4 August 2006:

Brad Kern about season 8 DVD extras

The plan at this point is to try to get 90 minutes of extras in for the eighth season release, which will be out around Christmas. That would include episode commentaries, hopefully bloopers, set tours. It should be a pretty extensive and elaborate extras package. That's the hope and plan right now, and I'm pushing very hard for the unaired pilot, but that has legal ramifications, and only the legal department can tell us whether or not that can happen. But I'm pushing for it because I think it's a slam dunk. The fans would love it.

Season 7 NTSC - February 2007

CBS works some magic - extras for season 8

It has been reported on TheCharmedOnes.com and TVShowsOnDVD.com - there will be extras on season 8.
While TCO claims to have achieved this with their petition, TVShowsONDVD thinks a bit more realistically though claiming some fame for "well placed phone calls" which helped in this matter.
CBS took over Paramount's TV titles earlier this year and has released featurettes and included commentaries for other shows (e.g. CSI).
