| June 30, 2006 - "Gargoyles" creator Greg Weisman has posted in his blog that no Season 2, Volume 2 DVD release is scheduled for the cult mid-'90s cartoon. The simple reason: last December's three-disc Season 2, Volume 1 DVD did not sell enough copies to make more sets worth Disney's while. As is always the case, the decision is not final, so if you've been planning to buy "Gargoyles" but have been putting it off, you may want to pick up S2V1 and 2004's Season 1 set. As Weisman bluntly puts it, "The ONLY remedy is to find a way to sell more.... SPREAD THE WORD!!!" |
Very sad, I bought both of these (S1 and S2v1) as soon as they released; this was truly a great show in my opinion, and the DVDs were affordably priced too. I hope they end up cranking out the final volume (I am not counting the much less entertaining Goliath Chronicles) at some point for us diehards to pick it up, or make it available somehow for order. It is not like a network discontinuing a series which sold poorly in seasons 1-3 like Boy Meets World, rather than spending years finishing out another 5, 6 or 7 seasons at a loss to the company. One more volume, Disney/Buena Vista!! One more!
For those of you who are not Gargoyles fans, this Greg guy was the creator and mind behind the series, he had a great vision for years worth of further material, and he continues (for no profit that I'm aware of) maintaining a fansite where he answers fans questions about the show (some are really dumb questions too). It's not just a case of some guy trying to rake in some more cash for himself, in other words.
I maintain hope for season 2 volume 2!
