Whatever happened to Different World season 2. It was released May of last year and then removed from Amazon, HMV, and Best buy sites. I don’t get it. When will the rest of series be released on DVD?

A Different World is one of my all-time favorite shows. I'm also really hoping we see S2+ released soon. I had hoped that when First Look acquired the rights to ADW and The Cosby Show we'd see ADW sets relatively soon after, but for whatever reason they've only put out The Cosby Show so far.

I really love this show and hope we don't have to wait much longer for the other five seasons.

It would seem now that if they are going to release it at all, it won't be until after Cosby is done.

Speaking of First Look, I also hope that they release more Fat Albert. I bought the first 2 Volumes of the original series. Then the third and final volume came out and was also quickly removed before I had the chance to buy it.

I haven't heard anything. I want the rest of the series on DVD so badly. This show is a classic and deserves unedited, high quality season sets.

I don't think the first season set was properly promoted so I'm assuming sales were not great. Even though it was a hit when it originally aired on television, ADW never really got the acclaim that it deserved. It was usually overshadowed by it's parent, the wildly uneven Cosby Show. Another problem is that the first season of ADW was . . . umm . . . not great. So perhaps this kept a lot of people from picking up the first release which in turn kept the second season from coming out when it should have.

FYI: I recently saw ADW reunion special and it was mentioned that Lisa Bonet may not have been automatically written out upon the news of her pregnancy after the first season ended. Apparently, Bill Cosby wanted to keep Lisa on the show and have Denise be pregnant on-screen while going to college. I assume the network would not approve this and/or a feasible storyline could not be written.

Exit: Denise on ADW. Re-Enter: Denise on TCS.

Also, those of you who agree that the show improved vastly after it was revamped, you have Phylicia Rashad to thank for that. After guest starring on ADW during the first season, she returned to work on TCS and promptly told Mr. Cosby of the many problems on and off screen at ADW.

O.k it has been over a year now and no news on the A Different World season 2 on DVD? What's going on?

At this point I think both Season 2 and Season 3 should be released at the same time.

At this point, I'd say sales and a decline in the TV on DVD market killed it. Maybe Shout! will pick it up at some point.

I don't think sales was a problem. Season 2 was going to be released back in 2006 http://www.amazon.co...78273643&sr=1-1

I read that Carsey-Werner productions brought back the rights from First Look (the same company who released the Cosby Show on dvd) and they were to release the rest of the series a few years back.

I've been waiting and no updates. What is Carsey-Werners contact info anyway??? It is not listed on their site.
