Season eight sees series veterans such as Mary Lynn Rajskub and Elisha Cuthbert return, while also introducing new stars Freddie Prinze Jr, Anil Kapoor (Slumdog Millionaire) and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica).

Details on additional content for the BD release are yet to be revealed, but expect to hear more over the summer. The box set is available to pre-order from Amazon.
