"Southland" DVD Set To Include Seasons 2 Through 4

By Rich Heldenfels Published: October 25, 2012

That's 26 episodes, six from the second season, 10 each from three and four. The official word:

Delving into the lives of cops, criminals, victims and their families, the acclaimed police drama Southland — from John Wells Productions — presents an authentic look at police work in Los Angeles unlike any other. With their lives on the line every day, these cops and detectives sometimes triumph, and sometimes fail — but always fight to try and make a difference. Warner Bros Home Entertainment Group (WBHEG) will release Southland: The Complete Second, Third and Fourth Seasons on DVD February 5, 2013, just in time for the show’s fifth season broadcast premiere on TNT.  This 6-disc DVD release contains all 26 explosive episodes from Seasons Two, Three and Four, plus over one hour of bonus extras, all priced to own at a $59.98 SRP. 


Created by Ann Biderman (NYPD Blue) and executive produced by John Wells (ER, The West Wing), Christopher Chulack (ER, Third Watch), and Jonathan Lisco (K-Ville, NYPD Blue), Southland: The Complete Second, Third and Fourth Seasons contains 26 episodes of the gripping, lightning-paced series about the courageous men and women who live their lives on a jagged edge, confronting criminals, victims and a sprawling city laced with vice and seething with danger. From the beaches to Beverly Hills, Hollywood to South Central, Southland gets underneath the skin of Los Angeles, with a police unit comprised of bold rookies and hardened veterans. From gangbangers to murder and drug deals gone wrong, sometimes the poison they live with on the job comes home with them. Police action hits hard in Southland, and fans get to experience all the victories and all the anguish with an unrestricted look at the LAPD.


“Southland is one of the most dramatic, emotionally engaging and authentic police dramas on air with its realistic and raw storytelling,” said Rosemary Markson, Senior Vice President, TV and Special Interest Marketing of Warner Bros Home Entertainment Group.  “We are thrilled to finally release Southland: The Complete Second, Third and Fourth Seasons on DVD for fans of this critically-acclaimed series.”


In its fourth season, Southland was the #1 primetime program for the season on TNT and a Top 10 show in its time period among Households, Total Viewers and Adults 25-54.* 


Starring Michael Cudlitz, Shawn Hatosy, Regina King and Ben McKenzie – and Kevin Alejandro, Arija Bareikis, Clifton Collins, Jr. and Michael McGrady in Season Two – Southland is from John Wells Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Created by Ann Biderman, the series’ creative team has included John Wells, Christopher Chulack, Biderman, Jonathan Lisco and Andrew Stearn.
