In 2006, MGM brought out The Young Riders - Season 1
on DVD, and - as we reported at the time - it was a show that was very high on the list of most-wanted programs per TVShowsOnDVD voters. However, the actual follow-through sales weren't quite what the studio wanted, and follow-up releases got put on the back burner. Now TGG has picked up the rights to the series, and we've already told you to expect a "best of" release from them next week. But now the studio is confirming to us that they will soon release season sets of this show! There are still clearance issues with the middle season of the show, so TGG can't bring you Season 2
just yet. But - as a pair of Amazon pre-order listings show
- the studio plans to put out a Season 1
re-issue soon, and a new release of Season 3
(the final season) at the same time (yes, it's unusual to skip a season like that, but it actually has been done a few times before for various reasons, like with Cagney & Lacey
). Amazon's entries for these titles unfortunately show a wrong date (of November 6th) right now; TGG informs us that it will actually be Late November
before these can hit the streets. Stay tuned for that exact street date, and package art, just as soon as they're available!
