Last week we reported
that Amazon.com had updated their pre-order listings for Lie to Me - Season 1
and Blu-ray Disc
, showing a release date for the first time. The date provided for both versions was August 11th, but you may recall in that report we mentioned that the studio hadn't actually announced the title yet. This morning Fox Home Entertainment has formally put the release on the schedule they provide to all retailers. The information given there is that the actual street date for Lie to Me - Season 1
will be August 25th
. Amazon is, at the time of this writing, still showing the 11th...but we would expect them to update it soon.
