Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced today that Arrow: The Complete Seventh Season and The Flash: The Complete Fifth Season will both be available on DVD and Blu-ray in the second half of August, giving fans plenty of time to binge the series before they return in the fall. The seventh and penultimate season of Arrow will be available on physical home media on August 20. The Flash will follow up the next week, releasing its DVD and Blu-rays of season five on August 27. Each of them will contain all three parts of the "Elseworlds" crossover between Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl on their Blu-ray releases.
In addition to their complete seasons and the crossover episodes, both releases will include deleted scenes, gag reels, Comic Con panels.
