The Oceanic Six is a group of characters who have safely gotten off the Island and are given flashforward episodes showing them coping with life after rescue, as opposed to the regular style of flashbacks.
At the end of Through the Looking Glass it is revealed that Jack Shephard and Kate Austen got off the Island. This introduced the idea that several of the survivors did manage to return home. In The Beginning of the End when it is revealed that Hugo "Hurley" Reyes has returned as well, he shouts that "he is one of the Oceanic Six", indicating that including himself, 6 people have returned from the Island. In The Economist it was revealed that Sayid Jarrah has also returned and that he is an assassin working for Benjamin Linus. In Eggtown, Aaron was revealed to be one of the Oceanic Six under the care of Kate, whom he refers to as "mommy". In Ji Yeon, Sun-Hwa Kwon is revealed as the final member of the Oceanic Six.
