We've been slammed by Everwood
fans asking about future releases of the show on DVD these past weeks, and Everwood
fans nearly took over the chat with Warner Bros hosted by the Home Theater Forum
last night. Fans repeatedly asked about the series, prompting the moderators to plea that people not ask about the series. Warner Bros made it very clear that they don't have any plans to release seasons 2, 3 or 4 on DVD.
"But why won't they release more Everwood
?" The simple answer is that not enough people bought seson 1. Once a studio releases a show to DVD they watch the sales of the set and use that to determine whether it's in their interest to continue with the series. If the sets sells well then they'll release season 2, but if it doesn't sell well then they don't schedule any more sets. Fans of Everwood
can convince Warner Bros to release the other seasons by purchasing season 1, assuming they haven't already done so. Writing letters and starting petitions won't help; the DVDs have to sell. It's true that the show has a very vocal fan base, but it appears to be too small to support future releases of the series on DVD.
Due to the volume of email we won't be able to reply to any more requests about the status of Everwood on DVD.
