The Final Season of GORTIMER debuts July 15th on Amazon Prime USA

It’s been a long wait — too long — but your patience is about to be rewarded. The epic “second half of Season 2” Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street will arrive on Amazon Prime Video in the USA on July 15th. (Amazon’s lawyers won’t let us call it “Season 3”.)

13 new episodes. One crazy street. Here’s the trailer:

Season 3 — I mean 2B — brings some surprises. Gortimer grapples with the news he might be leaving Normal Street. Mel adjusts to a life without her mother. And Ranger finally succumbs to the effects of taking on the weight of everyone else’s problems in a way you can only do on Normal Street. There are more than a few episodes in this batch that put a lump in my throat.

Check out the official announcement and first look at not-season-three of Gorimter on etonline.com.

There’s also a “bonus” retrospective trailer on the Amazon Prime Video web page-page. Check it out.


  1. I really hope this series is released on DVD/Blu-ray. It’s wonderful. I’m sorry to hear it has to end. :(

  2. My girls are sad that this series is coming to an end. Thank you for creating wholesome family entertainment that is funny and witty, with good morals without being preachy.

    • It was hard for us to say goodbye too. We’ve never shrunk from the real-life experiences of growing up on the show, and the truth is — all things must pass. Thank you for inviting us into your home, and I hope I’ll have something new to show you soon.

  3. Was the end of the series planned, or did Amazon cancel it? IMDB had a hyphen in the date, so I had no idea it was ending until it did.

    I can pretty easily discover a fault in any show, but there was none in this one. The concept was splendid, the writing was superb (as a burgeoning writer myself the writing has to be rather impressive to earn such praise from me) the actors were stupendous (I am running out of accolades) and the abject magical-ness which was interwoven into the story lines brought such a wonderful glow to each and every moral lesson (disguised as an escapade). An extra “bravo” for developing REAL female characters. Seriously. Thank you. I only wish I had had such a lovely role model as Mel when I was growing up.

    Had this show been marketed as a “regular” show (as in, not a kid show) it would have had a much wider audience. (There. I found the weakness. The show was undersold/improperly marketed) I am a 55 year old woman who very much enjoyed every single episode. I watched it from the beginning – due to the unusual name Gortimer, and at the end I kept hoping some weird plot twist would keep Gortimer on Normal Street. Wow. What a downer.

    • Thank you so much for your kind comments, Anita. I planned for the show to be three seasons and done. Three years of middle school. I didn’t want to do high school drama. That’s a whole other thing. And I was happy to end it on a high note and go out before we ran the wheels off of it.

      I never thought of the show as a kid’s show. I wrote it for the kid in all of us. I’m glad it found its way to you. Thanks for watching to the end.

    • I agree 100%. I am 60 and got far more excited to watch new episodes than my 6 yr old twin grandsons…and they begged to watch more episodes all the time. We savored them. We want a friend like Gort, as we fondly refer to him. I an rather sick that the series seems to end. I want that future we saw to be only what Gort dreamed…and let the lives of Gort and friends continue to unfold together in the town.

  4. This show is amazing I don’t want it to end. The actors are fantastic. It’s so well written. I love how it handles the tough parts of growing up so well. I want to see more of Gortimer and the gang.
