A new town, a new job, a new identity. The Fugitive returns with a second volume of 16 Season Two episodes, on DVD for the first time! This classic series continues to maintain exceptional standards in storytelling, with nail-biting dramatics and exciting guest stars. David Janssen stars as prison escapee Richard Kimble, the doctor falsely convicted of killing his wife, and determined to prove his innocence by leading Lt. Philip Gerard (Barry Morse) to the one-armed man who committed the crime. Because the compassionate Dr. Kimble has a natural inclination to help people, he always gets involved with strangers in need. But many discover his true identity, and he is forced to return to the road - a road that has no end. He remains The Fugitive!

, the rear package art notes that these episodes are "Transferred From the Original Negative with Restored Audio

" Will it be to the same extent
as on the most recent release? That's possible, but frankly we cannot know at this moment whether that's true or not. We'll try to get in touch with the studio and find out what we can, so stay tuned for more information about that...hopefully.
