The Invaders - 'The Complete Series' of the 1967 Show Starring Roy Thinnes Lands At Last!

12-DVD set with both seasons of the classic series will invade stores in June

Posted by David Lambert
    THE INVASION BEGINS! Architect David Vincent (Roy Thinnes) has stumbled upon a terrifying secret: aliens from a doomed planet are infiltrating the Earth! After witnessing their spaceship land, Vincent tries to warn the authorities, who believe he's crazy or have already been compromised by the Invaders, who take on human form. As Vincent learns more about the aliens and their plans to take over the earth, he becomes their greatest threat. Now a target of the aliens, our hero - along with believer and millionaire Edgar Scoville (Ken Smith) - races to stop the invasion, and save the human race.

    Available in a new 12-disc shelf-friendly complete series collection! Great guest stars: Gene Hackman, Ed Asner, Dabney Coleman, Peggy Lipton, Peter Graves, Suzanne Pleschette, Ted Knight, Sally Kellerman, and Barbara Hershey. From the producers of The Fugitive, Cannon and Streets of San Francisco, The Invaders: The Complete Series, features all 43 episodes of the original, suspense-filled series, plus special features (episodic intros by Roy Thinnes, audio commentaries, interviews and extended pilot) and commentary by the series creator.
In 1967, Quinn Martin Productions (The Untouchables, The Fugitive, The F.B.I., The Streets of San Francisco, Barnaby Jones) launched a new series in co-operation with ABC. The Invaders starred Roy Thinnes (The Hindenburg, Airport '75, Falcon Crest, Dark Shadows {1991}) as"David Vincent," a man who has witnessed the beginnings of an alien invasion of Earth. For two seasons and 43 episodes he did everything he could to warn others, and to foil the plans of the aliens.

In 2008 and 2009, CBS/Paramount released each season of the show on DVD, separately, but the studio never made both of them available together in a single package. Now that's changing! CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution have announced this week that on June 5th they will finally put out The Invaders - The Complete Series as a single DVD package. The 12-disc set will be priced at $39.98 SRP, and package art can be seen below. As you can see in the quoted studio description at the top, it includes plenty of extras. As someone who caught the show on the original DVD releases, I can highly recommend this's a great one to binge watch! You can pre-order it from right away, too:
