True Blood - HBO Officially Announces 'The Complete 5th Season for DVD, Blu-ray


Late May release for the latest series with Sookie Stackhouse

    Returning for its fifth season, True Blood is HBO's sexy, scary, wildly entertaining drama series from Oscar- and Emmy-winner Alan Ball (Six Feet Under). and based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. In addition to returning cast favorites - human/faerie waitress Sookie Stackhouse, her vampire suitors Bill Compton and Eric Northman, soul-searching pal Tara, shape-shifting boss Sam, rakish brother Jason, clairvoyant Lafayette and teen-vamp Jessica - Season 5 introduces a whole new wave of otherworldly characters.

    There's Vampire Guardian Roman, president of the Vampire Authority, who wants co-existence between humans and vampires; vampire zealot Salome (yes, the Salome), intent on recreating the world in God's vampyric image; Authority Chancellor Nora, who shares the same maker as Eric; werewolves J.D. and Martha, who want a reluctant Alcide to take his rightful place as packmaster; and many more. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, True Blood Season 5 goes deep into the battle between the Vampire Authority and "vampire fundamentalists" - a political power play whose outcome could decide not only the fate of Sookie and her Bon Temps friends, but of all human existence.
HBO Video has officially announced True Blood - The Complete 5th Season on both DVD ($59.99 SRP) and also a Blu-ray Disc/DVD Combo Pack ($79.98 SRP). The street date has been scheduled for May 21st for these 5- and 7-disc sets running 720 minutes.

The DVD version comes with Audio Commentaries and "Inside the Episodes" as a bonus. The BD/DVD Combo set includes those, plus "Anatomy of an Episode," "True Blood Lines" and Enhanced Viewing with Hints/FYIs, Flashbacks/Flash Forwards, Authority Link-outs, and Character Bios. That combo kit also includes UltraViolet/Digital Copy versions of the episodes, too, which must be redeemed within two years after the original street date.
