After the debacle caused by last year’s writer’s strike, ABC’s hit show Lost will commence its fifth season on January 21, 2009 with a three-hour premiere consisting of a clip-show and two back-to-back new episodes.
The series was originally planned to end during the 2009-2010 season. Beginning with the 2007–2008 television season, the final 48 episodes would have been aired as three seasons with 16 episodes each, with Lost concluding in its sixth season. Due to the writers strike, the fourth season featured 14 episodes, and seasons five and six will have 17 episodes each.
I have loosely followed the show since its start, and have enjoyed it. It seems to be pretty deep, and you have to watch an episode several times to get all the information in it. I know several people (especially my parents) who have eagerly awaited the new season. I have no doubt that the events in the next two seasons will be more entralling than the previous four seasons!
