One of Adult Swim’s biggest hits, The Venture Bros.’ fifth season is finally coming to home video formats.
The fifth season of The Venture Bros. picks up moments after the stunning climax of season four and hits the ground running for a season of globe-trotting adventures and stay-at-home suspense. But no matter where it runs—from the steamy jungles of Central America, to the sparkling sands of the Greek Islands, to the seedy back alleys of Tangier, to the jagged cliffs of By-Golly Gulch—the Venture family can’t escape the treachery of enemies old, new, and within.
Season five of the show, which harkens back to the grand adventures of the pulp era (with a healthy dose of comedy thrown in), was one of the most popular in its run. Featuring some pretty big time voice talent too, the show firmly ensconced itself in the realm of wider pop culture appeal.
Now that it’s finally on DVD and Blu Ray, Warner Bros and Adult Swim have done it up right with a release that includes not only all of the episodes in the season that saw airing, but also a pair of special installments and some neat bonus features. Both the “A Very Venture Halloween” and “From the Ladle to the Grave: The Shallow Gravy Story.” can be found on the discs as well as deleted scenes and even some director commentary from show creator Jackson Publick and “fellow writer, director and executive producer” Doc Hammer.
The two-disc DVD set and Blu Ray versions of The Venture Bros. Season 5 will be available for pre-order on January 28th for the prices of $24.98 USD and $31.97 USD respectively. Expect it to hit the streets on March 4th.
