If you've been waiting for The Walking Dead to be released on Blu-ray or DVD, you won't have to wait as long. Anchor Bay has announced that the complete first season will be available on March 8, 2011. It will have a suggested retail price of $49.99 for the Blu-ray and $39.98 for DVD (of course you can pre-order it online for 37% cheaper).
The price might be a little high but keep in mind how good it was. Another thing to consider is because it was on AMC, the network most likely doesn't bring in as much as a major network. You could think of the purchase as a way to support the show and AMC. I'm thankful it was a hit and we're getting a second season.
What about special features?

There wasn't any mention of special features for the DVD so I would assume they were the same.
