Grease: Rise Of The Pink Ladies is to get a second chance on DVD and digital – after the series was removed from Paramount+.
There was a certain amount of controversy last month when prequel series Grease: Rise Of The Pink Ladies was unceremoniously dumped from the Paramount+ streaming service only weeks after premiering. It triggered a discussion about the cruel realities of the streaming market and how, without physical releases, months or even years of hard work can simply vanish.
The show, a prequel to classic 1978 musical Grease, followed the titular Pink Ladies at Rydell High School, as well as their connection to self-proclaimed bad boys the T-Birds.
As a response to the public outcry and fan criticism, Paramount is releasing the show on DVD, so far only a US release date has been announced, for the 7th November, with thirty minutes of bonus features.
However, the show is now available to buy on Amazon in the UK. You can find out more details here.
