Superman: The Animated Series Remastered Blu-ray Release Date and Bonus Content Revealed

Superman: The Complete Animated Series will be coming to Blu-ray this October, courtesy of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The release will complement the 25th anniversary of the series, which garnered two Daytime Emmy Awards in its five-year run. The collection, which contains all 54 episodes of the series, will be completely remastered, allowing fans to soak in the fine art and production without losing the soul of the original program.

Superman: The Animated Series premiered on The Kids' WB block in September of 1996, and was seen as a worthy successor and sister series to the beloved Batman: The Animated Series. It received a comics adaptation to correlate with the episodes, and featured the vocal talents of Tim Daly as Kal-El/Superman, Dana Delany as Lois Lane, David Kaufman as Jimmy Olsen, and Clancy Brown as Lex Luthor. The show also earned 11 Emmy nominations, including honors as the Outstanding Special Class Animated Program of 1996. The final episode aired on February 12, 2000.
