One of our readers, Chuck Snitchler ("@chuck197038"), tweeted us a little while ago with an alert about Rookie Blue - The Complete 2nd Season
, on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. Chuck's described in one place as "the most passionate fan" of the show, so we're glad and grateful to hear from him. He's pointed us to two different Twitter posts, tweeting about release dates for the sophomore season of the show. The first tweet
was from yesterday, by eOne Entertainment:
Hey #RookieBlue Fans! Check out ROOKIE BLUE:THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON starring #MissyPeregrym & #GregorySmith. Buy on DVD & Blu-Ray 5/8!
So that gives a May 8th
release date, from the studio which is putting out the title. However, we've got conflicting information tweeted by Jamie Steinberg ("@NotYerAvgChick "), whose Twitter profile shows her as the Managing Editor of Starry Constellation
magazine. Her tweet
from a little while ago today says this:
ROOKIE BLUE FANS BREAKING NEWS: I heard OFFICIALLY through ABC #RookieBlue Season 2 is currently scheduled for home video release on May 22
Jamie makes it clear
that the person she spoke with checked with Canadian distribution about this. However, since we had different information tweeted in the last 24 hours by the show's production and home video studio themselves, we wanted to find out from them why there was a difference.
Our site's webmaster, Gord Lacey, just got off the phone with eOne's Toronto offices, and they confirm that May 8th
is the new street date for Rookie Blue - The Complete 2nd Season
on both DVD and Blu-ray Disc. The 22nd, we're told, was from an old schedule, but they were able to bump the title up a couple of weeks. Nice! The official announcement - with pricing, details and package art - isn't finalized yet. Stay tuned, however, and we'll bring you all of that just as soon as eOne makes it available.
Our thanks again to Chuck, Jaime, and the folks at eOne who helped us with this story!
