UPDATE: We thank reader William C. Calhoun for pointing out to us that Jackson Publick (a.k.a. Christopher McCulloch; the creator, writer and director on this series) posted in his blog back in March that a Blu-ray release will happen for the 16-episode Complete 4th Season, projected to come out in March 2011. Here's an exact quote from Publick:
"We were originally going to hold off on producing any DVDs of Season 4 until all 16 episodes were complete and we could release one massive boxed set, but given the massive amount of time between seasonal halves, that's pretty unlikely now. The current plan is to release a standard def DVD of the first 8 episodes sometime between July and October (depending on how quickly we get our acts together to record commentary, dig up special features and design the packaging), and then release both a standard def DVD of the second 8 episodes and a Blu-Ray of the entire 16 episode season in March. But that's all I know right now, so don't ask me any questions about it."
