The Office: The Complete Series on Blu-ray November

– Amazon Commissions Earned –

Well, it’s about damn time! That’s what she said. But seriously, “The Office: The Complete Series” is finally getting a Blu-ray Disc box set of all nine seasons for the first time on November 10th via Universal, according to retailers. The tech specs and bonus materials for the box set have not yet been detailed, but they should contain 1080p HD video in the 1.78:1 aspect ratio and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 sound, as found on previous seasons that appeared on the format. There’s no word yet if the release will come with a digital copy of the series, as Season 8 on the format did. All we know really for certain so far is that release date, that it’ll contain all of the seasons, including some very nice artwork (pictured above), and that the set on Blu-ray is now available for preorder over at Amazon.

The now cult-classic TV show ran for a total of 9 seasons, for 188 episodes, from 2005 through 2013 on the NBC network. The show, a remake of sorts of the British TV series of the same title, was adapted by Greg Daniels. The Office (U.S.) starred Steve Carell, Rainn Wilson, Jenna FischerJohn Krasinski, Leslie David Baker, Brian Baumgartner, Angela Kinsey, Phyllis Smith, Kate Flannery, Creed Bratton, Oscar Nuñez, B.J. Novak, Mindy Kaling, Ed Helms, Paul Lieberstein, Craig Robinson, Ellie Kemper, Andy Buckley, Catherine Tate, Rashida Jones, Melora Hardin, Zach Woods, and James Spader.

“The Happytime Murders” with Melissa McCarthy comes to Blu-ray in November

It seems that the 2018 Brian Henson directed film The Happytime Murders is already slated for a Blu-ray Disc release on November 20th via Universal, according to an early alert to retailers. Tech specs and bonus materials for the release have not yet been detailed but stay tuned for updates, especially once the studio officially announces it and such. The release seems will be a “combo pack” with a DVD and Digital Copy of the film included. The Blu-ray is available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon and Best Buy.

EDITORIAL NOTE: File this as a RUMOR, and specifically one under: “Wow that was quick!” It seems that perhaps the bad reviews from critics may be why this film, just released in late, late August (a week ago), is already slated for a home video release. If you don’t believe me, take a look at its current score over at Rotten Tomatoes and read a review snippet or two. It doesn’t seem to have been too well received by the critics, nor even totally audiences as its rating on Rotten Tomatoes (for audiences) and over at IMDb prove. This quick of a theatrical to home video turnaround is pretty rare. While this may be a rumor, I think the retailer indicating the release date is a dependable source and is very likely correct. Again, stay tuned for updates regarding this release.
