HBO and Warner Home Video announce when fans can sink their teeth into the DVD and Blu-ray releases of True Blood: The Complete Second Season.

A few weeks ago, TV Shows on DVD had a release date scoop as to when the second season of True Blood would arrive on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. The site gave an approximate date of May 25th.

Special to Blu-ray will be the True Blood Enhanced Viewing mode on each episode, plus Exclusive New Blu-ray Features (this according to the information in the upper left corner of the packaging below), a complete list of special features is not fully known at this time. The DVD listing from Warner/HBO only makes mention of an audio commentary and featurette.
