‘Rick and Morty’ Season 4 Tops Disc Sales Charts

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Rick and Morty: Season 4 debuted at No. 1 on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended Sept. 26.

This marks the first time a season of the popular sci-fi cartoon from Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim animation block has topped the disc sales chart.

Following Sony Pictures’ Outlander: Season Five topping the chart the previous week, it also marks the very rare occurrence of the sales charts being topped for two weeks in a row by TV on disc titles.

The “Outlander” season slipped to No. 6 on the overall disc chart and No. 7 on the Blu-ray chart.

No. 2 on the overall disc chart, and No. 4 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart, was Disney’s perennial Halloween seller Hocus Pocus. It sold 88% as many copies as “Rick and Morty.”

The top new-release movie on the chart was Lionsgate’s The Secret: Dare to Dream, at No. 3 overall and No. 6 on the Blu-ray chart.
