The Walking Dead comes to Blu-ray and DVD March 8

One of our end of year picks as a best new drama on TV, “The Walking Dead” is coming to DVD and Blu-ray.

The groundbreaking, genre-bending AMC original series “The Walking Dead” rises again when Anchor Bay Entertainment releases the Blu-ray™ and DVD of the hit show that wowed both critics and audiences on March 8.

Both the “The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season” Blu-ray™ and DVD contain all 6 episodes of the first season on a 2-disc set and are packed with special behind-the-scenes featurettes and insightful extra footage.

Monsters and Critics interviewed Robert Kirkman about the series.

Nominated for a Golden Globe® for Best Television Series – this drama is a twist on the classic zombie genre, as it unfolds a post-apocalyptic saga that follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), who searches for a safe haven and, hopefully, a new home, far from the undead that now roam the earth hungry for human flesh. 

Each episode explores the challenges of life in a world overrun by zombies, and the toll it takes on the survivors who now find themselves going to extremes just to see another day. In this horrific world gone mad, each turn brings new surprises and dangers, as the survivors try to regain some semblance of a normal life.

The series is based on the popular Image Comics’ comic book written by Robert Kirkman. The series premiered on AMC Fearfest Halloween night and immediately became the most watched drama series in cable’s history among Adults 18-49 with 3.5 million viewers.
