Survivor - 'Season 19: Samoa' DVD Set is In-the-Works!

6-disc MOD release, full of extras, is being planned by CBS DVD

Posted by David Lambert
    The nineteenth season features 20 castaways, including one of the all-time biggest villains. A tranquil backdrop of sandy white beaches, lush green valleys, and towering waterfalls disguise a deceptively difficult locale. The rain is so strong, it strands a tribe inside their shelter before tribal council, throwing strategies out the window. Surviving in Samoa drives the most unexpected castaway to kill a rat to provide food for her tribe-but not without apologizing to her rodent victim.

    In a nod to Samoan culture, each tribe must elect a chief - their sole decision-maker - but based only on first impressions. Trying to live up to the mantle of leader, one chief pushes to his breaking point, collapsing in the middle of a challenge. This scary medical emergency stops the challenge, leaving it unfinished-a Survivor first.

    Later, a group of underdogs work to change their fate, only to have their efforts threatened when a new, 11th hour underdog emerges. Who can make it to the end and, most importantly, win over the jury for the million dollar prize? Watch it all unfold on DVD.
With Season 17: Gabon - Earth's Last Eden and Season 18: Tocantins - The Brazilian Highlands both recently released on DVD, and with Season 20: Heroes vs. Villians being available on DVD since early 2011, there's a bit of a gap in the middle of those seasons for the popular reality show. Now, with the 29th season (San Juan del Sur) currently airing, CBS Home Entertainment is working on an MOD release for the missing season (or cycle, or contest...whichever term you prefer) .

Amazon's CreateSpace manufacture on demand program has begun accepting pre-orders for Survivor - Season 19: Samoa on DVD. Priced at $34.95, the e-tailer's listing describes it as a 6-disc set that includes all the episodes, the reunion, and this list of bonus material:
Our thanks to reader Francine Benoit Boileau for the heads-up about this item! Package art isn't available yet, but stay tuned. When will this set be available? A release date hasn't been finalized yet; Amazon's listing merely says, "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives." But stay tuned for that, too, and we'll update you as soon as we know about it's availability.
