Highlighted by specific sequences involving stunts, on-set effects, intense moments and storyboards, fans can follow the journey that the characters go through along with a special look at the season finale.

The Collector's Edition will come packaged inside a cool mini post-dome replica of Chester's Mill plus a bonus disc with additional supplements: Stephen King Visits Big Jim's Car Dealership – Stephen King provides a set tour of Big Jim's Car Dealership and insight into how the city of Chester's Mill is inspired by a real town he used to live in, Bridgton, Maine; The Visual Effects of Under The Dome – Hear from the visual effects supervisor, Stephan Fleet, on what it takes to create the special effects seen on the show; Under The Dome: Executing The Finale – Comprised of behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast and crew, fans get an inside look at the making of a key scene from the dramatic series finale; and The Wilmington Pilot Premiere – The cast and creators hit the red carpet for stand-up interviews in Wilmington, N.C., for the pilot premiere of Under The Dome that also includes the city's Mayor declaring June 24th Dome Day and reactions from executive producers Brian K.
