True Blood - HBO's Vampire Series Gets a DVD Release Date for the Spring

5-disc set should have every episode from the show's first season

Posted by David Lambert
    True Blood™ chronicles the backwoods Louisiana town of Bon Temps...where vampires have emerged from the coffin, and no longer need humans for their fix. Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin, Academy Award®-winner for "The Piano") works as a waitress at the rural bar Merlotte's. Though outwardly a typical young woman, she keeps a dangerous secret: she has the ability to hear the thoughts of others.

    Sookie's situation is further complicated when the bar gets its first vampire patron - 173-year old Bill Compton (Steven Moyer, "Quills") - and the two outsiders are immediately drawn to each other. Delivering the best of what audiences have come to expect from creator and executive producer Alan Ball (writer of Oscar®-winning Best Picture "American Beauty," creator of the Emmy® Award-winning HBO® series Six Feet Under™), True Blood™ is a dark and sexy tale that boldly delves into the heart - and the neck - of the Deep South
HBO's hot new series True Blood is coming to DVD this Spring! While the studio hasn't officially announced it via the normal channels, one of our readers (who only left the name "Nick," but we thank him nonetheless!) spotted a listing for the release at HBO's online store. It shows that a 5-DVD collection will be available on Tuesday, May 12th. Now, that's a fair distance down the road, so it could be subject to change, of course. But right now that's what they're showing!

The price given is $59.99, but that might be a discounted "retail" cost and not the actual list price. Video is listed as anamorphic widescreen, and audio in English Dolby Surround Stereo. Running time given is 720 minutes. No extras are mentioned, nor is there any cover art.

As the studio description at the top mentions, the show stars Anna Paquin (X-Men films, The Piano) and Stephen Moyer (The Starter Wife, Quills). You'll also spot Lizzy Caplan (Cloverfield, Mean Girls, The Pitts), Stephen Root (NewsRadio, King of the Hill, Tripping the Rift), William Sanderson (Newhart, Deadwood, Blade Runner), John Billingsley (Enterprise, The Nine), Michelle Forbes (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Battlestar Galactica, 24), and William Schallert (The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, The Patty Duke Show, War and Remembrance), among others.

Stay tuned and we'll keep you updated about this exciting release, just as soon as any further developments occur!
