"Lost" Producers Offer More Tidbits About Next Season

"Lost" Producers Offer More Tidbits About Next Season

I think calling them "spoilers" might be a bit strong, but "Lost" writers/producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof recently provided SciFiWire with some pretty cool tidbits about the next season of the show. Some of these clues put to rest questions I had about the fourth season (i.e. will every episode feature flash forwards instead of flashbacks?), and others are just plain cool. If you want to remain completely, blissfully unaware of anything fourth season-related until February '08, don't read on! But if you're curious to find out the tidbits doled out by Cuse and Lindelof,

The actor playing Walt has gone through a bit of a growth spurt... and that's totally accounted for — they swear!
Lindelof: "We've always known Malcolm [David Kelley] was going to grow faster than we could shoot the show. And we planned for it. Trust us. Please trust us."

Jacob will be back, in some form or another.
"Picking his words carefully, executive producer Carlton Cuse said, 'Yes, we do know how Jacob will be depicted. Notice the careful wording of my answer. And no, Jacob did not appear before he was met by Locke.' Cuse also declined to say whether an actor had been chosen to portray the character."

Flash forwards will be used along with flashbacks.
"It's absolutely inevitable, not to migrate completely away from flashbacks, but at least to find a new paradigm for storytelling that changed up the nature of the show," Cuse said. "Moving forwards, you'll get a mix. Every week will hopefully be a guessing game as to not just who will be focused on, but when we're focusing on them. Flash-forwards will be a part of season four, yes."

Charlie is gone... but not forgotten.
"The reverberation of that death echoes right into the premiere of season four," Lindelof said.

but on the upside, when it does come on it will be new episodes back to back. NO REPEATS! so that's kind of cool.

The wait will be worth it, though, to get so many new episodes all in a row, without the awful interruption of repeats.

I'm so over this show. I "LOST" interest when abc was screwing with the show's scheduling and showing repeats. Too bad, because I really liked it alot.

one of my major questions is whether not the futures depicted in the flashfowards are definite or if they are optional
