This past Tuesday, Universal Studios Home Entertainment announced
an October 1st
release of Murder, She Wrote - The Complete Series
on DVD. Package art wasn't available at the time, but now we've got all-around looks at the 12-season set for you below. Our thanks to reader Matt Stillwell for his help with this.
Based on notes we've seen in e-mail, on Facebook and Twitter, and elsewhere, it is apparent that a number of fans are confused by the 63-DVD disc count. According to the studio info sent to retailers, all 63 discs will be single-sided (just like will be the case with Magnum P.I. - The Complete Series
, releasing on the same day). The info breaks down the disc count as being 6 DVDs per season for the first three seasons, and 5 DVDs per season for the remaining run of the show, from Seasons 4 through 12. That's 63 discs for 12 seasons, and we'll repeat that the post-season telefilms will not be included, but can be bought separately. I agree with the fans, though; the studio should have put those in. But at least they're available!
