BURBANK, CA (May 24, 2016) – Building on the momentum of its wildly successful first season, Gotham turned up the heat with a villain-centric second season that has elevated the series to No. 2 among Fox shows. Fans have the chance to prepare for this fall’s suspenseful third season with the August 16, 2016 release of Gotham: The Complete Second Season on Blu-ray including Digital HD and DVD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE).
The WBHE release of the Gotham: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray including Digital HD ($54.97 SRP) and DVD ($49.99 SRP) includes all 22 episodes of the series’ thrilling second, as well as fascinating featurettes, Gotham’s 2015 Comic-Con panel, deleted scenes and a gag reel. Gotham: The Complete Second Season is also available to own on Digital HD via purchase from digital retailers.
Darkness saturates Gotham in its triumphant second season as the city’s villains continue to rise from the shadows, each more ambitious and depraved than the last. As Penguin continues to solidify his control over Gotham’s underworld, the battle for power in the city has become a game of interesting alliances on both sides of the law – with detectives Jim Gordon and Harvey Bullock at the forefront of the fight against crime in the dangerously corrupt city. Season Two witnesses Gordon’s moral compass wavering as he confronts Gotham City’s most notorious criminals while simultaneously attempting to gain the trust of young Bruce Wayne, a boy now clearly on the path toward the man he is destined to be. And all the while, Gotham follows the intriguing origin stories and evolution of some of the city’s most infamous personalities, including Edward Nygma/The Riddler, Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Hugo Strange and Mr. Freeze.
“We are thrilled to release Gotham: The Complete Second Season on Blu-ray and DVD so fans can catch up and relive the exciting and unexpected twists ahead of the highly-anticipated third season,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, Television Marketing. “The Blu-ray release offers Gotham fans the ultimate viewing experience with superior picture, optimal sound quality and an array of special bonus content, making this release a must-own DC title.”
