included as well.
Stay tuned for updates about this title. In the meantime, there's a hi-res 3D look at the packaging below. Guest stars during this stellar season (besides Lee Majors, obviously) include Stefanie Powers, Ted Cassidy, Sandy Duncan, John Saxon, Severn Darden, Norman Fell, Marcia Lewis, Hoyt Axton, Doc Severinsen, Fionnula Flanagan, John Houseman, Jennifer Darling, Janice Whitby, Jack Colvin, Howard K.
