This past April we passed along word
that the Here's Lucy - Season 5
DVD set was in-the-works from MPI Home Video, as mentioned in an insert found with the CBS DVD release of The Lucy Show - The Official 4th Season
. The insert even had an early look at the package art, which we've got once again at the bottom for you. Above that is a pre-order link to purchase the title from Amazon.com; this listing was added yesterday on the Thanksgiving holiday, and it shows a release date of February 28th
, and a cost of $29.98 SRP. The disc count says "1," but we've confirmed with the studio that this will be a 4-DVD set. However, our studio contact tells us that the release date shown may turn out to be correct, but actually isn't finalized just yet. There's a "technical issue" they have to overcome before the formal scheduling can take place, and they hope that this happens next week and the official word could then go out. It will be at least that long, we're told, before things are set in stone. So for now, take the Amazon-displayed date with a small grain of salt, until the studio confirms it completely. Stay tuned! Our thanks to reader Mark C Bale for being the first to clue us in about the Amazon entry.
