Yay, the creators of LOST have come to an agreement with ABC to end the show after 48 more episodes (three more seasons):
“Lost” executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, who have been vocal about setting up an endgame for the show, have signed on to stay for the remainder of the series’ run. …Lindelof said having the end point in sight was “incredibly liberating. Like we’ve been running a marathon and we actually know where the finish line is for the first time.”Lindelof and Cuse said they’ve had “a road map for the series with all the major mythological milestones and the ending in place” for awhile. “What we didn’t know was how long we had to play the story out,” Cuse said. “By defining the endpoint we can now really map out the rest of the series in confidence.” … “We sort of view ‘Lost’ as a mosaic,” Cuse said. “Now there are only 48 more tiles that go into that mosaic, and we’re figuring out, along with all the other writers, exactly where they all go.”
Why am I repeating this, I don’t know. I guess I just am satisfied by this news.
