'The Borgias: The Complete Third Season' Blu-ray Dated and Detailed

Posted Fri May 17, 2013 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The third season of the Showtime series starring Jeremy Irons as Pope Alexander VI is planned for Blu-ray in August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Paramount is working on 'The Borgias: The Complete Third Season' for Blu-ray on August 6.

The saga of history's most infamous crime family continues as Pope Alexander conspires with his ruthless sons and poisonously seductive daughter to obtain untold wealth and power. Mercilessly cruel and defiantly decadent, intimidation and murder are his weapons of choice in his scandalous ascension to the papacy. In Season Three, Alexander clings desperately to power, relying on Cesare (Francois Arnaud) to exact revenge on his enemies and secure the family legacy. But Cesare is hellbent on his own rise, and at any cost, leading to an epic father-son struggle with Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger) as the reluctant pawn.

The Blu-ray set will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include a gag reel and Ray Donovan: Episodes 1 & 2.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $65.99.
