For Lost fanatics and Lost bashers alike, conversations in the years after the hit series’ finale have been largely negative, with relatively few walking away from the show without complaints. And a writer's alleged comments certainly won't be changing that.
Despite being critically acclaimed and garnering huge ratings throughout its run, ABC’s Lost ended after six seasons on the network. In the time since, its crew has moved on to bigger and bolder projects, but its fans have not forgotten how invested they were in the series. Luckily for those fans, Lost executive producer Carlton Cuse recently stated that he believes another story in the Lost world is “inevitable.”
Not long after word has come down that CW would not be moving forward with a second season of The Tomorrow People, Mark Pellegrino has already found his next role. The Lost alum will be reuniting with Carlton Cuse for A&E's planned adaptation of the French drama The Returned.
You would think that when you star in a huge hit television series that you would know how the show came to an end. Apparently, this is not so if you’re Dominic Monaghan. The actor who starred in Lost admitted today that he has not actually seen the finale and doesn’t know how the show ended.
A&E announced they won't bother going through the pilot process with Bates Motel and instead opted to move ahead with a 10 episode order. The network first announced the prequel to Alfred Hitchcock's seminal slasher Psycho at the beginning of the year and with Lost's Carlton Cuse and Friday Night Light's Kelly Ehrin on board, the show is now going straight to series.
When he isn't busy serving as producer on films like Prometheus and the upcoming Star Trek sequel, Damon Lindelof can occasionally be found entertaining his thousands of Twitter followers with his random 140-character blurbs. His last contribution to television came in the form of an ABC show called Lost. You may have heard of that one.
Lindelof's good-natured dig at his own show apparently resonated quite a bit with some of his fellow show creators. Soon both Bill "Scrubs" Lawrence and Shonda "Grey's Anatomy" Rhimes weighed in with their own regrets about which shows didn't work, or didn't work as well as they could have.
Even if you never play the lotto, you've almost certainly heard about the Mega Millions lotto drawing that will net the lucky winners a total of $656 million. Former Lost showrunner Damon Lindelof has even thrown his own hat into the ring and purchased a ticket…using Hurley's cursed lottery numbers. Lindelof tweeted a pic of the ticket yesterday.
For many fans sad to see the end of Lost in 2010, Fringe has become the show that filled the island-shaped hole in their lives. Now Fringe is adding another Lost connection to its collection, with actor Henry Ian Cusick, who played Desmond on the mystical island drama, set to appear in an upcoming episode.
Damon Lindelof is one of my favorite TV-related tweeters out there. He’s funny, he has interesting things to say and he doesn’t abuse the retweet button. He also occasionally shares interesting links. Today, the former Lost executive producer shared a link to an article that lists how certain Lost characters would make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Daniel Roebuck isn’t the only former Lost cast member set to make an appearance on NBC’s Grimm. Titus Welliver a.k.(to Lost fans)a. the Man in Black, will also be playing a role in the series, though from the sound of it, gold may be his color of choice. In case you have Once Upon A Time on the brain, that isn’t a Midas reference.
Lost changed course so often throughout its six-season run that it's impossible to find an episode that perfectly represents the show as a whole. But if you love Lost, you love particular things about it, be they certain characters, the especially good flashbacks or even Sawyer's best nicknames. And for me "Lockdown," the 17th episode of season 2, has all the best parts of Lost in one place
Lost fans will appreciate this bit of casting news, as will those of you who watched FlashForward. Word is, British actress Sonya Walger has been cast to play a pretty big role in USA’s upcoming series Common Law.
Since June, the happy couple has settled down to a life spent promoting Courtney’s new music single and some Baywatch-esque modeling photos. The 16 going on 35-year-old certainly has some high aspirations for herself, but as they aren’t panning out quickly, Hutchison and Stodden have moved forward with plan b. According to an interview with Australia’s The Morning Show, the two are in talks with producers to do their own reality program. Stodden has helpfully added: “Expect it to be a reality show like no other.”
