Survivor Heroes vs. Villains coming to DVD

The next full-series Survivor DVD will be for its 20th season, Survivor Heroes vs. Villains. While any release is welcome, it’s both disappointing yet predictable and understandable that the next DVD is season 20. Alas, it means seasons 5, 6, and 11 through 19 remain unreleased, though you can download all those from iTunes.

Like the summer releases of Africa and Marquesas DVD sets, the DVD will be available via Amazon’s on-demand manufacturing. It doesn’t yet have a release date but can be pre-ordered for $34.95.

Amazon’s description says the release will include special features, including footage from the show’s anniversary party last January and the Ponderosa Dragons music video, in addition to all the Ponderosa episodes. Basically, the extras are videos previously available on CBS.com.

Here’s every full-season DVD currently (or soon-to-be) available; again, individual episodes and seasons are on iTunes:

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight
