    In conjunction with the Season 1 thread located here:

    La Femme Nikita Season 1 DVD

    It appears we will get a season 2 near July 04. Old news probably to people who frequent the tvshowsondvd site. Worth an annoucement here though.



    Side Note: Thank you David

    This is wonderful news. Both my wife and I are big fans of this series and have been looking forward to additional seasons being released.

    Gord is the one who gets the skinny on LFN. If he tells me to post some news, I post. [​IMG]

    I was considering checking out this series myself... sounds like a show I may like... but the price is kinda up there to make a blind buy.

    I like shows such as Alias & 24... then also stuff like Smallville, Buffy, Angel, Dark Angel and so on... I see this set is like $75 at deepdiscountdvd.com... should I give it a chance?

    Pete, I just purchased LFN S1 and the West Wing S1 from Columbia House. They have a deal going right now where you buy two TV sets for $9.95 total, then you have to buy four DVDs over the next two years.

    Neither of these are sets I would have purchased normally even though both held some interest for me because of the buzz surrounding them. But with the Columbia House deal, I decided to go for it.

    Guess my point is that if you have any interest at all, CH might be the way to go. I really don't see how this is not a good deal, even if you don't like the show. You can always sell LFN on E-BAy for about $45 if you don't like it -- which would finance a couple of those later fulfillment DVDs.

    Just to let you know, I'm three eps into the West Wing and I really like it thus far. I'll get to LFN later.

    Thanks for the info Scott... I don't get along to good with columbia house myself. West Wing is another show I was considering getting into. I heard allot of good things about it.

    Digital bits is reporting lfn season 2 has been cancelled until further notice. This was one set that I had really been looking forward to buying. It's already been one year since season 1 was released so hopefully whatever the problem will be resolved shortly. Very disappointing.

    Ugh, I started watching this show, on the cable channel Oxygen last year, and quickly got hooked on it, but with only 3 or 4 episodes left on season 1, they replaced it with extra showings of Xena, Oxygen claimed they would be bringing the show back at some point, but they waited several months and then only ran a few episodes before the show vanished yet again [​IMG]

    I recently picked up, the DVD set for Season 1 and placed a pre-order for Season 2, thinking I would have it to start watching once I was done with the first set. This really really sucks!

    If it's been canceled, Warner sure is doing a poor job to contain it. A new press release announcing the title went out just a few weeks ago, and review copies have been sent out. I got mine last week--final product--and my wife is already on Disc 3.

    It's still listed on the Warner press site as a July 20 release. Nothing is there about its being canceled.

    If this is truly canceled, it looks like it's going to be another Ed Wood, because retailers already have stock.

    Tons of copies here in NYC if it really is cancelled I should buy it BUT I've never seen it and it is expensive. Still I could probably re-sell it for profit.

    Actually, it depends on how you look it up, Randy. One example: Just search (using the field at the top) on the word "Nikita", and you'll only get results for S1 and the S1/S2 combo. S2 by itself is missing. I presume the combo will also be recalled, but they overlooked trying to remove that entry. If you go into the combo's entry, then the link to S1 is active, but even though the S2 individual title is mentioned, they've removed the hyperlink to the S2 individual listing.

    I've got calls and e-mails in to Warner and I'm trying to get the info. Trouble is, most folk are probably at the VSDA show (which is where Gord is).

    In the meantime, I'm getting lots of e-mails from readers who say "it's not cancelled, I saw it in a store". I have to explain to them about street-date breaking.

    At the time I posted last night, I double-checked Nikita S2 at the Warner site. It was indeed missing if you did a general search, but all links to it from the other entries, S1 and the combo, were still active, as were all press releases and materials.

    Between then and when you checked, they removed all links, as you found, David. So something obviously is up.

    But, again, they're doing a really poor job of containing this, especially since the removal of the links has not been accompanied (so far) by a note that the set has been canceled. Why not just have a page explaining that the title has been delayed if one searches for it on the site?

    This set will be available widely. Profiteers and fans alike will be competing for those copies that are mistakenly put out.

    GRRR! RIP Nikita. Well given how much of struggle getting S2 out was I guess it does not matter much . What would one more season bring when was 3 more that would never happen. The sales for S2 would have had to be incredible. I dont know why was plagued with hardship though its good show, shame.

    I'm assuming this didn't have anything to do with finances or sales of season 1 as the money was already spent. To recall them at this point, it would have had to be a copyright problem or a huge mastering error.
