HBO’s True Detective Season 1 Blu-ray and DVD Details, Release Date and Pre-Order

HBO's True Detective Season 1 Blu-ray and DVD Details, Release Date and Pre-OrderHBO has announced that True Detective Season 1 starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson has an official release date on Blu-ray and DVD of June 10, well ahead of when the second season of the hit show would be expected to premiere.

True Detective was designed as a standalone event series that spans only eight episodes. The crime drama by creator Nic Pizzolatto turned into a pop culture phenomenon as water cooler and social media chatter became obsessed with trying to figure out who the Yellow King killer was.

As a result of the show’s success, HBO and Pizzolatto are moving forward with a second season that will introduce a new cast, characters and case to solve, much like how FX’s American Horror Story begins and ends its stories on a season-by-season basis. Where AHS reuses much of its core cast in different roles, True Detective is expected to bring in all fresh faces for round two.

HBO is prepping the home video debut of True Detective Season 1 in two configurations: a Blu-ray and Digital HD package($79.98) and a DVD package ($59.98). Each package will span three discs and include the following bonus features:

  • Making True Detective – A behind-the-scenes look at production on the hit series, featuring interviews with cast and crew and including never-before-seen footage from Episode 4.
  • Up Close with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson – Exclusive interviews with the stars about filming the series.
  • A Conversation with Nic Pizzolatto and T Bone Burnett – An in-depth discussion with the series writer/creator/executive producer and the legendary composer on both the series and the pivotal role music played in the show’s development.
