Taxi – JUST in Time for Christmas: The 5th and Final Season Drives onto DVD
Fans have had to endure a four-year wait since the third season came to DVD, but tomorrow – September 22nd – sees the long awaited release of Taxi – The 4th Season. It made everybody wonder how long the studio would take before coming out with the 5th and last year of the classic sitcom, but CBS/Paramount isn’t going to make it a long wait at all. They’ve flagged down a December 22nd street date for Taxi – The Final Season on DVD!
With a running time of 571 minutes long, it seems like the set will include all 23 episodes, including the double-length “clip show” from mid-season called “A Taxi Celebration”. Guest stars include Marcia Wallace, Ricardo Montalban, Dick Sargent, Vincent Schiavelli, Rhea Perlman, Penny Marshall, Keenan Wynn, “Judo” Gene LeBell, ring announcer Jimmy Lennon Sr., and musician/actor Scatman Crothers, among others.
On the same release date, CBS/Paramount will also release a “complete series” bundle which takes all five seasons and shrink-wraps them together into a “brick” with no special pricing or packaging, just as a convenient way to pick up everything at once (they’ll probably make a fancier complete set down the line). No further details for Taxi – The Final Season are available just yet, nor do we have package art. But stay tuned and we’ll update you just as soon as we can!
