'Alcatraz: The Complete Series' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Fri Jun 15, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

All 13 episodes of J.J. Abrams' short-lived sci-fi series will be transported to Blu-ray in October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers says 'Alcatraz: The Complete Series' is coming to high-definition on October 16.

In 1963, all prisoners were transferred from Alcatraz Island Federal Penitentiary. Or so we were told. Now America's worst criminals - known as the 63s - are returning to the streets of San Francisco to repeat their grisly crimes. It's up to top-notch Detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones, 'Sons of Anarchy: Season Two) and Alcatraz expert Diego 'Doc' Soto (Jorge Garcia, 'Lost: The Complete Collection') to work with FBI Agent Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill, 'Dead Calm') and Dr. Lucy Banerjee (Parminder Nagra, 'Batman: Gotham Knight') to learn why the 63s are back and to uncover a much larger, more sinister threat.

Specs have yet to be revealed for the 2-disc set, but supplements will include Alcatraz: Island of Intrigue, Deleted Scenes, and a Gag Reel.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is TBA.
