How I Met Your Mother - 'Season 8' DVD: Street Date, Cost, Extras, Small Art

Not officially announced by Fox yet, but early (possibly non-fina) info sent to retailers gives us a lot of details!

Posted by David Lambert
    In the uproarious Eighth Season of How I Met Your Mother, the arrival of baby Marvin reminds Marshall and Lily of things they need, like sleep, better jobs and sex! Meanwhile Barney uses his playbook to win over Robin, but not her scary dad. Marshall tries to right a wrong in court in hopes of becoming a judge, and Robin's past is judged. Ted designs an amazing building, and also has designs on Barney's half-sister! But does he meet his future wife? Check out all 23 hilarious, legend - wait for it - dary 23 Season 8 episodes, featuring guest stars like Paul Shaffer, Ralph Macchio and Kyle MacLachlan!
Fox Home Entertainment hasn't announced it officially to press just yet, but today we've gotten ahold of an early alert for retailers (one similar to those we've reported about already for upcoming unannounced sets of other Fox shows such as Glee, Modern Family and New Girl) Through it we've learned that How I Met Your Mother - Season 8 is currently scheduled for release on October 1st. This date, and all information to follow, is not finalized and could be subject to change. But here's what we know for now!

How I Met Your Mother - Season 8Late this past March we let you know that Amazon had begun accepting pre-order for this title, and was showing off early artwork (which is still there as of this writing). Fox's new alert to retailers for this title had a thumbnail look at the packaging, and as you can see to the right it looks VERY different from the early placeholder image. A full-sized version of the new package look isn't available yet, but stay tuned.

The $39.98 SRP list price has been confirmed, however, and the info also mentions that this will be a 3-disc set with all 23 episodes (including the double-length Christmas time episode, "The Final Page"). There's also a nice list of extras (AGAIN, this may not be finalized yet, and could be subject to change):
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Commentary on "Farhampton"
  • The Making of "P.S. I Love You"
  • "P.S. I Love You" Music Video
  • Commentary on "The Final Page"
  • Where We Make Your Mother: Set Tour with Actor Josh Radnor
  • Gag Reel
Stay tuned and we hope to bring you an official Fox press release, once everything is official for How I Met Your Mother - Season 8 on DVD!
