The Middleman - Street Date Scoop for Shout!'s Release of the Recently Canceled Series


4-disc set coming out the last week of July

At the end of January we passed along the word from Middleman creator Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost, Charmed, Jake 2.0) that Shout! Factory had acquired the rights to release the now-canceled series on DVD, and would be putting it out this summer (in time to tie in with the San Diego Comic Con). Now we've got the scoop on a specific release date for everybody!

One of our friends in the retail industry has told us what they found out: that Shout! Factory and distributor Vivendi Entertainment will release The Middleman - The Complete Series on July 28th. It will be a 4-DVD set running 540 minutes. No other information was available so far, but Grillo-Marxuach has already said to expect massive amounts of extras. Stay tuned for info about that, and package art, just as soon as we get our grubby little paws on it!

NOTE: Fans are being quick to point this out in e-mails, so let's address it. According to a post at Grillo-Marxuach's official blog, made the day after the cancellation story we linked to above, the show is NOT officially canceled yet...it's "dormant," and it's future will depend on what the sales of these DVDs are like. Which is kinda confusing, you have to admit, given that the title of this DVD release is "The Complete Series" (the emphasis is ours). Of course, there's still time for a title change if a renewal gets announced. Time will tell, we suppose. Not that we'd mind seeing more of the show, but things just aren't looking very good right now!
