The Walking Dead Season 4 just ended a few days ago on March 30, but we’re already ready to see it again on DVD/Blu-ray — compete with commentary and other goodies.
So when can you relieve Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) journey from farmer to prison cop to beat-up dad to third wheel in Carl/Michonne’s new BFF-ness, to Daryl Dixon’s (Norman Reedus) “brother,” to official exterminator of all Termites?
The official DVD release date is … Tuesday, August 26, 2014! That’s in line with recent seasons, which were also released in August. It’s always nice when TWD sticks with a schedule. It makes things easier for us.
The official TWD store has the Season 4 DVD available for pre-order for $69.98, with the Blu-ray at $79.99. The special limited edition Blu-ray set — with the cool tree walker — sells for $129.99.
Amazon and other places have it on discount, so just pre-order it wherever you pre-order stuff.
As we previously noted when previewing the S4 Blu-ray set, McFarlane Toys always does an amazing job with the special editions, from the intricate zombie head for Season 2 to The Governor's head aquarium for Season 3. This time we have The Tree Walker, who was seen in Season 4, Episode 3, "Isolation." According to MTV, when you remove the Blu-rays from the folder, the walker's arm and head reach for you, and only go back in place when you return the discs.
Also, in case you need even more incentive to buy Season 4 in some fashion, Andrew Lincoln was reportedly asked to do commentary for Episode 14, "The Grove," which will mark the first time he's actually seen the show. Can you believe he doesn’t normally watch it? He's not even in "The Grove" (the big Lizzie/Mika/Carl/Tyreese ep) but it was such a controversial, wrenching hour — it will be interesting to hear his thoughts. It's interesting to hear anything with his voice, but this will be enlightening.
Are you buying Season 4? If so, on DVD, Blu-ray, or a special edition? Feel free to share your plans below!
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October 2014 on AMC.
