Lips were sealed among Lost's cast and crew at the TCA press event for the show this Tuesday. Speculation has run rampant about developments for the sixth and final season, but beyond a few tantalizing tidbits, nothing was confirmed.
"The story of the sixth season very specifically has to go back to the beginning," said series co-creator Damon Lindelof. "We're trying to show the audience the 'Before,' so they have some sense of what [the characters] used to be and who they are now, so you really get a sense of how far they've come."
"Harold Perrineau will be back on the show this year," added series co-creator Carlton Cuse. "Also Libby, Cynthia Watros, will be also back for the final season. So finally your Libby questions will be answered."
"No they will not," Lindelof responded with a smile.
The cast expressed warm feelings about their experience with Lost and regrets about it coming to an end. Lindelof stressed, however, that the decision to end the show was the right one from a creative perspective.
"I'm just feeling a tremendous amount of gratitude at the idea that we're getting to end something while anybody still cares and while we still love each other, as opposed to everybody saying 'it's about time.' This is sort of a once-in-a-career experience for a show that is still performing for the network. To allow us to end it is a tremendous gift."
Lost's final season premieres on February 2nd on ABC.
