The Insider has learned that the forthcoming DVD release of Season 3 of Grey's Anatomy has been subtitled "Seriously Extended," and Amazon.com has already placed a pre-order page up for the pending set.
As far as what "seriously extended" means, that's anyone's guess for now. A number of bonus features are likely to be included along with the 25 episodes in their entirety.
The subtitle for the DVD set may just be funny marketing, but it could be an indication of not only deleted scenes, but extended episodes.
This is not a consideration for Grey's Anatomy alone. There have been rumors that some top current shows may receive extended air times on DVD sets.
However, such a move could mean altering the narrative of the episodes, a huge detractor for some, and enough of a reason to shelve the idea until now at least. So who knows.
Word is, though, that as soon as the DVD set hit pre-order status, Grey's Anatomy fans started reaching for their credit cards in hordes.
Season three of Grey's Anatomy was at times apocalyptic for the series' "dramedy" landscape. On top of some of the more memorable moments in the show's brief history, the third campaign was a season that began with a predictable dramatic angle, but ended in interpersonal disarray.
This Grey's Anatomy set will undoubtedly be jam packed with plenty of the traditional DVD extras fans have come to love, like deleted scenes, gag reels, commentaries, and behind the scenes footage.
Again, the Grey's Anatomy "Seriously Extended" complete third season DVD box set is scheduled to be released September 11, 2007. Grey's Anatomy's fourth season will begin shortly thereafter.
