The Complete 8th Season

The Complete 1st Season

Route 66 - What's the Delay on Route 66 DVDs? It's GOOD News, Actually!

Complete 1st Season set still coming; 2nd Season isn't scrapped either!

Posted by David Lambert
Back in mid-March we reported that Infinity Entertainment and Roxbury Entertainment were planning on May 20th releases on DVD for both Route 66 - The Complete 1st Season AND Route 66 - Season 2, Volume 1. Late last week fans of the show started writing in to us, highly concerned that online pre-orders they had placed for one or both of these were being canceled. What's going on? We talked to Infinity, and we've got the scoop on what's happening...and it turns out that it's a good thing, actually.

Along the course of putting out the first DVD packages, Infinity (and Roxbury) recognized that there was some customer dissatisfaction with the half-season sets put out for the first season, and they want to resolve this. To begin with, they are scrapping the half-season set concept at this time. As a result, Season 2, Vol. 1 is completely canceled. Instead, though, we will get a Complete Season 2 DVD package! It's currently penciled in for an October release, but that's not finalized just yet.

In the meantime, the release of The Complete Season 1 DVD set IS still coming out. But it's being pushed back to release sometime in August, in order to give the studio more time to resolve customer complaints about how episodes were presented on disc in the two half-season sets for that show. There has not been any word yet as to whether Infinity will offer any sort of "upgrade/fix" path for people who purchased the original versions and wish to get the corrected versions, but we'll let you know if we hear anything.

We'll bring you the specific new release date for Route 66 - The Complete 1st Season once it's been determined, and we'll also bring you the release date for Route 66 - The Complete 2nd Season when that's announced. Stay tuned!
