Lost Live concert

Nearly 14 years after the premiere of ABC’s mega-hit drama LOST, showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse reunited at the John Ansin Ford Amphitheatre in Los Angeles this past weekend for We Have to Go Back: The LOST Concert 2018. They were on hand to introduce composer Michael Giacchino, arguably the most valuable player of the entire series. Giacchino conducted many of the show’s most memorable songs over the course of the evening and even debuted a brand new track from the upcoming film Bad Times at the El Royale.

We’ve compiled some of the highlights from the event into a video below. Watch as surprise guest cast members read sections from the show’s script, Lindelof and Cuse talk about their unorthodox practice of writing Giacchino’s name into the episode scripts, and much more. Read More »

ABC, the show’s original network home, gave the show the axe this summer due to rising budget concerns and a drop in ratings, but Netflix spends money with the best of ’em and doesn’t make any of its viewership numbers public, so they don’t have to worry about either of those issues. Sounds like a win-win for everyone.

But if you’ve ever been curious to have the LOST finale explained by actress Evangeline Lilly, who played scrappy criminal Kate Austen in all six seasons of the series, you’re in luck: Lilly took the stage at Dragon Con this past weekend and answered a fan question that involved her laying out an excellent interpretation of the show’s controversial ending.
