Walt Disney Home Entertainment has officially announced and detailed the Blu-ray release of Once Upon a Time: The Complete Second Season. The sophomore season of the popular ABC fantasy series stars Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White, Josh Dallas as Prince Charming, Lana Parrilla as the Evil Queen, Emilie de Ravin as Belle, Colin O'Donoghue as Captain Hook, Meghan Ory as Red Riding Hood, and Robert Carlyle as Rumplestiltskin, and arrives on Blu-ray on August 13th.
Synopsis: The curse is broken, magic has arrived, and there's no telling what, or who, will be unleashed. Now the exiled fairytale characters of Once Upon a Time must grapple with a flood of awakened memories as they come to grips with their new "reality." Old loyalties will be tested, new heroes will emerge and vengeful villains will wreak havoc, including ruthless pirate Captain Hook and the relentlessly wicked Queen of Hearts (Barbara Hershey).
Amidst the backdrop of previously unexplored lands and a newly magical Storybrooke, love and sacrifice will set the stage for the ultimate battle between good and evil. For, in the words of Rumplestiltskin, where magic is concerned, only one thing is certain: it always comes at a price. From Storybrooke to Fairy Tale Land and beyond, experience the mystery, romance, action and adventure of Once Upon a Time. Season Two also stars Jamie Chung as Mulan, Julian Morris as Prince Phillip, Lee Arenberg as Grumpy, Sarah Bolger as Princess Aurora, Jorge Garcia as Anton the Giant, Ethan Embry as Owen Flynn, David Anders as Dr. Victor Frankenstein, Alan Dale as King George, Beverley Elliott as Granny, Eion Bailey as Pinnocchio, Raphael Sbarge as Jiminy Cricket and Tony Amendola as Geppetto.

Got the email yesterday from Amazon confirming this release date. This will be a blind buy for me. I pre-ordered this from Amazon when they offered a $15 off coupon. I've only seen two episodes from the first season. Decent show and I have heard good things about it. I'll let my order go through if the price is right.
Don't know that I'll buy the BD, but this show is a guilty pleasure of mine. It has an amazingly convoluted story line for a show that at least in part is supposed to appeal to kids, and I really enjoy that aspect to it - I think it shows a respect for the audience. And I have to congratulate Disney because you wouldn't think they'd be happy about this completely different perspective on characters that they made famous (even if they don't own the classic stories). I think it's fun as they introduce new classic characters.
However, there's an article in the Times today that it's experiencing a "sophomore slump" - ratings are down from an average of 11.84 million total viewers in the first season to 10.4 million in the second. This is a hard show to join late in the game because the plot is so complex.
