    I'm not very familiar with this show or HBO's reputation for releasing DVDs but was curious to know when the Sopranos Season Five is supposed to hit the streets.

    They tend to release one season per year of their shows; the Sopranos comes out around Christmas. If they follow their normal schedule, it should be out by Christmas.

    Christmas 2005 maybe. It seemed like prior seasons were released just prior to the following season's debut.

    Since the final season is slated to air in 2006, I wouldn't expect the penultimate season to be on DVD until sometime in 2005. Hopefully I'm wrong; S5 was excellent from start to finish.

    A year and a half seems a bit excessive. I'm sure HBO wants Sopranos Season 5 as their big holiday release.

    That doesn't make sense. Those "statistics" aren't typical, IMO, because they simply started a bit late with bringing the first season to the new format (DVD).

    Personally, I expect it somewhere around November this year.

    I distinctly remember season four coming out at the end of October last year as it was one of the first things I picked up (along with the Looney Tunes collection) after returning from holiday.

    Hopefully a similar schedule will happen for season five. I haven't seen any of the latest season and am also looking forward to it.

    I was assuming Nov 05 for exactly the reason Steve O outlines.

    Here are some dates for the sake of argument:

    Season 1

    Started: 1/10/99
    Ended: 4/4/99
    DVD Release: 12/12/00

    Season 2

    Started: 1/16/00
    Ended: 4/9/00
    DVD Release: 11/6/01

    Season 3

    Started: 3/4/01
    Ended: 5/20/01
    DVD Release: 8/27/02

    Season 4

    Started: 9/15/02
    Ended: 12/8/02
    DVD Release: 10/28/03

    Season 5:

    Started: 3/7/04
    Ended: 6/6/04
    DVD Release:


    These dates would seem to suggest that Sopranos S5 would come out about 4-6 months before S6 airs. My guess would be late August 05.

    Andrew,

    Just look at those release dates: 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003.
    The next will be 2004.

    As usual, it's just a matter of interpretation of the "statistics". [​IMG]

    Sure, but I doubt it will be released in November. HBO has already mentioned Carnivale coming December 7th, so I'm pretty sure it will come after that...otherwise it would have already been announced. I'd expect late Dec/early Jan at the earliest. I tend to agree with those that say closer to S6. That's standard HBO MO (previous seasons of Sopranos, SFU, and Carnivale for examples).

    Kinda like waiting almost two years between seasons?

    Just a guess here, but it seems to me we are at the tail-end of announcements for the remainder of this year. Some titles that are getting announced now are for January (Troy, The Notebook, etc.). I think if something as high-profile as the Sopranos was coming in 2004, we'd have heard about it now. My guess is HBO will release in late in 2005 as part of the promotion leading up to season 6.
