Well it looks like France will be getting the first two seasons of this great show. A web site had the following pict.

I really hope this means the US will get this soon.
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

Jerome, thanks for the better pictures. This really blows. The Pretender is one of my wife and I's favorite shows. I hope this is a precurser for a US release

One thing I noticed is the Universal logo on those sets while Fox must own the rights to the show over here (it was on their poll).

So I guess if Universal is doing it in Europe and Fox over here, I wouldn't read too much into a European release.

No, Universal just distributes them on the French Market. The company who owns the rights here is named "Free Dolphin". It is a independant label, which released the series on VHS a few Years ago. You can see its logo on the first pic, posted by Todd S.

According to Amazon.fr its supposed to be released on Dec 2, 2003 but you can't pre-order it. I wonder if its been delayed.
