Lost VI: The Final Season
« on: May 01, 2009, 12:14:58 PM »
With the season five finale just two weeks away, and the show completely retconned and awesome again, I'll start up this season six thread where I'll talk to myself about rumors during the long ass wait.


Quote
On May 7, 2007, ABC Entertainment President Stephen McPherson announced that Lost will end during the 2009–2010 season with a "highly anticipated and shocking finale." "We felt that this was the only way to give Lost a proper creative conclusion," McPherson said. Beginning with the 2007–2008 television season, the final 48 episodes would have been aired as three seasons with 16 episodes each, with Lost concluding in its sixth season. Due to the writers' strike, the fourth season featured 14 episodes, and Seasons 5 and 6 will have 17 episodes each.

Executive producers Lindelof and Cuse stated that they "always envisioned Lost as a show with a beginning, middle, and end," and that by announcing when the show would end that viewers would "have the security of knowing that the story will play out as we've intended." Lindelof and Cuse stated that securing the 2010 series-end date "was immensely liberating" and helped the series rediscover its focus. Lindelof noted, "We're no longer stalling." Matthew Fox stated that he is the only cast member who knows the ending of the show.

Well, if they do, at least it won't be as surprising.  There's no way they can do worse than the first four seasons.

It's been confirmed: the sixth and final season of Lost will have one more hour than the fifth season did. However, like the fifth season, there will be sixteen episodes, meaning that the premiere of the sixth season will be two hours long, making it the only two hour non-finale episode of the series.

This information was released by actor Matthew Fox, and later confirmed by representatives at ABC. Much thanks to DarkUfo for announcing this.

As I'm sure all of you are, I'm glad that we have one more hour to sort out the many intricate mysteries still remaining on Lost, as well as to further develop and resolve the fates of the many characters the show revolves around.

I'm really excited about the sixth season.  The fifth season was like a whole new show...I loved it.

Nobody on Lost is going to run out of money anytime soon.

Uh-oh... A bit of a blow.  He's shaped the revitalization of the show...


Quote
Brian K. Vaughan, a writer of some of season four and five's more memorable episodes, has left the show. The writer, known for his work in the comic world (such as his series Y: The Last Man) was confirmed to have left the show "for greener pastures" by Damon Lindelof during a recent Q&A session.

Vaughan first joined the show in late season three, writing "Catch-22." The next season, however, he returned for many more appearances, writing "Confirmed Dead," "Meet Kevin Johnson," and fan favorite "The Shape of Things to Come." Most recently, Vaughan wrote three episodes of season five: "The Little Prince," "Namaste," and "Dead Is Dead."

I suspect that Vaughan left to pursue writing a film or television adaptation of his graphic novel, Y: The Last Man (a Spanish version of which Hurley carried with him aboard Flight 316). He has stated that he prefers to write his own creations like Y: The Last Man and Ex Machina because he doesn't think he's the best at using his "voice" with company-owned characters. Whatever the reason, Vaughan was a great member of the writing staff, and we wish him well in whatever he pursues.

Well, there we go.  Lost is more important than Obama.  There's one to cement the show as a show of the decade -- it preempts the State of the Union.

And it's a three hour premiere!  My god...

Season six spoilers from the creators!

They say:

(1) We'll pick up right at the climax of season five.

(2) They won't answer all of the questions this season.

(3) "Many viewers will be angry."

Ah, the post-BSG world!
