The abscence of MTV's cult hit Daria's from the DVD market frustrated fans during the eight years it's has been off the air, but the show is finally getting its due in 2010.

Much like another beloved MTV cult hit The State, Daria‘s absence from the DVD market frustrated fans for the eight years the show has been off the air. Fans mobilized an online petition movement and soon became one of most wanted shows on the site tvshowsondvd.com. Rumor had it that music rights complicated Daria‘s release. The show never really had an original score and used pop songs instead. VHS releases replaced or even completely removed the music in some episodes.


But the long awaited DVD release ofThe State last year was a huge victory for cult television enthusiasts, and a teaser trailer revealed that the impossible was indeed possible: Daria is finally getting its due in 2010.


The show will be released in complete series form, including it’s two straight-to-television movies, Is It Fall Yet? and Is It College Yet?. Although the exact date is yet to be confirmed, you can sign up to be notified of the release date on amazon. Some episodes will differ from the ones originally aired, however, because of the aforementioned music rights complications.
