HBO’s limited mini-series Chernobyl will release to Blu-ray and DVD, but not Ultra HD Blu-ray. The series created by Craig Mazin explores the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant explosion in 1986, and stars Jessie Buckley, Jared Harris and Stellan Skarsgård.
HBO hasn’t announced any details about bonus features, disc specifications, or final cover art. And, we don’t have a release date yet. But we do know the 5-episode season has a total run time of 5 hours and 30 minutes. And, if the product listing is correct on Amazon we should be getting digital copies of the season with both disc releases.
Chernobyl on Blu-ray is list-priced $59.99 while the DVD is priced $49.99. Both editions are available to pre-order from Amazon. We fully expect those prices to drop some time before ship date.
