'Treme: The Complete Fourth Season' & 'Treme: The Complete Series' Dated for Blu-ray

Posted Mon Dec 9, 2013 at 01:00 PM PST by

All 36 episodes of HBO's acclaimed series will be "buck jumping and having fun" on Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, HBO is preparing 'Treme: The Complete Fourth Season' and 'Treme: The Complete Series' for Blu-ray on January 28.

Beginning in 2008 and culminating at Mardi Gras 2009, the new season revisits the musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians and other familiar New Orleanians who continue to rebuild their lives, their homes and their culture in the aftermath Katrina. Heightened by the historic election of President Barack Obama, the promise of economic and cultural recovery in New Orleans is tempered by sobering economics, continued police corruption and the ongoing specter of violence and crime. More than three years after the flood, nothing in the civic firmament seems to work as it should. New Orleanians are subject to corrupt and brutal law enforcement, a fragile school system and economic priorities that almost willfully exclude the people who need help. But one thing works: the culture.

Supplements for 'Treme: The Complete Fourth Season' have not been detailed yet, but the Blu-rays will feature 1080p video and a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack. Supplements for 'Treme: The Complete Series' will include all of the extras found on the previous releases and an exclusive bonus disc with 15 music videos.

Suggested list price for the 'Treme: The Complete Fourth Season' is $49.99 and suggested list price for 'Treme: The Complete Series' is $134.99.
