Digital Bits is reporting on their Rumor Mill site that Warner Brothers is "already hard at work on the The O.C.: The Complete First Season, which will be released later this year as a 6 disc box set (featuring 27 episodes plus extras)". Since this is on their Rumour site and no confirmation has been given, the date may be changing. I think this is great from Warner Brothers part to release the DVD set in order to capitalize on the sucess and popularity of the show. Ever since I started watching the show last summer, I have been hooked.
