It's Official: Lost Finds Extra Hour... But There's a Twist!

It's official, Ausholes!

I can now confirm what I first teased earlier this week: Team Darlton has sealed a deal with ABC to bring us an extra hour of Lost this season.

But there's a twist.

Lost isn't the only ABC hit experiencing an unexpected growth spurt. Sources confirm to me exclusively that Grey's Anatomy will also expand its season by an hour

ABC Makes Up for Lost 'Lost'

Final seasons extended to make up for shorter run this year

May 9, 2008

'Lost's' Evangeline Lilly, Naveen Andrews and Josh Holloway

ABC is making official what the producers of "Lost" have been saying for some time: Fans of the show won't be shortchanged any episodes.

The show will film 17 episodes for each of its final two seasons, instead of the 16 initially planned when ABC and the show's creative team hammered out a three-seasons-and-that's-it deal last year.

The extra shows in 2009 and 2010 will make up for the two episodes lost to the writers' strike this season, meaning the total number of episodes (48) isn't changing.

Executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have been saying as much for a while. In a conference call with reporters last month, Lindelof said they expected to deliver the two shows they couldn't this year in the future.

"I think it means there will be 34 left," he said. "We did 14 this year because of the strike, but we promised 16, which means we owe two more hours."

"We're not actually shortening the total number of episodes," Cuse added. "We're just deferring them into seasons five and six."

"Lost" has three episodes left this season, all of which Lindelof and Cuse consider part of the season finale. The first part airs Thursday, May 15, and the conclusion airs as a two-hour show on May 29. The show is taking May 22 off to make room for a two-hour "Grey's Anatomy" finale.

Lost's Bosses Dish on "Season of Josh Holloway"

Sat., Jan. 17, 2009 11:15 AM PST by Kristin Dos Santos and Jennifer Godwin

Lost is back in less than a week!

And to promote the best little island show since, well, ever (sorry, Gilligan and Ricardo Montalban), the show's big bosses Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse just showed critics episode three of the new fifth season and ponied up scoop!

So what do you need to know? Well, for starters, the time travel-kookiness is off the charts in season five.

But that's OK. They're making it up to us.

How? Well, according to Carlton: "It's the season of Josh." Yes, to counteract the hard-core sci-fi/physics/time-travel-loop-the-loop stuff this year (Daniel Faraday knows all, and boy does he tell all), the writers are making sure that Sawyer (Josh Holloway) and his time-travel-loathing testy redneck temperament are front and center to soften the blow. His shirtless chest will also be featured prominently, but let's focus, shall we?

So what extra Sawyer goodness are we getting this season? Read on for that, a sneak peek at episode two and some tease-y goodies about episode three!

According to Carlton, "Sawyer has a lot to do this year." Given that there is so much heavy myth arc development going on, they felt it was important to balance out that element with some character-centric stuff.

"It's important that Sawyer is not a huge fan of time travel," says Carlton, noting that Sawyer will deliver many lines throughout the season criticizing time travel as a concept in general and as an influence on his own life. "Josh is doing a lot of amazing work this year. You could say this was the season of Josh Holloway."

And, yes, the season of time travel. "It is a veritable minefield to do time travel," Carlton admits. "But it's also incredibly exciting. We didn't want to have season five just be a stall. We're going to take some risks, but if we make some mistakes, that's OK. We would rather take the risk and continue to do exciting storytelling."

"Hopefully as season five unfolds you'll realize that time traveling was in the DNA of the show for quite some time," Damon explains. "This time travel reflects a plunge toward the [series] ending."

Meanwhile, when asked if we'll see more of Nestor Carbonell (Richard Alpert) this season, Carlton says, "You will," while Damon reveals, "He does not wear mascara. No eyeliner." "The true mystery of Lost," adds Carlton, "is Nestor wearing makeup." (Hee.)

And what about the always intriguing and haunting Benjamin Linus (Michael Emerson)? "Who Ben works for is probably Ben," Damon says. "But the fact is that he is obviously involved with other people, as you've seen in the first three episodes."

"You will see more of [Charles] Widmore," adds Damon, "and part of what we hoped to give the audience this year is some greater sense of the island's history."

So what about the Losties that appear to be no longer living? "You will definitely see Jin this year," promises Carlton. "Claire is not a series regular this year, but her story is by no means over. You will see more of her in season six. Jin will be back. We're not saying he is currently alive, though."

'Lost' will last a little longer

By Rick Porter

June 29, 2009 2:12 PM

If you're already preparing yourself for the departure of "Lost" in the spring of 2010, take heart. The series will go on a little longer than expected.

OK, it's only one hour longer, but we'll take what we can get.

An ABC rep confirmed Monday (June 29) that the final season of "Lost" will run 18 hours. That's an hour more than initially planned, although where that extra time fits in -- although a two-hour series finale seems pretty much like a given at this point -- is far from determined yet. "Lost" begins filming season six in Hawaii later this summer.

Considering the possibly game-changing events at the end of season five -- wherein Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell) detonated a nuclear warhead in an effort to hit the Island's reset button and, in theory, prevent Oceanic 815 from crashing in the first place -- any extra time the show's creative team wants to take unraveling what happened could be welcome.

When ABC and executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof agreed to an end date for the show after season six, the network asked for three 16-episode seasons to wrap things up. The 2007-08 writers strike messed up that schedule somewhat, and only 14 episodes made it onto the air in the fourth season.

Last season ran 17 episodes (with the two-hour finale counting as two), and the final season was set to do the same thing. Adding the extra hour to the final season will bring the total number of episodes in the final three years to 49.

Do you love LOST so much that you just have to work it into every aspect of your life? Well, we here at TVOvermind often feel the same way. With less than 40 days left until LOST returns to take care of all your LOST withdrawals, and the heart of the Christmas season upon us, we've put together a collection of LOST-themed Christmas carols to sing around your Christmas tree (that is, if you are one of the many who celebrate Christmas).These Christmas carols range the gamut from funny and tongue-in-cheek to sad, but all are sure to give you a good chuckle and memories of some of the LOST memory highlights from the past 5 seasons. Some of our favorites include "Smokey the Monster" (to the tune of "Frosty the Snowman"), "Island Wonderland" (the obligatory but chuckle-worthy rendition of "Winter Wonderland"), and "God Rest Ye Island Casualties" (set to "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen") which remembers many of the biggest island deaths (and some not so large), and looks forward to the potential "reset" in season 6.

Each carol fits to the Christmas tune that inspired it, so grab a nice cup of hot chocolate, throw in a candy cane, light up the fire, and sing along with these LOST Christmas carols:

Enjoy these songs, and if you celebrate, have a Merry Christmas.
