It’s been a long time coming but it’s finally to say farewell to Nanny Fine one last time.

On Tuesday, March 15th Shout! Factory will release the sixth and final season of The Nanny.  It marks the first time that the twenty-two episode run has ever been released on DVD.  All twenty-two episodes will be presented here across three discs.  Season Six opens with Fran and Maxwell spending their honeymoon on a deserted island after the pair fell off of a yacht.  The moment tests the couple’s vows and leads to an intimate moment between the pair.  That’s just the beginning of the laughs for fans this season.  All of the bumps that every married couple experiences early on in married life are there and then some.  There is also a touching holiday story in “The Hanukkah Story” that will move audiences of any age. And in the series’ two-part finale, it turns out that Fran and Max aren’t the only ones with good news. There’s even a marriage in the cards for another member of the Scheffield family in this final season. So needless to say there are lots of laughs and lots of joyful tears to be had in this final season of The Nanny.

The Nanny: The Final Season will be released Tuesday, March 15th on DVD. It will retail for MSRP of $34.99 but can be pre-ordered at a discounted price of $29.99 now via Shout! Factory’s online store at https://www.shoutfactory.com/tv/comedy/the-nanny-the-final-season. More information on this and other titles from Shout! Factory is available online now at:

Shout! Factory To Begin Releasing The Nanny’s Standalone Season Sets Next Month

Late this spring Shout! Factory ended a long wait for fans of CBS’ modern classic sitcom The Nanny when it released the series in its entirety in the form of The Nanny: The Complete Series. For fans that might not have been lucky enough to get their hands on that set, Shout! Factory has announced that it will begin releasing the series’ standalone season sets next month beginning with the series’ fourth season.

Shout! Factory will release The Nanny: Season Four on Tuesday, September 22nd. The twenty-six-episode run includes plenty of laughs and just as many big-name guest stars including: Bette Midler, Donald Trump, Pamela Anderson, Celine Dion, Jon Stewart, Jason Alexander, and Joan Collins among many others. One of those guest stars–Jason Alexander (Seinfeld)–appears in the season premiere “The Tart With A Heart.” Alexander plays a blind man named Jack in this episode. Fran picks up Jack at a singles bar after tensions rise between herself, Mawell, and C.C. The tensions in question rise from the revelation that Maxwell in fact hired Fran only for her looks. Of course things don’t go quite as Fran planned with Jack in the long run leading to an interesting outcome between Fran and Maxwell. There’s an equally classic story line later in the season in “Kissing Cousins” in which guest star Jon Stewart (The Daily Show) plays Frans cousin. The catch is that Fran doesn’t realize that Stewart’s character is in fact her cousin. This leads to plenty of laughs thanks to a battle of the sexes of sorts between Fran and Maxwell. In “You Bette Your Life” famed singer/actress Bette Midler appears as herself when Maxwell decides to assemble a charity auction. The auction leads to Fran becoming the babysitter for a talented young 10-year old piano player. Things don’t exactly go as planned for Fran and Maxwell in this episode as the sight of an elderly person dying while he performed at a nursing home puts a multi-million dollar deal from the boy’s father in jeopardy. There are plenty more laughs for fans throughout the season’s twenty-six total episodes. And audiences will get to enjoy them for themselves when The Nanny: Season Four is released next month.  Season Four’s complete episode listing is noted below.

The Nanny ran for six seasons on CBS from 1993 – 1999.

And Angela’s son Jonathan (Danny Pintauro) was replaced by Mr. Scheffield’s children Margaret (Nicholle Tom), Brighton (Benjamin Salisbury) and Grace (Madeline Zima). Daniel Davis and Lauren Lane co-starred in supporting roles as Mr. Scheffield’s butler Niles and staffer C.C. Babcock respectively.
