The new season of Lost begins Monday! Kinda. ABC has (quietly) announced that it will begin posting its Lost “mobisodes” (originally intended to debut with Verizon Wireless customers) on Monday, Nov. 12, at abc.com. The series of two- to three-minute vignettes â€” collectively known as “Missing Pieces” â€” kicks off with “The Watch,” focusing on Matthew Fox’s character. The micro-stories aren’t deleted scenes â€” they’re newly-shot material that fits into the larger Lost saga; it’s up to the fans to figure out where they belong. A new Webisode will post each Monday.
That’s awesome news. With the WGA strike in effect, most shows have uncertain futures past December. Heroes is planning for a possible season (Volume II) finale on December 3 and LOST may not make it on the air in February as planned. With a shortened season of 16 episodes, producers Damon Lindelof and Carton Cuse want all 16 episodes to air together as planned, but have stated that it is ultimately ABC’s decision when and where LOST will air.
