Soaring Into Homes On Blu-ray™ & DVD September 18, 2018


Just in time for the fourth season premiere on The CW, catch up with the most courageous Super Heroine on TV, who flies into danger to save her city as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings you Supergirl: The Complete Third Season on Blu-ray and DVD on September 18, 2018. In Season Three, Supergirl reached almost 3.2M Total Viewers for each original episode.⃰  Fans can purchase the set which, in addition to all 23 super-powered episodes, contains the DC Crossover, the show’s 2017 Comic-Con panel, featurettes, and more! Supergirl: The Complete Third Season is priced to own at $44.98 SRP for the DVD and $49.99 SRP for the Blu-ray, which includes a Digital Copy.

In Season Three, Kara Danvers grapples with the sacrifices she’s made personally while saving National City as Supergirl.  She even considers covering up her human identity altogether. Being human and vulnerable is hard. Maybe she’s better off embracing her alien DNA and only being the “Girl of Steel.” As Kara struggles with her path forward, she continues to work with Hank Henshaw and her sister, Alex, at the Department of Extranormal Operations to battle all threats to National City, including new villains Morgan Edge, and the “Worldkiller,” known as Reign.  Everything Kara’s ever known and everyone she’s ever loved will be tested in all 23 supercharged Supergirl adventures.

The series incorporates diversity, fairness and empowerment, and our fearless female Super Hero is a perfect role model in today’s times,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, Television Marketing. “We’re excited to release the Blu-ray and DVD with in-depth bonus content in addition to the 23 action-packed episodes. Fans and newcomers alike can catch up on all their favorite moments from Season Three, and prepare for the highly anticipated fourth season of this hit series."

With Blu-ray’s unsurpassed picture and sound, Supergirl: The Complete Third Season Blu-ray release will include 1080p Full HD Video with DTS-HD Master Audio for English 5.1. In addition to featuring all 23 episodes of season three in high-definition as well as a digital copy of the season, the 4-disc Blu-ray will also include all four crossover episodes, a tremendous value and collectors opportunity.

Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller.
