Here is some good news for Vermonters as one of our favorite comedies finally makes it was to DVD. “Newhart” the second of Bob Newhart‘s TV hits, is coming to DVD. Dick and Joann Loudon become Innkeepers in the Green Mountain state (VT), and intertwine with a cast of colorful characters along the way.
In 2008 Fox Home Video placed Season One onto DVD, but cancelled all subsequent releases. Thanks to Shout Factory however, they will be releasing Season Two just over five years later. They are taking pre-orders through Shouts’ online store, but won’t be exclusive to their site as some of their titles are. We do know the set will be three discs and they are taking prints from the original masters, not the syndicated prints.
Good news for fans of this 80′s sitcom. Shout does have rights to the remaining seasons, so depending on sales this long lost classic may finally get a release in its’ entirety.
