No sooner did the last 2015 episode of Fear The Walking Dead air than Anchor Bay Entertainment announced the DVD and Blu-Ray set for the season. The package is due December 1, and will contain all six episodes as well as bonuses. There’s no sign of a “special edition” with a Walker figure, but in this case I wouldn’t expect it. Or at least, I would expect a Running Pantsless Nick figure instead.
That’s not all. They’ve also released more than one of the bonus features onto YouTube already. Why buy it then, you ask? ….Good question.
For everything you might want to know and some things you didn’t, check out Anchor Bay’s press release below.
Anchor Bay Entertainment is bringing fans of the latest ingenious and pulse-pounding AMC original series, “Fear the Walking Dead: The Complete First Season” to Blu-ray and DVD on December 1st. Created by Robert Kirkman (“The Walking Dead”) and Dave Erickson (“Sons of Anarchy”), the series hailed as “effortlessly creepy” (People) premiered in August as the #1 show in cable history.
The 2-disc sets include character bios as well as “A Look at the Series.” Both fans of the show, as well as those who have yet to encounter the engrossing drama, will have the opportunity to own all six episodes.
Living in the same universe as “The Walking Dead,” “Fear the Walking Dead” is a gritty drama that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. Set in Los Angeles, a city where people come to escape, shield secrets, and bury their pasts, a mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt what little stability high school guidance counselor Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and English teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) have managed to assemble. The everyday pressure of blending two families while dealing with resentful, escapist, and strung out children takes a back seat when society begins to break down. A forced evolution, a necessary survival of the fittest takes hold, and the dysfunctional family must either reinvent themselves or embrace their darker histories.
Fans can also look forward to “Fear the Walking Dead: The Complete First Season” Special Edition in 2016.
“Fear the Walking Dead: The Complete First Season” cast also includes Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince), Mercedes Mason (Quarantine 2), Ruben Blades (Safe House), Alycia Debnam-Carey (The Devil’s Hand), Elizabeth Rodriguez (“Orange Is the New Black”) and Lorenzo James Henrie (Star Trek).
“Fear The Walking Dead” Season 2 premieres on AMC with 15 new episodes in 2016.
