When the final season of Dynasty arrived on DVD last year, fans immediately asked about the fate of The Colbys. This was the spin-off series about other really rich people that aired as a primetime soap opera. The show didn’t quite gain the traction as Dynasty. It only lasted two seasons even with the triple threat of Charlton Heston (Planet of the Apes), Ricardo Montalban (Fantasy Island) and Barbara Stanwyck (The Big Valley). Fans of series won’t have to wait too much longer for their dream since The Colbys: The Complete Series has the entire spin-off sage in one boxset when it arrives May 12. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory:
