It has become a cultural phenomenon. The fans embrace it, the critics adore it. And now the stakes have never been higher for the survivors…On August 27th, Anchor Bay Entertainment unleashes AMCs original series THE WALKING DEAD: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON on Blu-ray and DVD. Available as a 5-disc set in each format, the release contains all sixteen episodes from the past season. Like the previous releases, THE WALKING DEAD: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON comes stuffed with tons of bonus features, including exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, never-before-seen featurettes, audio commentaries from cast and crew, deleted scenes and other surprises!
In addition, Anchor Bay proudly announces that, in response to overwhelming fan response to last years Season 2 limited edition zombie head packaging, THE WALKING DEAD: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON Blu-ray will be available in a limited edition zombie head tank package (water not included!) specially created once again by McFarlane Toys. SRP is $79.99 for the Blu-ray, $69.98 for the DVD and $149.99 for the Blu-ray limited edition. Pre-book is July 31st.
Based on the hugely popular graphic novels by Robert Kirkman, THE WALKING DEAD: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON continues to draw in record audiences. Season 3 follows the weary group of survivors led by police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), as they take refuge in a prison and attempt to set up a permanent camp. But while invading zombies are an ever-present danger, they must also battle the living, not only in the form of abandoned prisoners, but also the sadistic Governor (David Morrissey) and his followers. New characters introduced this season include Danai Gurira as Michonne, with her two zombie pets in tow, and Dallas Roberts (Shadow People) as the Governors lieutenant Milton, as well as the return of Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker).
THE WALKING DEAD: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON cast also includes Laurie Holden, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, IronE Singleton, Chandler Riggs, Scott Wilson and Melissa McBride.
Season 4 of The Walking Dead premieres on AMC this October.
