The Complete 1st Season


Six-season collection is coming from Shout! Factory in May, according to Amazon

Posted by David Lambert
In 2005 and 2006, Fox Home Entertainment released the first four seasons of the '70s scripted sitcom, which starred Bob Newhart, Suzanne Pleshette, Marcia Wallace and Bill Daily. Back in 2011, it seemed that DVDs of the 5th and 6th seasons - the last two of the legendary series - were coming out at last...but that never happened. Fans have been champing at the bit to own ALL the seasons of the program on disc. And now it seems that Shout! Factory is making it happen!

The studio hasn't announced it yet, but a new pre-order listing shows a May 27th in-store release for The Bob Newhart Show - The Complete Series on DVD! If the big e-tailer is correct (and we have no reason to doubt the info at this entry), it will contain all 6 seasons in one package for $129.99 SRP. Extras, if any, and package art haven't been made available yet, but stay tuned.

What about individual season sets of Season 5 and Season 6, for those who've collected the first four season packs? Clearly we have no word about that, as Shout! hasn't formally released info to the media about any of this. However, there's no reason to believe that they wouldn't take the discs from those season from the big set, and make them available separately later on. Stay tuned for word on that, too, as further developments occur!
