The Americans - FOX Announces DVDs for 'The Complete 2nd Season'
By David Lambert |Tuesday, October 14, 2014 |tvshowsondvd.com
Fox Home Entertainment has today announced that The Americans - The Complete 2nd Season is coming to DVD late this year, on December 16th. The set runs 617 minutes long, and is presented in widescreen video with English 5.1 Dolby Digital sound with a Spanish 2.0 Surround Sound alternate track, plus closed captioning and subtitles in English, Spanish and French. There's also bonus material, including the following:
- Deleted Scenes
- Gag Reel
- Operation Ghost Stories: The Real Directorate 'S'
- Shades of Red: The Mortality of the Americans
This year, Fox has been cutting back on Blu-ray Disc releases for TV shows whose most recent season (or volume) set releases on BD just didn't have enough sales to justify the format. Apparently The Americans is one of these, as The Complete 2nd Season is being announced for DVD format only. Perhaps you and I were buying the Blu versions of those seasons, but not enough other people have been! This is just the latest of a very long line of TV shows which aren't getting a Blu-ray edition this time around.
Package art for the DVD release is below. Amazon.com hasn't begun accepting pre-orders for this title so far, but Amazon.ca (the Canadian branch) is! Here's a button link to that, and we'll look for a listing on the USA branch of Amazon to be available soon!
