The Real Ghostbusters Volumes Coming During 2016


A month ago Sony announced in the press release for Ghostbusters/II 4k Blu-Rays that they were re-releasing The Real Ghostbusters (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, April 4, 2016) to DVD this July.

On May 3, 2016 ghosthead Tyler J. Brooks shared on Facebook the first cover art from Amazon. Also a clue that Sony Pictures Entertainment will be releasing 5 volumes on July 5, 2016. Which would bring the total of The Real Ghostbusters episodes to 58 episodes. Which as we know isn’t the entire series.

Good news if you don’t know already own the previously released complete series from Time Life. Yesterday at HQ we found out from volumes 6-10 will be released on September 6, 2016. During the week The Real Ghostbusters premiered 30 years ago!

Well, our retail industry sources tell us that Sony is planning for MORE of these $14.95 SRP releases, starting with “Volume 6” and going on from there, hitting stores this coming September 6th, right around the back-to-school season.. Details on those are sketchy right now, but our contacts tell us to expect at LEAST a run through Volume 10 on that date, each in a similar configuration to Sony’s July 5th slate of Real Ghostbusters volumes. No word on if there are more plans beyond those.
