Earlier this month, we told you about the announced DVD and Blu-ray release of Fringe's fifth and final season. As it turns out, that information was apparently only relevant to British fans of the series -- both the art and the release date have changed for American viewers.
The set is now slated for a May 7 release date, several weeks ahead of the previously announced date. The Complete Series set is slated to also be released on that date on DVD and Blu-ray, though there has been no official art confirmed.
If it is anything like the newly revealed season 5 artwork, though, it's going to be pretty cool. The season 5 set has been revealed to bear all-new artwork, which sees the Fringe team literally hiding underground while the Observers loom ominously above. It's pretty striking, and fits in well with the aesthetics of the previous sets.
Check out a larger version of the art below.
Special features for the sets have also been confirmed. The DVD, which will have four discs, and the Blu-ray, which will have three, will feature the following special features:
- A Farewell to “Fringe” (Featurette)
- “Fringe” Panel at Comic-Con 2012
- Producer Commentary
- Gag Reel
It's pretty sparse, but we bet the complete series package will feature quite a bit of new content.
Fringe: The Complete Fifth and Final Season will hit DVD and Blu-ray on May 7.
