A little over two months from now marks the 4-year anniversary since the DVD release of the Season 1 set
for this series, and after quite a big delay it looks like fans will at last get a chance to own a DVD release of Poltergeist: The Legacy - Season 2
! This second season of the program (out of four produced) won't be in your local retail store, however: MGM has recently begun manufacture-on-demand releases that are distributed via Amazon.com (presumably using the seller's "CreateSpace" MOD program), and this is one of the studio's first two TV releases in that field.
The show's cast includes Derek de Lint (China Beach, Deadline
), Helen Shaver (The Color of Money, The Craft
), Martin Cummins (Kyle XY, Dark Angel
) and Robbi Chong (Tommy Chong's daughter). During this second season the regular cast was joined by none other than Emmy-winning actor Daniel J. Travanti (Hill Street Blues, Missing Persons
). This series, ostensibly spun off from the feature films, was created by Richard Barton Lewis (The New Outer Limits
The MOD release of Poltergeist: The Legacy - Season 2
is available to pre-order
from Amazon, but no availability date has been provided so far. Instead the listing says "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
" As with all MOD releases, this cannot be sent to an address outside of the USA (for legal reasons, so don't blame the studio), and the listing therefore carries the notice "This title cannot be shipped internationally.
Cost is $39.98 SRP for 928 minutes. No regular-style DVD box art is appearing at the listing, but since MOD releases of titles from MGM are a new thing, we're not certain yet if they are using standard retail-style packaging, or something more generic. The first MOD releases through Amazon for the studio don't ship until Dec. 15th, and consist of catalog films such as Far North, Trapeze, Rich in Love
and A Fish in the Bathtub
. Amazon's listings for these show the same generic picture design (including the individual titles on the design) as the Poltergeist: The Legacy - Season 2
listing shows...so perhaps that IS what the package will look like. If we find out differently, or anything further about this release, we'll certainly let you know! We'll also update you when we find out what the specific ship date will be for this title, so stay tuned.
