Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that the third and final season of fan favorite Lindsay Wagner 1970s Bionic Woman TV series will come out on DVD on October 4, 2011. It will have 5 discs covering the season’s 22 episodes, plus some bonus features, with a suggested retail price of $39.98.
“She can dive to the very bottom of the ocean, lift a massive car with one arm, hear the pins of a top-secret safe, and keep up with a pet German shepherd that can run up to 90 mph. The Bionic Woman is back and ready for her most exciting adventures yet in all 22 episodes of the third – and final – season of this groundbreaking show. American sweetheart and Primetime Emmy Award winner Lindsay Wagner is Jaime Sommers: schoolteacher, concerned Ojai resident and full-time agent for the top-secret Office of Scientific Investigations (OSI).”
“Jaime’s missions have become increasingly more dangerous and complex as she’s earned the respect of her handlers and colleagues. But with new romance on the horizon and emerging bionic technologies, will the world’s first female cyborg choose to live her life away from government interests? Find out in the epic conclusion to the iconic series, where one woman took on new abilities and became a role model for a whole generation of fans!”
Universal has also indicated that:
“THE FINAL SEASON OF THE HIT SHOW, AVAILABLE ON DVD! Starring Primetime Emmy Award winner Lindsay Wagner, this series reached #5 Most Requested Unreleased Series on TVShowsonDVD.com. All 22 episodes of this final season are available in this 5-disc DVD set. Bonus Features include Q&A with Lindsday Wagner, episode commentary about the Bionic Dog and more!”
Looks like my Fall 2011 prediction came true. Christmas comes early… in just over over a month! 🙂 No word on whether a fourth DVD set for the Bionic Woman is expected that includes the three TV movies that followed the ending of both the Six Million Dollar Man and Bionic Woman TV series.
The Bionic Woman Season 3 DVD set will go nicely with the complete Six Million Dollar Man mega DVD set from Time Life. Interestingly, the last disc case in the Time Life Six Million Dollar / Bionic Man has the three TV movies that featured both Steve Austin and Jamie Sommers that I mentioned earlier. Since Universal and Time Life have an agreement to share the respective series’ cross-over episodes, there “may” be a fourth Bionic Woman DVD set with the TV movies OR fans may have to wait until Time Life’s eventual season-by-season release of the Six Million Dollar Man DVDs (which has only released so far in one omnibus form online) capped off with the Bionic TV movies DVD package.
All-in-all good Bionic news here. Bionic Woman Season 3 will complete my collection nicely. Anyone else picking it up?
