Knight Rider Returning to DVD From Mill Creek

It’s been ten years since Universal Home Video released Knight Rider on DVD, first as individual season boxed sets, then as a Complete Series package. Now Mill Creek Entertainment is reissuing Knight Rider Seasons 1 and 2 on May 3rd. Both full-season sets are $14.98 SRP, with the episodes spread across 4 discs.

With the episodes newly remastered in high definition, can a Blu-Ray release be far behind? Mill Creek have licensed a clutch of other classic shows from Universal including Airwolf, Miami Vice, Quantum Leap, Sliders and The Rockford Files – with Airwolf getting a Blu-Ray release on the same day. Knight Rider on an HD format may not be too far away, especially after a Blu-Ray set has already hit the shelves in Japan (albeit with mixed reviews).
