Fox Home Entertainment hasn't formally announced it to retailers yet, but thanks to a full-page advertisement in the latest issue of trade journal Home Media Magazine
, we're happy to tell you to expect Burn Notice - Season 3
on DVD this coming June 1st
. Arriving just in time for the new season to begin airing, you'll get 16 episodes that include guest stars such as Moon Bloodgood, Otto Sanchez, Jay Harrington, Nicholas Lea, Josie Davis, Debi Mazar, Tyne Daly (who of course co-starred in Cagney and Lacey
with Burn Notice
co-star Sharon Gless!), Chris Vance, Danny Trejo, Tim Matheson and model Nikki DuBose.
The ad also promises "a more revealing look behind the scenes
," hinting at at least one featurette for extras. Cost is $49.98 SRP in the USA, and CA$69.98 SRP in Canada. Cover art for the DVD is shown below, taken from the trade ad. Keep in mind that it might be subject to change. The ad makes no mention at all of a Blu-ray version for this title, which might confuse fans after Fox released a BD version last year for the show's second season. It could be that a Blu version will be announced later, but frankly it wouldn't surprise us if that didn't happen. There were numerous fan (and reviewer) complaints about the video quality on the Season 2
Blu-ray version...possibly stemming from the fact that the show is shot on 16mm film. And, since Blu-rays cost more for studios to produce than DVD versions (up to six times more of a base cost, according to some industry sources), then it makes sense any studio to hold back on a BD version if they don't think it will be something the fans would flock to.
