[Obviously, if you've never seen Lost and are waiting until the entire series is available on DVD, stop reading now]
Let the official countdown begin. In 74 days, Lost one of TV’s best shows will begin its final season. Starting with a two-hour season premiere on February 2, 2010 at 9pm E.T., we begin (or hope) to unravel the island’s final mysteries: the smoke monster, time jumping, the statue, the temple, the island’s healing power, why the dead appear to the living, and so many other questions. It’s all come to this and 74 days seems like an eternity and yet by the time the series finale airs sometime in May 2010, it will feel like it was over too fast.
After its two-hour premiere (which will follow the inevitable yet likely helpful one-hour recap show), Lost will begin airing at its regular time slot of 9-10pm ET on Tuesday nights beginning the following week, February 9th. So grab your constant, blow the hatch, and get ready for the end. If you’d like to read the press release ABC sent us, hit the jump:
