Gunsmoke - Same-Day Release for 'The 8th Season, Volume 1' AND ''!


DVD half-season sets will both be in stores for the first Tuesday in May

With tomorrow being the street date of The 7th Season, Volume 2 on DVD, CBS/Paramount has wasted no time in announcing that May 7th will see the release for Gunsmoke - The 8th Season, Volume 1. This 962-minute set will include Sponsor Material, and Preview Trailers for 10 episodes.

But wait...there's more! For the first time, CBS/Paramount are also scheduling both half-seasons of Gunsmoke for the same street date! In 2007, the first season was released as one complete item, but every season released thereafter has been done as half-season sets which were put out months apart from each other. Fans who saw other CBS DVD shows get both half-season set releases on the same street date have been jealous, and now it seems the studio has gotten the message: Gunsmoke - The 8th Season, Volume 2 will also be out on May 7th as well. It will also run 962 minutes, include Sponsor Material, and it will have Preview Trailers for 13 episodes.

Cost is $49.99 SRP each, but you can pre-order them at a discount. Package art for these two titles hasn't been made available as of this writing, but we'll update you as soon as we get them. Stay tuned!
