Lost Secrets Held Tight

Producers and cast keep quiet about the show's final season

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.

No if's, and's or but's.....Nothing has changed TV more then Lost in the pas 2 decades (so yes, Lost is better then BSG in my view).

Cannot wait for this final season.

I've heard if you look hard enough on the web you'll find all the spoilers or at least most of them...I want to be surprised so I'll avoid all that.

I just finished season 5 this past week and I can't tell you how happy I am that we are past the living in the 70's show staring Sawyer and Juliet.  My wife agreed with me that was a serious low point in season 5, except for a few characters no one had anything to do in the middle of the season. We were left with Sawyer trying to hold onto his live in Dharmaville and it slowed the overall story down.  It wasn't till we got past that crap the story picked up again.  This last season should be nothing but answernig questions otherwise they'll be forced to answer everything in a two hour finale and that didn't work out well for the X-Files, it won't work for Lost either.

Though I agree this is the best show on TV right now I would be hard pressed to say it changed TV...hell, Firefly was doing the flashback episodes before Lost was even someone's idea.   But that is a matter of opinion of course.

Hey, I was reading that Obama is giving his state of the Union speech on February 2nd and that is going to F up the Lost schedule. 

Something all us Lost fans should be aware of...if you have DVR set for premiere night, be aware of that otherwise you'll miss it.

Thanks for the heads up Hobbs.  I usually PVR the US stations here in Toronto but hopefully I can just hop over to CTV.  They probably won't be showing the address.

If Obamma really wants to stay President, he'd be smart and move his SoTU adress.. A LOT of Lost fans are up in arms about it, heh


Tonebone 1/13/2010 11:49:44 AM

I've heard multiple assurances that the SoTU will not interrupt Lost. But we shall see

xpaladinx45 1/13/2010 12:07:35 PM

Yes, supposedly they will not have teh SoTU on Feb. 2nd as first reported, thankfully.

Anyway, oh lovable LOST, how we've missed you.  I'm anxious for this final season to begin, however I will be sad to see it gone once it's all over.  The one show that is a must for me to watch the night it airs (i DVR everything)

Cannot Wait!!!  Although, part of me wants to wait, since it'll be closer to the end :'-(

Obama was being interviewed last week, and someone brought up the fact that the state of the union may interupt Lost.  Obama responded by saying not to worry he will not pre-empt lost.

jedibanner 1/13/2010 1:55:14 PM

It's on CNN...Lost will air as scheduled and Obama will talk later.
