As if staring down the barrel of Omar’s shotgun wasn’t enough to make viewers’ knees quake, soon it’ll be in high definition. HBO said today that it has remastered all 60 episodes of its Peabody Award-winning drama The Wire. All five seasons of the gritty Baltimore series will be available in 16×9 full-frame HD for the first time, and HBO Signature will run them in order starting the day after Christmas. It’ll be the first time the ensemble drama starring Dominic West, Wendell Pierce, Idris Elba and dozens of others has aired on a linear channel since the show wrapped in 2008. The update also hits HBOGo on December 26. The Wire: The Complete Series also will be available for digital purchase starting January 5 and comes to Blu-ray in the summer.
