The short-lived cult series is getting a Blu-ray upgrade in March.
In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory will be releasing 'Freaks and Geeks: The Complete Series (Collector's Edition)' on Blu-ray on March 22.
Set in 1980 at the fictional McKinley High in Detroit, Freaks and Geeks focused on two groups of outsiders: the stoners, tough kids and bad girls; and the brains, nerds and squares. Although this Emmy award-winning series ran for only one season, it has remained a cult favorite and a benchmark of quality television.
A funny and authentic portrait of high school life with all of its horrors and triumphs, Freaks And Geeks resonates with anybody who has ever felt like they don’t quite fit in. The series’ legacy – including the ongoing success of many of its key personnel, from creator Paul Feig (Bridesmaids), to executive producer Judd Apatow (The 40-Year Old Virgin), to cast members such as Linda Cardellini, Seth Rogen, James Franco, and Jason Segel – is undoubtedly secure in the hearts and minds of its passionate (and ever-growing) fanbase.
This collector's edition set includes all 18 episodes in both original aspect ratio (1.33:1) and widescreen (1.78:1); a special features disc, complete with extras and audio commentaries from both The Complete Series DVD set (2004) and The Yearbook Edition set (2008); and a new booklet packed with a letter and Q&A from creators Paul Feig and Judd Apatow, essays, and memorabilia.
