Fantasy Island - 'The 2nd Season', Already Out by Shout!, will be Available from Sony MOD, Too!

6-DVD set will be released this September through the studio's online manufacture-on-demand sellers

Posted by David Lambert
Back in early May, Shout! Factory released Fantasy Island - The 2nd Season on DVD, which they had licensed from Sony (who put out the first season set of the show back in 2005). Now Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will be taking this '70s classic, starring Ricardo Montalban and Herve Villechaize, and also releasing the second season set themselves on September 4th, but as a manufacture-on-demand (MOD) release only available from online sellers, and not in stores.

It might seem a bit strange that they would kind-of compete with themselves this way (after all, they get money from the licensed product they dealt to Shout! Factory), but in the end it looks like it will be the identical 6-DVD package, available from additional sources, and that's always a win for fans. We're not sure if the packaging or pricing will be different yet (probably not, but we're just guessing at this point). Stay tuned and we'll follow up when we find out anything further!
