THE CAPE Officially Strangled, Lives On Through DVD Afterlife

While we pretty much knew the show wouldn’t be back, NBC has officially revealed the cancelation of The Cape with the announcement of “The Complete Series” on DVD, expected for a July 5th release.

So much went wrong with this series, one day soon we’ll really have to post a run-down on why it belly-flopped – or at least give it some sort of RIP. (Hey, perhaps the show rocks in the afterlife?). In the meantime, head past the jump for the press release and cover art.

‘The Cape – The Complete Series’ Press Release:

Vince Faraday (David Lyons, TV’s “E.R.”) is an honest cop on a corrupt police force. But when he’s framed for murder and presumed dead, he finds that he must go into hiding, leaving behind his wife, Dana (Jennifer Ferrin, TV’s “Life on Mars”), and son, Trip (Ryan Wynott, TV’s “Flash Forward”). Determined to battle the criminals who now control his hometown, Vince takes the law into his own hands and becomes The Cape-his son’s favorite comic book superhero. Featuring an incredible supporting cast, including James Frain (TV’s “The Tudors”), Keith David (Death at a Funeral), Summer Glau (TV’s “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”), Dorian Missick (The Manchurian Candidate), Martin Klebba (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Vinnie Jones (Snatch), it’s the action-packed series that has critics raving, “‘The Cape’ is cloaked in awesome.” (OK! Magazine).

It appears they’re not releasing a Blu-ray version, with no extras planned either – which just about says it all.

The 2-disc set has a run time of 371 minutes and comes in anamorphic widescreen video, English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, and with English subtitles. Cost: $29.98 SRP

Are you sad to see The Cape go? Will you be getting the DVD?

    ugh, pr/advertising is such a lie, and so obvious with this title.
    Like at the end … had critics raving? Really? If they were, then why isn’t the series being renewed? And they have the one quote from OK magazine … never heard of it. And what a ridiculous quote!
    I wonder if the transfer process is going to be botched like with, say, the first season of Family Guy on disc.

    If it doesn’t have any extras, then I won’t buy it. The show was OK, I watched it online (thank you imdb/hulu!). I watched every episode.
    But … I still am not ready to give an opinion on it yet.
    I like what you say!
