Universal Studios Home Entertainment has informed retailers today that Law & Order: Criminal Intent - The 5th Year will be coming to DVD on May 18th. The 2005-2006 season of the show, which aired 22 episodes on NBC, will arrive home a couple of months after the ninth season debuts on the USA Network.
Chris Noth and Annabella Sciorra joined the cast during this season. It's no surprise, of course, that Fred Dalton Thompson was around. Guest stars during the fifth season included Olivia d'Abo (returning as "Nicole Wallace"), Colm Meaney, Samantha Mathis, Brad Renfro, Elizabeth Reaser, Alice Krige, Whoopi Goldberg, Glynnis O'Connor and Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss. At the end of the season several cast members exited, including Courtney B. Vance (now seen on FlashForward).
Video on this 5-DVD set will be presented in anamorphic widescreen, and audio will be in English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround. English subtitles are also included. The cost is $59.98 SRP. Package art isn't available yet, but stay tuned and we'll bring that to you just as soon as we can!
