Lost TV Show To End In 2010

ABC has agreed to let the producers of Lost set an expiration date for the series: three years in the future, Variety reported.

The series will wrap after the production of 48 additional episodes that will be divided into three, shortened 16-episode seasons. The final episode, the show’s 119th, will air during the 2009-’10 season, the trade paper reported.

Executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse had wanted Lost to end after two more seasons, but agreed to the three shortened seasons as a condition of signing new multiyear deals with the ABC Television Studio, which produces the series. They’re essentially still getting their wish: The 48 episodes they’ll produce over the next three years is the same number the show produced during its first two seasons, Variety reported. ABC plans to air the shorter, 16-episode arcs without repeats; it’s unclear when the series would return next season.

Cuse and Lindelof wanted an end date in order to mollify critics of the show who worried producers were simply spinning their wheels as they worked through the show’s layer upon layer of mystery.

Lost’s end game is expected to kick into high gear later this month with the broadcast of the third-season finale, which is expected to change the show dramatically.
