MST3K forum user slapdawg recently noticed an interesting little post by an employee of Shout! Factory, on the Shout! Factory community forums. While folks were discussing the possibility of the release of some (or all) of the infamous season seven, Shout! employee Brian Ward made this cryptic statement:
Funny you should mention that…
Now, that comment was posted after Laserblast was mentioned, but Brian went on to say that it wasn’t necessarily a confirmation of Laserblast. However, one message is clear: Season seven is probably finally a-comin’. He also went on to reveal that the sets will apparently still consist of four DVDs, three of the four episodes from the first set have been finalized, and that sets consisting of entire seasons are basically impossible.
Mr. Ward, if you’re out there, I’d love to have you hanging around the blog. I’ve got Rifftrax contacts, a Cinematic Titanic contact — how’s about a little Film Crew/MST3K love, Brian? Also, while you’re at it, please release Deathstalker. Thanks!
