Dark Skies: The Declassified Complete Series is the official name of the six-disc release. This news is so new that specifics are few and far between, though the set is slated to include the feature-length pilot (“The Awakening”). TVShowsonDVD.com is reporting the set is slated to clock in at 900 minutes. Thanks to that site’s guru, Gord Lacey, for informing us that the 900-minute running time doesn’t factor in bonus features, or the possibility of the international cut of the pilot, so that (like all things) might change.
The set is slated to list at the incredibly reasonable $44.99; Amazon had it up for pre-order at $34.99, but that listing has since disappeared and after a brief disappearance, the listing has returned at the even cheaper price of $31.49.
A later update from our friends at TSOD shows a very cool fake government memorandum “leaked” regarding the DVD release. You can check out their article here, which also contains a clickable version of the memo for you to read for yourself.
I can confirm for you that we will definitely be receiving a review copy of this set closer to its release date, so check our TV on DVD column in the coming months for an inside look at what you’ll be treated to.
Congratulations, Dark Skies fans! You’re finally getting your wish.
