Upcoming Spy DVDs: Mission: Impossible - The Sixth TV Season
Honestly, I was getting a little bit worried that this hadn't been announced yet! But, luckily, my fears were for naught; Paramount has announced the sixth season of Mission: Impossible for DVD release this April, following the previously established twice-yearly schedule, according to TVShowsOnDVD. It's a green cover this time, as the team is reduced to four and Linda Day George joins the cast, replacing the departing Lesley Ann Warren. Leonard Nimoy and Sam Elliot didn't return for this season, either, resulting in a pared-down IMF to take on a parade of gangsters, thieves, corrupt politicians and other domestic threats. Season Six also features notable guest stars like William Shatner (pity he missed Nimoy), Billy Dee Williams and–in a rare instance of the ITC talent pool crossing over with the American TV talent pool–The Baron himself, Steve Forrest. If the release cycle continues as it has in the past, this means that we should see the finale season of the show's original incarnation in stores this fall. And then, I really, really hope Paramount continues with the 1980s revival version!
