ABC has just announced the upcoming release of both the sixth season DVD of Lost as well as the complete series box set. Among the more notable features included in Lost: The Complete Collection are:
- Every episode in the series (Seasons 1 through 6)
- Over 30hrs of Season 1-6 Bonus materials (previously released materials from Season 1-5 and the all-new Season 6 bonus material)
- See You In Another Life, Brotha – Unlocks the mysteries of this season’s intriguing flash sideways.
- A LOST Blu-ray & DVD exclusive – Go deeper into the world of LOST with a much-anticipated new chapter of the island’s story from Executive Producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse.
Likewise, the set comes loaded with the customary audio commentaries, behind-the-scenes featurettes, bloopers, and deleted scenes. I believe the “new chapter of the island’s story” is this 12-14 minute epilogue that cast member Michael Emerson teased, which I am very eager to see. Both sets will be available on Blu-ray and DVD August 24, 2010. Check out the full press release and high resolution images of the artwork and box set after the jump:

“…TV’s most gripping serial.” – The Boston Globe
Lost follows the lives of crash survivors of Oceanic Airlines flight 815, on a mysterious and apparently supernatural tropical island. Their survival is continuously jeopardized by inexplicable entities, including a polar bear, an unseen monster that wanders the jungle and the island’s malicious occupants known as the “Others”. Forced to depend on each other to endure, the diverse group of survivors are bound by menacing secrets and complicated interrelationships, with the truth behind each character slowly revealed through the seasons. The series regularly stars Matthew Fox (Jack Shephard), Evangeline Lilly (Kate Austen), Josh Holloway (James ‘Sawyer” Ford), Naveen Andrews (Sayid Jarrah), Jorge Garcia (Hugo ‘Hurley’ Reyes), Terry O’Quinn (John Locke), Michael Emerson (Ben Linus), Daniel Dae Kim (Jin Kwon), Yunjin Kim (Sun Kwon), Nester Carbonell (Richard Alpert) and Emile de Ravin (Claire Littleton).
