    Season one was released by Warner Archive MOD in February 2017. Nothing since. WA had stated that season 2 would come and it hasn’t which has me worried that the hold up may have something to do with a lawsuit regarding music rights involving Earl Hagens estate. Am I right?

    I'd say it more likely is due to lack of interest on their part, and/or poor sales. I'm one of the few (I would guess) Andy Griffith fans that actually likes RFD, so I'm right there with you. I wish they'd complete it. Time Life's "Mayberry Collection" set recently included some episodes of Mayberry RFD in that set, including a few of the Season 2/3 episodes. I wouldn't have thought they would have been able to do that if it was a music dispute. Fortunately a year or so ago when the series ran on Decades during one of their "Binge" weekends I was able to have someone record the whole thing. It isn't perfect, but the quality is better than the old TV Land/MeTV sets floating around. It'll do until something better comes along.

    Wasn't Season 1 of Mayberry RFD a retail release first , then a Warner Archive MOD? If so , maybe most of the potential audience bought it in stores , and that's why there wasn't a big demand for the MOD.I have that release,but I'm not sure about where I purchased it , but count me in among those who would buy the rest of the seasons . Always nice to escape to Mayberry , even without Andy and Barney .

    The word was the retail release was "discontinued" due to poor sales, and then they brought it back as MOD. Why they didn't just do Seasons 2 & 3 then is beyond me too!

    Warner Archive typically has series releases within 6-9 months of each other. They originally said sales were high. I guess I got too excited when Perfect Strangers was completed. I thought since that was done after being dormant for 10 years, everything else for Mayberry RFD would come easily
