We're less than two months away from marking the 6-year anniversary for the DVD release of the first season
of the show, and after this phenomenally long wait it looks like fans will finally get a crack at owning Jeremiah - Season 2
on DVD! This final season of the show won't be in stores, though: MGM has recently begun manufacture-on-demand releases which are distributed via Amazon.com (presumably using the seller's "CreateSpace" MOD program), and this is one of the studio's first two TV releases in that field.
The second and last season stars Luke Perry (Beverly Hills, 90210; John from Cincinnati
), Malcolm-Jamal Warner (The Cosby Show; Malcolm & Eddie
) and Sean Astin (24, Lord of the Rings
film trilogy). It consists of 14 episodes, including the 2-part season premiere and the double-length season/series finale. The show was created by J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5, The Real Ghostbusters
The MOD release of Jeremiah - Season 2
is available to pre-order
from Amazon, but no availability date has been provided so far. Instead the listing says "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
" As with all MOD releases, this cannot be sent to an address outside of the USA (for legal reasons, so don't blame the studio), and the listing therefore carries the notice "This title cannot be shipped internationally.
Cost is $39.98 SRP for 664 minutes, but Amazon is taking advance orders at a slightly discounted price (subject to change without notice, at Amazon's discretion). No regular-style DVD box art is appearing at the listing, but since MOD releases of titles from MGM are a new thing, we're not certain yet if they are using standard retail-style packaging, or something more generic. The first MOD releases through Amazon for the studio don't ship until Dec. 15th, and consist of catalog films such as Far North, Trapeze, Rich in Love
and A Fish in the Bathtub
. Amazon's listings for these show the same generic picture design (including the individual titles on the design) as the Jeremiah - Season 2
listing shows...so perhaps that IS what the package will look like. If we find out differently, or anything further about this release, we'll certainly let you know! We'll also update you when we find out what the specific ship date will be for this title, so stay tuned.
