The second season of the Syfy series is planned for Blu-ray in September.
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal will be bringing 'Defiance: Season Two' to Blu-ray on September 23.
In the year 2047, it's a new Earth, with new rules. Over thirty years after various alien races arrived on Earth, the landscape is completely altered, terraformed nearly beyond recognition. The town of Defiance, on what used to be St. Louis, stands as a living example of what happens when humans and aliens live together harmoniously, and often not-so-harmoniously. Amongst the town's many residents are former soldier Nolan (Grant Bowler) and his adoptive Irathient daughter, Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas); the former mayor, Amanda Rosewater (Julie Benz); Rafe McCawley (Graham Greene), a powerful miner; the ambitious, alien Tarr family, Datak and Stahma (Tony Curran and Jaime Murray), along with son Alak and human wife Christie (Jesse Rath and Nicole Munoz) Jaime Murray); lawman Tommy (Dewshane Williams) and cantankerous Indogene Doc Yewll (Trinna Keating). With the Earth Republic - the human run governmental organization with questionable motivations - now in control of the town and a new mayor, Niles Pottinger (Jim Murray), at the helm, the fragile peace Defiance has fought for threatens to be undone.
The 3-disc set will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Defiance: The Lost Ones Minisodes, Jesse Does Defiance, Gag Reel, and Season One Alternate Ending.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $69.98.
