Hey guys. Long time no… sleep?
Lots of you have been asking what’s up with Day 5, and today I FINALLY get to spill some big news -- Day 5 is coming to TV! Plus I’ve got updates on the upcoming Blu-ray release and season 3, so dig into the details below.
DAY 5 & CRUNCH TIME ARE OFFICIALLY TELEVISION SHOWS!
Season 1 of Day 5 will debut in the UK (courtesy of Sky UK) on Pick TV starting August 28th, and both seasons will air in the US on the El Rey Network beginning October 31st! We’re beyond excited for our broadcast and cable debuts, and are thrilled to work with such great partners. And as a bonus, Rooster Teeth's Crunch Time will also air on El Rey in the same window.
In addition to helping us reach a wider audience, these deals are necessary for us to move forward with season 3. However, it does mean Day 5 episodes will be coming off Rooster Teeth for a six-month window starting at the end of October, and we wanted to make sure you had plenty of advance notice to check out the unwaking nightmare. If you’re not a Rooster Teeth FIRST member already, you can sign up for a free trial here.
DAY 5 BLU-RAY DROPS AT RTX!
The Season 1 & 2 Combo Blu-ray will debut at RTX 2018 (Aug. 3-5) and be available in the Rooster Teeth store later next month. All 14 episodes of the show, with all behind-the-scenes materials and Day 5 Stories spinoffs, plus new exclusive commentaries from the cast and crew. Speaking of cast and crew, we’ll be running amok at RTX with an official Day 5 Panel and Cast Signing Session, if you’re looking for someone to sign those beautiful, newborn baby Blu-rays.
SO WHERE THE HELL IS SEASON 3?!
You’ve probably already figured it out, but Season 3 has been delayed into next year. We have a very specific vision for the series -- and the level of scope we want to achieve moving forward -- but we want to make sure it’s done right, and that the show can reach as broad an audience as possible. We’re currently in negotiations to co-produce season 3 with a partner, and I promise to update you on concrete details as soon as humanly possible.
We have some really, really cool stuff in store and I can’t wait to share more. Thanks so much for your passion for the series, and your patience as we work to give you the best damn show we can.
