The 2020 TV series adaptation of Stephen King‘s “The Stand“ is officially coming to Blu-ray Disc on October 5th, via CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment. The TV series, as seen on Paramount Plus (formerly CBS All Access), starred James Marsden, Odessa Young, Alexander Skarsgård, Amber Heard, Jovan Adepo, Owen Teague, Brad William Henke, Henry Zaga, Ezra Miller, Greg Kinnear, and Whoopi Goldberg.
UPDATE: The tech specs for the release include a 1080p HD video presentation in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless surround sound, spanning across what seems to be a 3-disc set. Stay tuned for an update, as I’ve asked CBS for more info in regards to those specifics.
The 2020 TV series Blu-ray is now available for preorder over at Amazon. You can find a list of bonus materials set to be included with the release listed below.
