FlashForward - 'The Complete Series', but ONLY for DVD: Extras, Box Art, Release Date and More!


No Blu-ray release announced after all, following the show's recent cancellation

This past February saw ABC/Disney's DVD release of FlashForward - Season 1, Part 1, a half-season set that came out just in time for fans who missed the first group of episodes to catch up in time for the rest of them to begin airing after a mid-season broadcast break. Shortly before that half-season set release, we reported that it would contain a coupon good for a $15 savings on an August 2010 release of what it called "FlashForward - The Complete 1st Season," saying it would come to both DVD and Blu-ray Disc formats.

Late this past Friday, ABC/Disney officially announced the follow-up release, but with some changes. Following the recent cancellation of the series, fans have campaigned for the show's return, but the studio is nevertheless moving forward with a renamed package titled "FlashForward - The Complete Series." An early look at the package art, shown below (which was clipped from an ABC/Disney sell sheet e-mailed to retailers) confirms the new title. They also have apparently decided against the high-def Blu-ray release for this item; retailers confirm that the studio is ONLY soliciting a standard DVD version at this time. No BD version is being offered, nor is it listed on the above-mentioned sell sheet. It looks like the show's low ratings have torpedoed the Blu format version, then.

The DVD of FlashForward - The Complete Series will street on August 31st, for $59.99 SRP in the USA and CA$79.99 SRP in Canada. The $15 discount appears to no longer be restricted to people who bought the earlier release; you can go to FlashForward-DVD.com right away and print off the downloadable coupon there. That coupon isn't any good until the street date, of course, but then again it must be used quickly after that, because it expires on Sept. 30, 2010!

The 5-disc set will run approx. 946 minutes, and is presented in anamorphic widescreen video with English Dolby Digital Surround Sound and subtitles in French and Spanish. Bonus materials consist of Bloopers, Deleted Scenes, "Architects of Destiny," "FlashForward on Set," "Meet Yuko," "Kangaroo?," "Interviews from the Mosaic Collective" plus "Creating Catastrophe: The Effects of a Global Blackout" and "FlashForward: A Look Ahead." All of that is taken from the retailer sell sheet we've previously mentioned.
