The Walking Dead on Blu-ray and DVD

Todd Jepperson

I’ve got bad news, and good news. To make it short and sweet, here’s the bad news: The 6th and last episode of The Walking Dead: Season One will air this Sunday at 9/8c on AMC. (editor's note: I was asleep at the wheel getting this posted) Yeah, the entire first season of the series was only 6 episodes long. Not only that; but, the next season likely won’t start until Oct. 2011. You’re probably thinking, “What the hell am I going to do for the next year? Do they really expect me to wait around?” Which is where the good news comes in.

AMC and Anchor Bay Distribution are fast-tracking the DVD and Blu-ray release of the first season. We have a confirmed release date of March 8th 2011. That’s right, we really only have to wait a couple of months to snag the DVD set… or single disk, as it may be. Now the other good news, is taking pre-orders now. At $27.99 for DVD and $34.99 Blu-ray, we’re getting the season for an average of five twenty-five per episode. There will be no buyer’s remorse there. And the other, other good news? It looks like the next season will be a whole lot longer than this one and will have over a dozen episodes. See you in October.


  1. If they're rushing to get the DVD out though, does that mean that its going to suffer when it comes to DVD extras? This series could have an amazing set of extras from what I've seen of clips hear and there, and it would be such a shame if the bugger it up in the rush to get the DVD out.

    Plus on a side note, when's the region 2 coming out? lol.

  2. Great points. I'll look in to it. Watch for another post soon!
