Lost execs want fixed end

“Lost to end” – I’m sure you’ve seen a variation of that title all over the Internet today, but there is really no need to worry. At the “Evening with Lost” and the recent press events, one of the big points of discussion was that Damon and Carlton are trying to convince ABC that Lost needs a fixed ending.

That doesn’t mean that they want Lost to end any time soon, it would just make their job a whole lot easier if they knew how many seasons and episodes they have at their disposal to tell the story that they set out to tell. So if it was up to the writers and creative execs, when would Lost end?

During the “Evening with Lost”, Carlton Cuse said that around 100 episodes in total would be pretty nice and in an interview with Michael Ausiello, Damon Lindelof expressed the same thoughts:

“We knew Season 1 was going to be the introduction, Season 2 was going to be into the hatch, Season 3 was going to be the Others… I don’t want to tell you what Season 4 is gonna be.

And then there was a shortened wrap-up season that would put you somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 episodes. At the end of season 4, we will have produced 93 hours of the show, and I imagine that would be very close to where it would end ideally.”

Since we’re currently around episode 50, we would be half way through the ideal length of the Lost storyline, so there is still a lot of fun, drama and mysteries left.

It was also mentioned that next season, ABC are considering to run the entire Lost season of 22 episodes non-stop from January to May 2008.

    why is every consecutive season getting shorter?

  2. Andreas says:

    I wouldn’t say that it’s been decided that season 4 will be 22 episodes, it might as well be 23 or 24. It probably depends on how many episodes the production crew are able to make in time for them to be aired.

    George Lucas is making a Live action Star Wars television series that is suppose to come out in 2008 if Lost ends after the fourth season in 2008 that explains everything Damon and them just want to quit working for ABC so they will be available to work for George Lucas. lol

  4. Andreas says:

    Haha, I think you have uncovered their secret plan patience.

    Damon is a Star Wars fan I think, or maybe it was JJ.

  5. patience says:

    I believe they are both huge fans of the star wars saga. I knew you would get a kick out of that andreas. lol

  6. Andreas says:

    Believe it or not, I’m not really a Star Wars or Star Trek fan. Darth Vader is cool, but other than that I’m just not that into it.

  7. patience says:

    yeah well star trek sucks but i thought you would think it was funny in general.

  8. Andreas says:

    I did, I did, so mission accomplished my friend 😉
