Good news for those of you who are wondering about the upcoming Firefly DVD Set release date. According to Mutant Enemy President Chris Buchanan, as of this morning, the release date of the Firefly DVD set is still December 9th and that FOX Home Entertainment does not anticipate any problems. "Trust me, [Fox Home Entertainment] wants to make sure the DVDs are available for holiday purchasers," wrote Buchanan in an email to FIREFLYFANS.NET. "It's pure American capitalism -- the more DVDs they sell, the more $$$ they make."

Originally priced at $37.49 on AMAZON.COM, the Firefly DVD Set was available for pre-order earlier this summer before fans of the TV series exhausted Amazon's allotted inventory in just a couple of days. At its peak the Firefly DVD Set held the #2 spot on Amazon's bestsellers list. "[Fox Home Entertainment] pushed [Mutant Enemy] and the cast of Firefly hard to complete production of all of the (tons of) ancillary DVD materials in time for a fall release," added Buchanan, referring to the loads of interviews and commentaries by cast members, writers, and directors--including Joss Whedon--that are on the DVDs for all episodes of Firefly, plus the three that were never aired in the US, and the hilariously funny Firefly Gag Reel.

While pre-orders are no longer accepted on AMAZON.COM, Firefly fans have been able to pre-order through other sources such as Best Buys and Barnes and Noble, but availability is sporadic at best. Please check back here on FIREFLYFANS.NET for any news of availability.

Actually it peaked at Number 1! If you don't believe me, I have screenshot somewhere that can prove it.

I believe in solving problems, not sharing them.


All I can say is, Santa better show up this year with the DVDs or I'm gonna raise hell.

(re: the last paragraph)

In-store preorder availability at Barnes & Noble is fine...we don't have much listed in our system except for the fact it's 4 discs, the UPC code, and a strict on sale date of Dec. 9th, but I put my preorder through with no problem.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Great news indeed! That will take care of about 4 people on my Xmas list.

The latest issue of DVDTalk Newsletter highlighted the Firefly DVD:

"We're jumping for joy over Fox's announcement for Firefly: The Complete Series. Set for release on December 9th Firefly: The Complete Series will be presented in anamorphic widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio, contain 15 episodes of the series including 3 which never aired and feature: Audio Commentary on at least 1/2 of the episodes, 'Here's How It Was', 'Serenity: The 10th Character' and a Tour of the Firefly set with Joss Whedon, deleted scenes, audition footage, and a gag reel. If you've never heard of Firefly then we definitely advise you to check this DVD set out, if you're already familiar with the show then you're probably as excited as we are about the DVD (and feature film now in development). Pre-Order Firefly at DVDEmpire."

Good to see that Firefly DVD is getting some publicity.
