'Lost's Final Season To Begin In February With Move To Tuesday

ABC has announced that 'Lost's much anticipated final season will begin on February 2, 2010.

The network will mark premiere night with a three hour event starting at 8 PM EST. An hour-long recap will air before the two hour premiere at 9 PM.

One notable change from last season is that the show will make Tuesday nights at 9 PM its home for the sixth season.

The move was necessitated because the alphabet finally has a successful comedy night on Wednesday nights, led by 'Modern Family', for the first time in a number of years and they didn't want to mess with a good thing. It's thought that 'V' may take over the timeslot following 'Lost'.

Meanwhile, executive producer Damon Lindelof confirms we probably won't see any new footage until the season premiere -- or, at least, that's the plan for now.

"That is the marketing strategy that we are trying to impose upon our masters," explains Lindelof. "Well, I can't unequivocally say that we'll be able to hold the embargo up until the actual premiere, but it's pretty cool that we're not showing anything as late as November, so we'll see."

"I think once the show starts, once we're back on, then we'll start showing people what we're up to, but I think even a single scene from the show would tip what it is we're doing this year. What it is we're doing this year is different from what we've done in other years."

As for whether viewers will see everything neatly tied up by the end of the final season: "I think that there are some Lost mysteries that we're not even aware are mysteries. That's the thing."

"People ask us questions and I'm like, 'What are you talking about?' Like, 'Are we ever going to find out who murdered Scott?' And I was like, 'Ethan murdered him.' And they're like, 'Well, but did he?' I'm like, 'Yes! Yes he did!'"

"So for the mysteries that we acknowledge as mysteries, they will be answered. But then there are mysteries that should never be solved. Then there are things like the midichlorian issue, which is essentially, was anyone really saying, 'How does the Force work?' You know?"

"We just sort of accepted that it works. So I think that there are some mysteries like, 'Why is the island an island?' that aren't mysteries to me, because that's what it is."
