Sony Pictures Home Entertainment sure likes to take their time between season set releases of certain shows! After a December 2005 release of the second season, the studio has finally gotten around to announcing Party of Five - The Complete 3rd Season
for DVD! After a two-and-a-quarter year wait, fans will finally get their hands on the third season (out of six total) this March 25th
. Here's the studio description:
The third season of this pop-culture phenomenon comes to DVD! This season's filled with challenges: Kristin's parents take her home when she loses her PhD after plagiarizing; Charlie longs for the good old days until he realizes that things weren't that great; Julia feels guilty when a friend commits suicide; Claudia authorizes a $3000 plumbing repair when no one is around; and the family bands together to help Bailey confront his drinking problem. Stars Matthew Fox (TV's "Lost"), Jennifer Love Hewitt (TV's "Ghost Whisperer"), Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls), Neve Campbell (Scream 1 – 3), Scott Wolf (TV's "Everwood"), Paula Devicq (TV's "Rescue Me").
Jeremy London (who's got something like 10 different films coming out!) and Scott Grimes ("Dr. Morris" on ER
) return in their recurring roles, plus you'll also spot Marla Sokoloff, James Sloyan, Ben Browder, Ben Savage, Dan Lauria, Carroll O'Connor, Corinne Bohrer, singer Randy Newman and High School Musical
drama teacher "Mrs. Darbus," Alyson Reed.
These 25 episodes come on 5 DVDs, running 1175 minutes. No extras look to be included (unless you count previews of other Sony TV-DVD releases). Presentation will be as originally broadcast, with full-frame video and English audio. The cost for this set will be $39.95 SRP. We've got an early (and small-ish) look at the cover art, but it is not yet final and could be subject to change:
