Less Answers, More Spiritual Whatnot, and More 'Lost' After Season 6?
Less Answers, More Spiritual Whatnot, and More 'Lost' After Season 6?
Surely you have more Lost-related questions than I do.  And surely you'll be disappointed just a bit.

The folks at Pop Distillery went to the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle, and caught up with Lost executive producers Carlton Cuse, Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.  Actually, more of a panel.  And, well, the one guarantee that they have is this: when the sixth and final season finally ends, not all questions will be answered.

Well, don't fret, they do have a point.  Sometimes, Cuse said, not knowing the whole story is better--more fulfilling, he says--than giving every detail away in the end.  From where I am, it seems we'd have to find out a bit more before we figure it all out, and then we're happy because we figured it out ourselves, at least until someone else proposes another theory.

But if it's any consolation, they have an idea, more or less, about what questions they will answer in the last set of episodes.  What questions those are, of course, I don't know them.  I don't even have questions, if you've been following my Lost watching...

Anyway.  The three spilled a few more bits on that panel.  One, the final season will have a pretty spiritual bent.  Two, they already have an idea about what the final shot will look like.  Three, expect many faces to return--yeah, we know that, yeah.

And then there's the post-Lost future, which more or less amounts to nothing.  There are no plans to push the franchise after the final episode airs.  But they can't tell, either: Cuse thinks the Lost franchise is a powerful franchise, and Disney would be foolish not to take note of that.  A movie?  Maybe not.  At least not involving Cuse and Lindelof and the rest.

Mickey Mouse lost on an unknown island?  Now that's an active imagination.
