Just wondering if their has been any news/rumors regarding a season 2 release of the original and season sets of the new series?
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

I haven't heard anything, but surely something will be happening by Q3.

I'm looking forward to season 2, I imported season 1 from America for £29.99, and that's about 27 hours worth of classic sci-fi, pretty good price I thought Posted Image I'm not very interested in the new series of the Outer Limitd though, I didn't like it much.

My guess is August 03 when they release the next batch of Midnite movies.

When I posted about this in Studio Feedback, one respondent made a good point: Note that the box for the first season features the words "Volume One." Where there's a Volume One surely a Volume Two must be in the offing.

Well yes it confirms that a volume 2 is planned, but if sales were poor they may not go through with it. I honestly have no lcue how well it sold, but I think volume 2 is quite likely.

Relax, guys. Didn't MGM take a year (or more) to release Stargate SG-1 season 2 after season 1's release? They may take a similar length of time to release TOL S2. That would put the release somewhere in Q3 '03, I believe. i also am awaiting S2's release and expect it to be released, just not so soon.

One would think so. But when I interviewed an MGM exec on the occasion of the first release, she absolutely refused to say whether a second volume would come out. When I pointed out that the "Volume 1" label indicated that at least one more would be coming, she simply reiterated that comment.

I thoroughly enjoyed some episodes of the new outer limits, I would love to see some news myself.

I think I remember reading somewhere (Video Watchdog? I dunno) that MGM was pleasantly surprised by the sales on this and thus a volume 2 is very likely. No idea when, though. I'd rather they take the time to do it right. I still haven't made it all the way through box 1 in any event. Posted Image

It could be argued that Volume One wasn't "done right," though. Despite the soft picture and dreadful sound, however, this is one of the most-cherished sets in my library. What a joy to see some of these episodes again after far too long a time (a few I haven't seen since the '60s).

And to think: The very best Outer Limits episode of them all, the Harlan Ellison-scripted "Demon with a Glass Hand," would be in a second volume. MGM needs to release the entire series.

After reading the great news of the August MGM horror releases on another thread, i thought i would inquire of any further information of THE OUTER LIMITS (older show)....most of releases already listed are a definite purchase...and the final season of LIMITS would be extra candy in the treat bag...
thanks MGM
