Early this past February we reported
that Warner had announced a May release of Nip/Tuck - The Complete 5th Season
on DVD...but before the month was over we followed up
with info from Warner Home Video that the release should not have been made public at the time it was, and that the date was definitely wrong as the studio hadn't finalized any plans yet. Apparently something went wrong, causing it to show up with early, incorrect info. Since then fans have been patiently waiting for the studio to re-announce the title.
That has finally happened this morning! Warner has now announced Season 5
for release on December 30th
, just in time to enjoy it on your time off for New Years'! The original breakdown of episodes for this 5-disc set is still accurate, as are the specs. The price is $59.98 SRP, and while we expect extras to be included, none have been mentioned so far. Also note that there is no indication of a Blu-ray Disc release; just the DVD. Package art is shown below; it's the same as before except that the subtitle is now "Season 5
" instead of The Complete 5th Season
. However, the studio notes that even this artwork is not final, and could be subject to change. They also provided this new studio description of the set:
L.A. City of Angels. Tinseltown. La-La Land. The place that's made a bundle selling glamour, illusion and dreams; the perfect place for the newly relocated plastic-surgery practice of McNamara/Troy.
It's also the place for "Lights! Camera! Scalpels!" as Sean and Christian go from consulting on a TV drama about plastic surgery, to being on-camera players (and rivals for stardom). It's the place for wavering Kimber to become porn again, for strung-out Matt to try to go straight, for Julia and Christian to rekindle a flame, for all the personal and professional entanglements that are McNamara/Troy. And it's the place for skilled surgical procedures...some silly, some heart-rendingly serious. Welcome to L.A.!
