Back in early July we were very pleased to pass along word
from the Warner Archive's page on Facebook, where they told a fan that, "The wait will soon be over for PERFECT STRANGERS. We will be releasing the rest of the series on DVD, with a formal announcement soon to come.
" It was great news, and fans are extremely happy.
But now that four months have gone by, we don't blame fans for getting restless and wondering about that formal announcement. Yesterday one reader, "Marissa," asked on Twitter about it, addressing the question both to us @TVShowsOnDVD and also to @WarnerArchive: "any ideas on when there will be more updates on the release of the Complete Series of Perfect Strangers???
" Warner shortly responded, "Not yet. But stay tuned. We're working on it.
That's great to know, and we wanted to make sure that all of our readers (including those who don't tweet!) heard about those reassurances from the Warner Archive that more Perfect Strangers DVDs are still in the works. We also wanted to address a small bit of confusion which apparently arose from the social media exchange yesterday between Marissa and the Warner Archive.
Marissa's question asked about "the Complete Series of Perfect Strangers," and Warner's positive response has left some fans feeling certain that the reply tweet was meant to "confirm" that the item being developed is "Perfect Strangers - The Complete Series." We here at TSoD were not so sure about that, however, since Warner Archives rarely (if ever) releases a "complete series" set of a TV show...certainly not one that ran for 8 seasons, like this one!
We've therefore reached out to the Warner Archive Collection, and asked what their configuration plans were for Perfect Strangers: continued season sets, or an actual "complete series" package. The swift reply we got has verified that our instincts were correct. They told us, "We are not releasing one [set] of the complete series. We will be releasing each season separately, as we always do."
So that's their plans! In the meantime we plan to sit back, relax, and enjoy all over again our 2008 release of The Complete 1st & 2nd Seasons on DVD, while we wait for the Warner Archive Collection to officially announce an MOD (manufacture on demand) release for Perfect Strangers - The Complete 3rd Season on DVD...with the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th seasons planned to follow afterward, each individually. Stay tuned, and we'll update you more, as further developments occur!
