With iZombie recently having concluded its phenomenal second season, many fans have probably been wondering when they will be able to add it to their shelves. On July 12, you’ll be able to view all 19 episodes of the sophomore season on either DVD or Blu-Ray, but there’s a catch: only the DVD set will find its way into retail stores, while the Blu-Ray will be released online via Warner Archive and can be purchased through Amazon and other such sites.
Furthermore, the first season will finally see a Blu-Ray release that very same day, which will also be available exclusively online. Fans of the show have been clamoring to see it in all of its brain eating glory on Blu-Ray since last year, so it’s good that WB came through. Season One had previously seen only a DVD release and is not exactly the easiest show based on a DC Comics property to find on retail shelves.
For a full rundown of episodes, bonus features, specs, and much more, be sure to check out the full press release below:
BURBANK, CA; April 20, 2016 – From executive producers Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars, 90210, Party Down) and Diane Ruggiero-Wright (Veronica Mars, The Ex List), Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Entertainment’s Vertigo bring iZOMBIE: The Complete Second Season to DVD on July 12, 2016. iZOMBIE, The CW’s hit series, that over 2 million people are tuning into weekly, stars Rose McIver (Once Upon a Time, Masters of Sex), Malcolm Goodwin (Breakout Kings), Rahul Kohli (Eastenders), Robert Buckley (One Tree Hill) and David Anders (Once Upon a Time, The Vampire Diaries). The 4-disc DVD set includes all 19 episodes from the second season, plus deleted scenes and the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con panel. iZOMBIE: The Complete Second Season is priced to own at $39.99 SRP.
Additionally, due to overwhelming fan demand, iZOMBIE comes to Blu-ray courtesy of Warner Archive as individual Season 1 and Season 2 offerings. The Blu-ray releases of iZOMBIE will include all bonus features on the DVD versions of Season 1 and Season 2, respectively. Also available on July 12, 2016, the Blu-ray releases will be found at Amazon.com and all online retailers.
Power up with your favorite brain food, and prepare for more fun and thrills! iZOMBIE stars Rose McIver as Olivia “Liv” Moore, a medical resident on the fast track to a perfect life…until she’s turned into a zombie. But Liv finds her calling – and an endless supply of food – working at the Seattle coroner’s office, helping to solve crimes with her “visions,” while her boss and sole confidante, Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti, works on a cure for her unthinkable condition.
As Season Two begins, Liv’s ex-fiancé and love, Major, is reeling from recent events and the knowledge that Liv is a zombie. Meanwhile, Blaine – now human – struggles to maintain his zombie world; Clive searches for Blaine and suspects Major’s involvement in the Meat Cute massacre; and Ravi remains devoted to finding an antidote to the zombie virus. Unlikely alliances will be struck, relationships will be challenged and the line between good and evil will blur for both zombies and the fully living.
“In only its second season on the air, it’s a no-brainer that iZOMBIE continues to be a fan-favorite with its compelling characters and visionary plotlines,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, Television Marketing. “We are delighted to bring iZOMBIE: The Complete Second Season to DVD.”
iZOMBIE is based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred for Vertigo from DC Entertainment. The series was developed for television by Thomas and Ruggiero-Wright, who executive produce along with Danielle Stokdyk (Veronica Mars, Party Down) and Dan Etheridge (Veronica Mars, Party Down). iZOMBIE is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Spondoolie Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
