New World Zorro DVD Release Information

We do not have a definite date for the release of the New World Zorro DVD set, but we know it will be soon. Amazon has five listings for the DVDs which give a release date of January 11, 2011.

All four seasons
Season 1
Season 2
Season 3
Season 4

You can also read some information here about the release. Keep in mind that the artwork for the set has not been released yet, and the actual release date is not set in stone. It could still change. What is encouraging is that we know the plans for the release of this series are moving forward quickly, much quicker than is normal for DVD releases of obscure television series. This is going to happen, and soon.

Please continue to be patient and remember that one year ago, we had no chance of this series getting released on DVD. One year ago, we did not know who owned the rights, so nothing was ever going to happen. The series has been in limbo for nearly 20 years. I believe the problems were caused because the Family Channel was sold years ago, and that made it unclear who owned the rights to the series.

Zorro Productions, Inc. now owns the rights, has compiled extras for the set, has created the artwork, and has been working hard to get the series released as soon as possible. This type of release can often take several years from the early plans to the actual release. We are very fortunate that the plans have moved forward so quickly. We are almost there!

Actually 17 years, because the series was unfortunately cancelled in 1993. Just a minor correction. I'm surprised it's been 17 years. seems like forever. Thank God this wonderful family show is finally going to be released on DVD.

I am aware that it has not been exactly 20 years. That is why I stated "nearly 20 years," and I feel like 17 years is pretty close to 20 years. :)

oh. sorry about that, Jen. still, i can't believe it's been that long since this family-friendly show was unexpectedly (and I think, unfairly) cancelled. Now, you rarely have a family-friendly show on the major networks. At least, "Lois And Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman," "Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman," "Touched By An Angel" and (coming soon) the 1990-1993 series "Zorro" are on DVD. These shows, along with classics like The Three Stooges' shorts, Tom & Jerry shorts, "The Andy Griffith Show," "The Waltons," "I Love Lucy," Little House On The Prairie" and others are family-oriented shows that are are not only entertaining, but are shows you can watch without feeling offended.
