If you love Season 1 of The Originals as much as we do, you’re going to want to rush out to the store when it comes out on DVD. Whether you want to buy the DVD set right away or put it on your Christmas list, you’ll need to know all the details about the big release — so what day should you mark on your calendars?

Warner Home Video has officially announced that The Originals — The Complete 1st Season will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on September 2, not too long before we suspect the CW hit series will return for its sophomore season. You will be able to buy the DVD-only version for $59.98 or the Blu-ray/DVD combo set (which includes UltraViolet digital copies of each episode) for $69.97.

No matter which format you choose, you can expect to get these epic bonus materials:

  • Pilot Commentary
  • 2013 Comic-Con Panel
  • 2014 PaleyFest Panel
  • Origins Featurette
  • Re-Mixing History
  • The Originals on The Vampire Diaries
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Gag Reel


That’s some pretty awesome bonus items, if you ask us. While we’re dying to see the gag reel, the fact that you can see both the Comic-Con and the PaleyFest panels is something TV nerds (like us) can really get excited about.

Is it September 2 yet?
