HBO has announced DVD ($59.99) and Blu-ray/DVD Combo ($79.98) releases of “True Blood: The Complete Fifth Season” for May 21. DVD Active reports that the only extra material on the DVD release will be audio commentaries. The Blu-ray/DVD Combo will also include an Anatomy of an Episode, Character Bios, a digital copy, and more.
“Returning for its fifth season, “True Blood” is HBO’s sexy, scary, wildly entertaining drama series from Oscar- and Emmy-winner Alan Ball (“Six Feet Under”) and based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. In addition to returning cast favorites – human/faerie waitress Sookie Stackhouse, her vampire suitors Bill Compton and Eric Northman, soul-searching pal Tara, shape-shifting boss Sam, rakish brother Jason, clairvoyant Lafayette and teen-vamp Jessica – Season 5 introduces a whole new wave of otherworldly characters. There’s Vampire Guardian Roman, president of the Vampire Authority, who wants co-existence between humans and vampires; vampire zealot Salome (yes, the Salome), intent on recreating the world in God’s vampyric image; Authority Chancellor Nora, who shares the same maker as Eric; werewolves J.D. and Martha, who want a reluctant Alcide to take his rightful place as packmaster; and many more. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, “True Blood” Season 5 goes deep into the battle between the Vampire Authority and “vampire fundamentalists” – a political power play whose outcome could decide not only the fate of Sookie and her Bon Temps friends, but of all human existence.“
