Bones - Season 5 Date, Details and Bonus Material on DVD and Blu-ray *UPDATED*

Coming from Fox in both formats at the beginning of October

Posted by David Lambert
Several weeks ago we reported that Amazon was taking advance orders for Bones - Season 5 on both standard DVD and high-def Blu-ray Disc formats. At the time a street date wasn't available, because Fox Home Entertainment had not formally scheduled the title yet. Today, however, the studio told retailers to expect the release to ship in both versions on October 5th.

Running 997 minutes long, the DVD release comes on 6 discs at $59.98 SRP in the USA and CA$89.98 SRP in Canada. Video is widescreen, audio is in English 5.1 Dolby Digital, and subtitles are on board in English, French and Spanish. The Blu-ray version comes on 4 discs at $69.99 SRP in the USA, and CA$89.99 SRP in Canada. It sports high-definition widescreen video, English 5.1 Dolby Digital audio and subtitles in English, French and Spanish.

Bonus material on both versions includes Episode Commentaries: one will be found on "The Proof in the Pudding" with Tamara Taylor, TJ Thyne, John Francis Daley and Michael Conlin; another will be found on "The Beginning in the End" with Hart Hanson, Stephen Nathan and Ian Toynton. There are Extended Versions of the episodes "The Tough Man in the Tender Chicken" and "The X in the Files." There's also a Gag Reel, and Featurettes like "David Boreanaz: Directing the 100th Episode" and "The Nunchuck Way." The DVD list of contents mentions a Featurette titled "House of 100 Corpses," while the Blu-ray list mentions a Featurette titled "The Bodies of Bones"; we suspect these are the same item waiting on a final decision on which title will be used. The Blu-ray Disc release also includes Deleted Scenes, which isn't mentioned on the DVD contents.

UPDATE: A contact at Fox has been in touch with us, to clear up about the "House of 100 Corpses" Featurette and the "Bodies of Bones" Featurette. To quote them exactly, we were told, "the 100 Corpses should be a featurette on the 100th episode. 'The Bodies of Bones' is a separate featurette." We appreciate the clarification!

Here's a slightly bigger/sharper look at the package art than what we've previously shown you:
