FEAR THE WALKING DEAD Season One Hits DVD and Blu-ray…Again!



Run, don’t walk to get this souped-up release of FEAR THE WALKING DEAD’s first season.

In our review of the Blu-ray release of FEAR THE WALKING DEAD Season One, the only gripe we had was that there were almost no special features to speak of.

We should have known that those naughty buggers at AMC/Anchor Bay would blow-out another release of the series, this one loaded with the extra bells and whistles we were first denied.

Indeed, here comes FEAR THE WALKING DEAD: The Complete First Season: SPECIAL EDITION.

From the press release:

Following an initial release this past December, Anchor Bay Entertainment announced today the latest inventive and heart-racing AMC original series FEAR THE WALKING DEAD: The Complete First Season” arrives on SPECIAL EDITION on March 22, 2016.

Double-dip? Well, only if you dropped the dough on the previous edition and really need these extras. Otherwise, if you haven’t yet done so, this is the one to get. It also has a wayyyy sexier cover!

FEAR THE WALKING DEAD Season 2 premieres April 10, 2016 on AMC with 15 new episodes. 

It truly is a good show…
