UK Fans will be a little behind us here in the US. Sky1 has announced the premiere date for LOST season 6:
THE FINAL SEASON OF LOST RETURNS TO SKY1 HD ON FEBRUARY 5TH AT 9PM.
Questions will be answered as the world’s most talked about TV show arrives for its sixth and final season. It’s been six years since ventured through the looking glass and gleefully entered Lost’s masterfully woven web. Now we prepare to be thrilled and saddened as the TV phenomenon enters its climactic final chapter.
Season 5 of Lost left us hanging as Juliet detonated the bomb and potentially changed the islanders’ fate. Ben killed Jacob at the request of a resurrected Locke and we were introduced to the enigmatic ‘man in black’.
Meanwhile, mysteries from series past are begging to be resolved, including the strange set of numbers (4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42), the four-toed statue and, of course, the smoke monster. Not to mention the overarching questions that surround the series as a whole: what exactly is the island? And why were Jack (Matthew Fox), Kate (Evangeline Lilly), Sawyer (Josh Holloway) and the rest of the castaways ‘selected’ in the first place?
In keeping with time-honoured tradition, series creators JJ Abrams, Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof are remaining tight-lipped. When asked about Lost’s ending, Lindelof sits teasingly on the fence: “Some people will think it’s enormously satisfying. Other people will think it’s not satisfying enough. It all depends on the way that you watch the show” (USA Today). Viewers will be tantalised to discover that a few familiar faces will be returning, namely Emilie de Ravin’s Claire, who vanished without a trace in season four, and Dominic Monaghan’s Charlie and Ian Somerhalder’s Boone, both of whom we apparently saw die in seasons four and two, respectively. All will be revealed as Lost makes its final voyage.
Expect the unexpected.
