This article's subject relates to Season 5 of 24.This is a production article written from an out-of-universe perspective

24: Season 5 was released on DVD in the United States and Canada on December 5, 2006. It contains all 24 episodes from Season 5, audio commentary on selected episodes, deleted scenes, and several hours of bonus features on the seventh disc. All episodes are presented in anamorphic widescreen (1.78:1).


Season 5's packaging differed from previous sets in that the inside of the set is comprised of four slim DVD cases, each holding two discs each, with the fourth case holding disc 7, as opposed to the foldout casing seen in previous DVD releases. The earlier seasons were re-released with similar packaging on May 22, 2007. The Season 5 cases' pictures are as follows:

Bonus discs[]

Three dealer-exclusive bonus discs were released with this set when it was initially released:

  • Target - "24 and the War on Terror: Can Truth Learn from Fiction?" - a panel discussion about terrorism, politics and how relevant 24 is to the real world
  • Best Buy - "Keepin' it Real: The Stunts & Special Effects on 24" - the producers and special effects crew discuss the effects on the show
  • Wal-Mart - "Changing All the Rules" - the making of 24 from the perspective of the producers and executive producers

These three featurettes were later collected together on a DVD packaged with 24: The Official Companion: Season 6.
