In mid-November we reported
DVDs were on the minds of the show's producers from the start, and that writer Paul Dini had mentioned them, and that TVShowsOnDVD owner Gord Lacey had gotten additional information about all the work that was going into the set's production. What we mainly didn't know then was the timeframe to expect it in. However, as we said, it was a pretty safe bet to say that we expect that it would be "released in the weeks leading up the start of the second season."
Yesterday there was a Lost
bulletin at SciFiWire
, the news service of SciFi.com (the website of the Sci Fi Channel). It talked a lot about various goings-on at the show, but it also mentioned the DVDs in passing. This time, the timeframe was clearly mentioned:
(Co-Creator Damon) Lindelof said that a DVD set of the first season will come out this summer, before a second season begins in the fall.
So, late in the Summer of 2005, it looks like. It's good to narrow it down a bit. There's still much more info to come, once the studio (Buena Vista) makes their official announcement. Stay tuned and we'll bring all of that to you! Thanks to reader Bobby Parker for letting us know about SciFiWire's post.
