Finally… we have a date. February 2nd will be the premiere of LOST’s final season. Assuming there are no weeks off, and LOST’s two hour finale is counted as two of the eighteen hours we will get, the finale will be May 18th, 2010.
Sweeps season is April 29th to May 26. I would assume this means the rumored two-week hiatus will not happen since I’m sure ABC is expecting tons of stray LOST fans to tune in for the final reveals – but we’ll have to wait on that to be sure.
Here is the official word from ABC:
ABC announces the premiere of the sixth and final season of “Lost,” with a special all-night event on Tuesday, February 2. A recap special will kick off the night from 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET, followed by the much anticipated two-hour premiere from 9:00-11:00 p.m.
The series will then air in its regular time period – Tuesday nights from 9:00-10:00 p.m., ET – beginning the following week, on February 9.
