Released by Entertainment One, "Monsters: The Complete Series" is a nine disc set that will feature all 72 episodes of the show. The series aired from 1988-91 with reruns on both the Syfy and Chiller networks. No special features have been announced at this time.

Richard P. Rubinstein of Laurel Entertainment, who also worked on "Tales From the Darkside" and numerous George A. Romero films, served as executive producer. Many talented actors were featured on the show, such as Tony Shaloub, Adrienne Barbeau, Steve Buscemi and Pam Grier, and also showcased stories adapted from the works of Robert Bloch and Stephen King.
