HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (October 22, 2009) - The classic, award-winning spy show returns with a bang when MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: THE FINAL TV SEASON makes its explosive DVD debut as a collectible set on November 3rd from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment. 

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: THE FINAL SEASON offers a stunning picture and superior sound.  The brilliant picture quality was made possible by using the original camera negative to do an HD transfer and extensive digital restoration.  A brand new 5.1 audio mix was performed using the original audio elements for brilliant sounding audio.  The set also offers TV purists a second audio stream featuring the original mono tracks. 

The original inspiration behind the blockbuster film franchise, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE chronicles the action-packed adventures of the Impossible Missions Force (IMF) - a group of extraordinary spies -- as they take on the most hazardous of espionage missions against evil.   The final season features 22 edge-of-the-seat episodes, each beginning with the famous tape-recorded message outlining the latest secret assignment for the IMF team to embark upon. 
MISSION IMPOSSIBLE stars an iconic, award-winning cast including Peter Graves in his Golden Globe®-winning* role, Greg Morris and Lynda Day George in their Emmy®-nominated** roles, as well as Peter Lupus and Barbara Anderson. 

Originally premiering in 1966 as part of CBS's first primetime lineup in full color, during its run, the classic and suspenseful spy series garnered three Emmy® Awards, two Golden Globes® and a Grammy® for best original score in a movie or TV show. MISSION IMPOSSIBLE drew in a number of notable guest stars with its final season including Robert Conrad, William Shatner, Claude Akins, Pernell Roberts, Robert Reed, Dean Stockwell and Broadway legend Robert Goulet.
