    According to www.falconcrest.org the DVD release of season 4 will not happen next year and the ‘manufactured on demand’ discs for season 3 have now ceased in Germany completely. Disappointing news but at least the intention remains to introduce what is a very compelling season. The complete detail is in the news section of the website, under October 10th.


    Richard is now a third share holder in Falcon Crest, after successfully buying Francesca’s business interest. He is setting up an office in the winery but Angela and Chase have other ideas, (a scene from season 4, 1984 – ’85):

    Richard: “Alright men I want this desk moved right down here, over against that west wall. Then I want all these barrels outta here!”

    Angela and Chase arrive. Angela is in a temper but speaks to the workers: “Put that down!”

    Richard: “Hail, hail the gangs’ all here.”

    Chase: “What the heck are you doing?”

    Richard: “Setting up an office that’s what. It’s a little cramped in here. At first I thought I was going to have to move in with one of you but I found an old storage room.”

    Angela: “In case you’ve forgotten I have a restraining order, against you.”

    Richard: “A temporary restraining order as I recall Angela.” Richard removes an envelope the inside pocket of his jacket and hands it to Angela. “That is an order revoking your order. Judge Mitchell accepts my cheques too.”

    Angela: “I can’t wait to have you thrown out on your ear.”

    Richard laughs: “Fair enough! Oh, in the meantime I need to know which one of you wants the storage room.”

    Angela and Chase both leave the winery, not very happy.

    Richard pays the workers: “Thank you. Thank you very much!”

    Not the best news but reassuring that a 4th season DVD isn't off the horizon entirely.

    2 things I noticed:
    -*If* there is going to be a season 4 DVD, it will be released in the US first. But weren't the other DVDs first released in Europe?
    -Why did amazon offer the S3 as MOD while in fact I got the original pressed DVDs? Has anyone actually seen these DVD-Rs?

    sometime 2005 (i guess)
    IIRC, there were 1500 "normal" produced sets with normal DVDs, and the rest would have been DVD-R made on demand.
    Looks, like they didn't even sell the 1500 until lately, so .... that might be the reason why WB europe hasn't very high interests in releasing further more seasons. But i suspected that, as it just doesn't take ages to remaster season 4. Few months perhaps, but not years, as they made us believe all the time.

    The consolation in a way is that season four is still available on iTunes.
