Two weeks ago we had the scoop
that Burn Notice - Season 2
is coming to DVD on June 16th
, at a cost of $49.98 SRP, and CA$69.98 SRP in Canada (and available to pre-order from Amazon.com
at a discount). Today Fox Home Entertainment has formally announced the title to all retailers, and surprised us in the process: even though the first season set only came out in the DVD format, Burn Notice - Season 2
will also have a day-and-date release on high defintion Blu-ray Disc release!
Both the DVD and BD versions will run 682 minutes (corrected from "690" in the previous report). While the DVD is a 4-disc set, the Blu version will come on 3 discs, with a list price of $59.99 SRP in the USA, and CA$69.99 SRP in Canada. Video on the BD format release will be 1080p widescreen, and sound is 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio.
Bonus material is not finalized yet, but will tentatively include Audio Commentary on selected episodes, a Gag Reel, Deleted Scenes, a possible Behind-the-Scenes Featurette, and perhaps even an Easter Egg. These general categories of extras apply to both the DVD and Blu-ray versions, but the specific amount of supplemental content for each version could still be different (i.e., there might be commentaries or deleted scenes on the Blu-ray that aren't found on the DVD). Fox will probably alert us to the final list of extras when they issue their press release.
Blu-ray package art isn't ready yet, but we've got a look at the package art for the DVD version for you to check out:
