The Walking Dead Season 2 Coming to Blu-Ray and DVD
Posted by George Edward Nigma on July 28, 2012
If you’re reading this feature then chances are that you’ve already seen season 2 of The Walking Dead and are just counting down the days until it is released so you can watch it over and over again in the comfort of your own living room (or hiding beneath the pillows/covers!). So on top of the (unlucky for some) thirteen episodes what else can we expect from this release? Well extra features include a UK only special; Character Profiles, nice to get something special for us Brits. There’s also a whole host of featurettes (eleven in total!), and a ton of deleted scenes which include audio commentaries.
They come at a pretty penny mind you, RRP for the DVD release is £39.99 and £44.99 for the Blu-ray release. However, I am looking forward to seeing these in all their Blu-ray beauty.
