'Being Human: Season Five' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Fri May 10, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The final six episodes of the BBC fantasy series will hit Blu-ray in August.

In an early announcement to retailers, BBC has slated 'Being Human: Season Five' for Blu-ray on August 20.

Season Five follows Hal (Damien Molony), Tom (Michael Socha) and Alex (Kate Bracken) as they continue their search for their lost humanity. But numerous threats once again lurk around every corner. There is the volatile and deluded Crumb (Colin Hoult), a newly recruited vampire, and the sinister Mr. Rook (Steven Robertson), head of a secret government department tasked with keeping supernatural activity under wraps. With bills to be paid, our heroes take jobs in a kitschy hotel where, alongside the tacky décor and cocktail umbrellas, dwells an evil greater than anything Hal, Tom and Alex have faced before: Captain Hatch (Phil Davis). On the face of it, he's just another foul-mouthed, decrepit old man, but he hides a dark secret that threatens not only our heroes' friendships but the entire world.

The 2-disc set will feature 1080p video, a Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack, and supplements will include Exclusive Content; Five Bonus Clips: "Alex's Unfinished Business"; Deleted Scenes; and Cast Interviews.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.98.
