“Riverdale: The Complete First Season” Gets 15 August 2017 Blu-ray and DVD Release Date
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will be releasing Riverdale: The Complete First Season on DVD on 15 August, 2017. Relive the awesome messiness of the first 13 episodes!
On 26 January, 2017, Riverdale premiered with 2.4 million viewers on The CW. It was created by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Glee, Big Love) and produced by Greg Berlanti (The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Blindspot).
It stars KJ Apa (Shortland Street), Lili Reinhart (The Kings of Summer), Camila Mendes (Randy Doe), Cole Sprouse (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody), Marisol Nichols (Big Momma’s House 2), Madelaine Petsch (The Curse of Sleeping Beauty), Ashleigh Murray (Deidra & Laney Rob a Train), Mädchen Amick (Twin Peaks), and Luke Perry (Beverly Hills 90210). Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is also an executive producer, along with Sarah Schechter.
The upcoming DVD release contains all 13 episodes from the first season. It also includes new bonus content, never-before-seen deleted scenes, and a gag reel. I love that Warner Bros. Home Entertainment offers bonus content with the home releases.
You can own Riverdale: The Complete First Season for $39.99 SRP this August. It is currently available to own on Digital HD via purchase from digital retailers including Amazon Video, CinemaNow, iTunes, PlayStation, Vudu, Xbox, and others.
The first season will also be available on Blu-ray (courtesy Warner Archive Collection) on 15 August, 2017, and will include all the extra content from the DVD. All Warner Archive Blu-ray releases are found at Amazon and all online retailers.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Based on the characters from Archie Comics, Riverdale gives a subversive take on small-town life. Things aren’t always what you expect inRiverdale. As a new school year begins, the town is reeling from the tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom. The summer’s events made all-American teen Archie Andrews realize that he wants to pursue a career in music, but his fractured friendship with Jughead Jones, and Josie McCoy’s focus on her own band leaves Archie without a mentor. Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper is not ready to reveal her true feelings for Archie, and new student, Veronica Lodge, has an undeniable spark with Betty’s crush. And then there’s Cheryl Blossom, Riverdale’s queen bee, who stirs up trouble amongst Archie, Betty and Veronica. But is Cheryl hiding something about the mysterious death of her twin brother, Jason? Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, but there’s so much more to the story.
While Riverdale has its faults, it is an enjoyable show, the kind that creates a passionate fandom. Check out the enjoyable podcast from “Beacon Hills After Dark” about the finale.
“Riverdale is full of nostalgic Archie elements, but this all-new series brings viewers mystery, seduction, and corruption; and would probably make the original gang blush,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, Television Marketing. “We’re thrilled to offer fans this dark, subversive pleasure – along with exclusive DVD and Blu-ray bonus content – just in time for the second season premiere on The CW.”
