So, season 3 is out soon but there is the possibilty that there have been commentaries recorded for season 4 already.

Anyone care to speculate when it will be released? My guess, January 2004.

Well, lets see:

Season 1 - EU: January 2002 US: March 2003
Season 2 - EU: November 2002 US: September 2003
Season 3 - EU: June 2003 US: ??
Season 4 - EU: ?? US: ??

Given that they seem to be speeding up the releases (to 2 sets per year), and that the EU date for Season Two was pushed back from September (which I think is probably less likely to happen with the US), I would concur with your assessment of a January 2004 release. If you add in a small amount of leeway, I think it'll probably hit shelves in March next year. Of course, this is all relative to whether:

a) FOX gets all the episodes shown
b) If they don't, whether they allow them to be put onto DVD - this might be a problem though, because if FOX doesn't air the eps and Sky can't proceed past them, then Sky won't be very happy to see them go straight to DVD.

I agree that around January to March 2004 seems a safe bet for the Season 4 DVD's. There are other technicalitys, but if those can be overcome then it should be cool  cool

Hopefully they'll go all out on the extras and have Easter egg pictures of all the Futurama merchandise, and some sort of video of them talking and looking back on the classic sci-fi cancelled before it's time, and stuff like that  smile

I hope they'll include a series of interviews with the voice cast, with their opinions and thoughts on the characters they did.

And I really hope Katey Sagal made at least 1 audio commentary. Can they even make the "Leela's Homeworld" commentary without Katey?

And wouldn't it be cool, if Matt recorded a small message to us fans? Maybe just to thank for the petition, and support for the show?

Just throwing out ideas.

Also maybe Cohen or someone might give ideas on what might have been done in future episodes if the series was allowed to continue.  Yeah, I expect Season 4 to be released during the first quarter of 2004 granted FOX airs the episodes during the summer.

I would give my right arm to hear Matt say "FOX are a load of bastards" right at the end of the "Devil's Hands..." commentary.  big grin

In some other topic it had Matt saying something about the petition in the season 4 DVD. I think it will be released in the UK in early 2004.

No offence, but your credibility regarding release dates are kinda nonexistent.

The dates for U.S. dates as far to late for me.  Living in the U.S., I am really considering a all-region dvd playback device attachment or disc to play ones from the U.K.

Welcome, The Knux Bender. I think the US has suffer from FOX's decision to hold back the DVD sets until they had sold the series into syndication...
But the R1 Sets seem to have the same content like the R2 Sets.

True.  However, I still think it sucks.  If I wait, It will be this time next year before I get it.  No fair.  The UK has Sky showing Futurama in a good time slot.  And I don't have CN.  And Season 4 sets seem forever from now.

"Knux" is a term a few friends and I have for me.  Knux is in reference to Knuckles from the STH series.  And I wanted Bender in my Futurama idenity so I added it.

Sorry to disappoint you, Lee, but I'm probably not who you're thinking of. Futufan and payndz are usually the top dogs at finding out this sort of thing, as they both work (or know of someone, for all I know) in the industry. Me, I'm just a university student with too much time on his hands and an itchy index finger  wink.

Yeah, yeah, enough of your wild excuses. Spill the beans on the season 4 DVD.

Lee said you know all the juicy details. And I trust Lee on everything DVD related.   tongue

Hmm. Do you think we should start torturing futufan for some Easter Egg spoilers a little earlier this time?  laff

Season 4 will be the last won't it, seeing as its production seasons. Good  suppose as we only have to buy 1 more instead of two and this will have a lot rather than splitting it. I expect it'll be out late 2003.
