HBO’s supernatural crime drama The Outsider: The Complete First Season is based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel of the same name.

When 11-year-old Frankie Peterson’s body is found mutilated in the Georgia woods, police detective Ralph Anderson (Ben Mendelsohn, Black Sea) sets out to investigate – with eyewitnesses and physical evidence pointing to Terry Maitland (Jason Bateman, The Gift), a popular high school teacher, Little League coach, doting husband and father. While the case appears ironclad, Ralph is baffled by the emergence of contradictory evidence that places his suspect in a neighboring city at the time of the murder. The mysterious set of circumstances surrounding this horrifying crime leads Ralph, a seasoned cop still grieving the recent death of his own son, to bring in unorthodox private investigator Holly Gibney (Cynthia Erivo, Widows), whose uncanny abilities he hopes will help explain the unexplainable.

Accessorizing Season One’s 10 episodes, the Blu-ray and DVD editions of the show also include more than 40 minutes of behind-the-scenes bonus content including the all-new featurette “El Cuco: The Bab Yaga. The Outsider.”
