The latest TV series based on a DC/Vertigo property to be granted a home video release is that of Lucifer, which has already won over audiences with its devilish charm and intriguing mysteries. On August 23, you can add the first season to your collection, but there’s a catch: WB has elected to go the same route they have with the iZombie home video releases and bring Lucifer to major retailers via DVD only. If you wish to buy the show on Blu-Ray, you will have to do so through your online retailer of choice.
You can check out the full press release below, which includes a detailed synopsis, a full rundown of featurettes and episodes included and specs. We also have the cover art for both formats for your viewing pleasure.

Based on the character from DC Entertainment’s Vertigo comic, Lucifer is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, and has resigned his throne and retired to the City of Angels, where he is indulging in a few of his favorite things — wine, women and song. When a beautiful pop star is brutally murdered before his eyes, he feels something awaken deep within him…for the first time in roughly 10 billion years. Is he actually capable of feelings for a human being? The very thought disturbs him — as well as his best friend and confidante, Mazikeen (aka Maze), a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman. The murder attracts the attention of LAPD homicide detective Chloe Decker, who finds herself both repulsed and fascinated by Lucifer. As they work together to solve the murder, Lucifer is struck by Chloe’s inherent goodness. Used to dealing with the absolute worst of humanity, he begins to wonder if there’s hope yet. Maybe everyone’s got a chance for redemption. Even the Devil.

Based upon the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo from DC Entertainment, Lucifer is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with Warner Bros. Television. Tom Kapinos (Californication) developed the series and serves as executive consultant. Returning for a second season on FOX, the series is executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer (CSIfranchise, Pirates of the Caribbean films), Jonathan Littman (The Amazing Race, CSI franchise), Joe Henderson (White Collar, Almost Human), Ildy Modrovich (CSI: Miami, Californication) and Len Wiseman (Underworld films).
