'The Office: Season Eight' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Jun 20, 2012 at 12:00 PM PDT by

24 more episodes of the hit comedy series will hit home video in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal will release 'The Office: Season Eight' on Blu-ray on September 4.

Andy (Ed Helms, 'The Hangover') has taken over as manager and he will stop at nothing to win the affection of the Dunder Mifflin staff. Outrageous antics ensue as he works to balance the respect of his employees while going toe-to-toe with Robert California (James Spader, 'Secretary'), the enigmatic new CEO. Dwight (Rainn Wilson, 'Super') makes his own grab for power when he leads a team to Florida to work under Nellie Bertram (Catherine Tate, "Dr. Who"), who may be slightly out of her mind. The relationship of Jim (John Krasinski, 'Big Miracle') and Pam (Jenna Fischer, 'A Little Help') is put to the test when Pam goes on maternity leave and her replacement has eyes for Jim.

The 5 BD-59 (Blu-ray/DVD flippers) disc set will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and bonus features will include: Extended producers' cuts of "Fundraiser" and "Angry Andy", Exclusive Office promos for the XLVI Football Championship, over 100 minutes of deleted scenes, blooper reel, The Office webisodes starring Mindy Kaling and Ellie Kemper, and Ultraviolet Digital Copies.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $59.98.
