'Batman: The Animated Series' is coming to Blu-ray in 2018

While big-screen development for the Dark Knight continues, fans have at least one known quantity to look forward next year to as the classic Batman: The Animated Series will be remastered for release on Blu-Ray, according to an announcement from Warner Bros.at the New York Comic-Con.

The panel also included Conroy, Tara Strong (Batgirl in The New Batman Adventures) and producers Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett.

The collection was announced during the "Batman: The Animated Series 25th Anniversary" panel, with long-time animation publicist Gary Miereanu informing the crowd. While no formal release date has been set for the Blu-ray collection, Miereanu said it would be out "later in the year" in 2018. We don't even know if it will be released in volumes like the DVD or it will be released as a singular Blu-Ray.

Kevin Conroy returned to voice the Caped Crusader in the animated film Batman and Harley Quinn, which was released just last month. (The latter episodes were released as "Volume 4" of the DVD sets.) We've reached out to Warner Bros. for more details, and we'll update this article with any information we receive.

Batman: The Animated Series consists of 85 episodes total and will likely be accompanied by special features in the Blu-ray release.

Collectors often bemoan Hollywood's tendency to "double-dip" with multiple home video releases for movies and TV shows.

Batman: The Animated Series debuted in 1992, and stands as one of the most acclaimed adaptations of comic books to another medium, including winning four Emmy Awards.
