In September 1999, the ABC network debuted a show called Once and Again
(two of that show's three seasons have been put out on DVD
). Three days after that romantic drama's first episode was broadcast, the CBS network premiered a science fiction thriller program with a very similar name, Now and Again
. This program starred Eric Close (Nashville, Dark Skies
), Dennis Haysbert (24, The Unit
), Margaret Colin ("Eleanor Waldorf" in Gossip Girl
), plus recurring appearances by John Goodman (Roseanne, Alpha House
). The show ran for a single season of 22 hour-long episodes, before being cancelled for ratings that didn't justify the high cost of each episode.
There has been no formal announcement yet by CBS DVD or Paramount Home Entertainment, but a new Amazon pre-order listing
shows that Now and Again - The Complete Series
is coming to DVD on July 22nd
. The listing gives a $39.98 SRP list price (but you can lock in a copy for yourself, at discounted prices, right away!). No other information is there yet, nor do they have any cover art. Since the item isn't officially scheduled by the studio at this time, then you might want to consider this info to be non-finalized, and possibly subject to change. But that's what we know so far! Our thanks to one of our long-time readers, "Matt," for spotting this item and tipping us off. Stay tuned for updates, as further developments occur!
