    I hope Shout! resumes releases on this one. I wonder where the license deals stand with Shout these days.

    Videoeta.com has a listing for Season 4 but it hasn't been updated in quite some time, so who knows what's going on with that show and its future DVD releases.

    And as of today (2/15/2014), it's still listed on the website without a release date and i did hear Shout now has the rights to the series, so maybe SHOUT would have an idea as to when it will come out.

    Just can't figure out why VideoETA.com still has that specific listing on their site. I asked them about it but haven't heard back from them as of this writing.

    I was hoping that we would hear information if S4 was going to be released for Fantasy Island. Fantasy Island is one of my all-time favourite shows!!

    I'd love for it to continue.

    I'm kind of picky when it comes to this show though. I feel I have to watch it alongside 'The Love Boat', and with that title stalled as well I guess I just don't care much anymore. If both titles are back on the menu, then I'd buy them on the first day they're available for pre-order

    There are a ton of episodes of Love Boat up on Youtube, but nothing new to report on Fantasy Island Season 4 coming out on DVD.

    I really wish that they would release the original tv films that preceded the series.

    The two telefilms really got my interest in seeing this as a series. And while I watched and enjoyed the series, I missed some of the harder edge in the series that was present on the films.

    I would gladly take a seperate release of the two movies followed by a release of the second SERIES of FI, which was a darker, edgier version of the concept, which I think really was closer to the tone of the original movies.

    I was taking my son to work yesterday and he noticed a plane. I responded with "da plane, boss, da plane!" He didn't catch the reference! Lol

    Ron, I feel your pain, lol! I have similar issues with my significant other as she is 10 years younger than me as such does not have the same interest in classic TV. I tried introducing my gal to Charlie's Angels, but she just shrug it off as clothes look so 70s or look at the hair styles or just other areas.

    Fantasy Island always will have a place in my heart as it was a show that I remember growing up as kid as it was show saturday night at 10PM. I agree with an earlier post that Love Boat and Fantasy Island go and hand together as they were shown back to back in the 1970s and early 1980s.

    Saturday nights were Hee Haw, Fantasy Island and Love Boat here. You never knew who would show up as guest stars either. He told me it sounded like a stupid show but I figure if he would actually watch it (I haven't watched it in years either) he'd like it.

    It would be nice to see S4 of Fantasy Island come out in 2015. I am sentimental to Fantasy Island as it was one of my favorites growing up during the 1970s and the 1980s!

    Loving Fantasy Island every Sunday night on Cozi.
    Last week, they actually showed a season 5 episode. The one called "The Devil and Mr. Roarke" with Roddy McDowell reprising his role as Satan, and Wendy Schall as Roarke's niece.
    The print looked pretty bad, though, so that probably means seasons 5-7 haven't been remastered like seasons 1-4
