Lost - The Final Season Premiere

9:30pm Wednesday, February 10 on TV2

The wait is over, as the thrilling premiere of Lost: The Final Season begins, tonight on TV2.

Since Oceanic Flight 815 crash landed in 2004, the mysteries of the island, with it’s time travelling capabilities, deadly smoke monster, and esoteric indigenous population, have intrigued viewers everywhere. Now, it’s time for answers – in the climactic final season of Lost.

In the preceding season’s finale, an impostor in the form of John Locke (Terry O’Quinn) had brutally killed the mysterious island leader, Jacob (Mark Pellegrino) – and his dying words heralded the arrival of a sinister new threat.

Elsewhere, the ‘incident’ was raging – a severe electromagnetic reaction caused by the Dharma Initiative’s digging – and Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell) was dragged into the pit, leaving Sawyer (Josh Holloway) heartbroken. In the final seconds, she forcibly detonated an atomic bomb in an effort to stop Flight 815 from crashing on the island in the first place. But did it work?

Original cast member Josh Holloway is hoping the final season will allow his character a sense of closure, as he tells TV Guide USA.

“After six years, I love this character. He’s a living, breathing part of me. And I think he deserves a second chance to rectify some of the things he’s done. It would be a shame if he were not given that opportunity.”

Holloway says that he will look back at his time on the hit drama series, which films in Hawaii, with great fondness.

“It’s been an honour and a pleasure to take this journey with this group of people, and with this calibre of writing,” he explains. “What it’s done for me as an artist and a human being is priceless. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.”

As the filming on Lost comes to an end, Holloway also reveals that the atmosphere on set has been one of camaraderie and nostalgia, as the cast and crew prepare to say their goodbyes.

“There’s an energy here now that is reminiscent of the first year, which was so magical.”

With so many threads to pull together, tune in for what’s sure to be a jaw-dropping and thrilling resolution to the global smash-hit series, as Lost: The Final Season comes to TV2.
