:thumbsup:The show was renewed for a fifth season of 22 episodes. In an interview with on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Thursday, May 15, 2008, Leary revealed season 5 had been delayed until March 2009 because of the writer's strike, but that all 22 episodes would air on consecutive weeks. Joining the cast will be actor Michael J. Fox, who is set to play the part of Janet's (Andrea Roth) new love interest. According to the L.A. Weekly, on December 1, 2008 during an appearance at Book Soup in West Hollywood, Leary revealed plot details for season 5, specifically that a reinvestigation into the events leading up to and surrounding 9/11 is a major plot line in the first 10 episodes of season 5, which is currently slated to premiere in April 2009.

Was so disappointed that Sky never re-newed its contract for this. What was the last season aired on Sky ? Was it 3 ?? If yes I feel a Region 1 important coming on :D

Yes S3 was last to be aired, Season 4 finished in the US over 18 months ago, and its well worth getting imho.

I honestly can't believe Sky chose to let its best show go either, I'm even more surprised no channel has picked it up. :eek:

Has the third series been given a UK release date yet? I've gotten series one, two and an imported series 4.

With the extremely weak pound I don't feel inclined to import series 3.

Just realised I don't actually have a mulit-region player anymore anyway ! Will wait for the R2 release of S3 & 4 I think.

I just hope the US BDs are region free, not sure I can go back to watching them in SD again, having been spoilt by seeing them on Sky HD.

It's just criminal that not one UK broadcaster is showing this fantastic series:mad:

I have to agree with you there. How Sky could drop a quality show like this, to show some of the cr*p they put out in prime-time, is beyond me.

It would be so cool if FX HD picked this series up, as it would really fit in there.

In fact, I've just written to FX on their contact page, asking if there's any chance of them picking it up. http://fxuk.com/contact/

I've got Season 3 BD from the US & it plays just fine on a UK BD player

Maybe we should all write too FX and see if they can pick up the show.

If somebody on here is really clever, maybe we should set up some sort of online petition!!

I suppose other channels we could consider are CH4, CH5, Hallmark???

I'd say FiveUSA , More4 & maybe even ITV1, 2, 3 or 4 are potential homes for the show.

I'd say FiveUS would pick up the take on rescue me....same sort of programming line up they already have tbh.

It winds me up that the reason Sky dropped rescue me is because nobody was watching it and figures dwindled but then again what do they expect when they show it at 3am on weekday mornings.

Get rid of all the bloody game shows! and fit some decent comedy/drama in Sky! Sort it out.

Can someone please remind me which season it was that ended with Dennis Leary and his (one of many) girlfriends in a burning house :confused: That was the last episode I saw.

Had a hunt about and there is no sign of it being released on BlueRay. Might wait a month or so.

It's a hell of a lot cheaper if you buy it Region 1, but it's good news that they've released it finally on R2. I wonder if they'll release Season 4 on R2?

I doubt it will be on as nobody has ever shown Season 4 in the UK :(

Yes one of the problems was Rescue Me getting the 10pm slot on a sunday.
I would really want to watch this again as i loved it, and it was be a great show for FXHD, FIVEUSA or Channel 4 to pick up.
