DEXTER is back! The critically acclaimed and groundbreaking original series from SHOWTIME starring Michael C. Hall, returns to DVD with all 12 riveting and chilling episodes in DEXTER-THE SECOND SEASON. Although committed to carrying out his twisted brand of vigilante justice-Dexter begins to doubt his murderous capabilities and continues to be haunted by his tortured past. His difficulties multiply when evidence of his deadly after-hours activities begin to surface and the FBI is brought in to investigate the city's new serial killer dubbed the "Bay Harbor Butcher." Dexter cant pause for a breathe as the noose tightens and the questions keep mounting. Will he be able to continue his serial-killing ways? Or will Dexter's dark past finally be uncovered?
After a DVD release this past August, Dexter - The 2nd Season
now comes to high-defintion Blu-ray Disc on May 5th
, according to the studio announcement this morning from Showtime and Paramount Home Entertainment. All 12 episodes will be provided in widescreen 1080p high-def video, English 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio. There will also be a Spanish language audio option, and English subtitles as well. The running time is 636 minutes.
In addition to that, trade journal Home Media Magazine
reports on Page 8 of their newest print edition that it will be a 3-BD set costing $57.99 SRP (just three dollars more than the first season on Blu-ray). They go on to say that it will have BD-live bonus material that includes Podcasts, a "Blood Fountains" Featurette, a "Dark Defender" series (based on the comic book character-type "story-within-a-story" seen in Dexter
episodes), and bonus episodes of two other Showtime programs: Nurse Jackie
and the excellent United States of Tara
Below we have an EARLY look at possible box art for this release. It could be temp art, though, provided to retailers as a placeholder for the final packaging design. So don't take this as "guaranteed" yet. Still, it's similar to what we saw with Dexter's
first season BD release (the DVD key art moved onto a Blu-ray box), so there's a good chance that this is what you'll see on store shelves in May:
