Arrow’s Second Season Hits DVD and Blu-ray September 16

With the third season of the hit DC Comics series set to launch on The CW October 8, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group has announced plans to release “Arrow: The Complete Second Season” on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on September 16, 2014. The release contains all 23 action-packed episodes from the second season, plus the one-hour Season One recap episode, “Year One,” and over 90 minutes of extra content, including episode commentary, three behind-the-scenes featurettes, deleted scenes, six mini-webisodes, and a gag reel.

Billionaire archery enthusiast Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) returns for another season in Starling City. Sworn to fight crime and corruption in his city, Oliver (aka the Arrow) – with the help of the tech-savvy Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and his iron-fisted right hand, John Diggle (David Ramsey), and the occasional, reluctant assistance of former police detective Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) – has been waging a one-man war on crime. But in all wars, there are casualties. To honor his fallen friend, Tommy Merlyn, and protect the people he loves, Oliver must rededicate himself to his mission and be more than just a vigilante. He must become a beacon of hope for the city’s most vulnerable…and a weapon of justice against those who prey upon them. Malcolm Merlyn (aka the Dark Archer) rocked Oliver Queen’s world in the first season finale of Arrow, but who’s going to pick up the pieces? Find out in season two as Oliver Queen goes from Hood to Hero!
