ABC Announces Premiere Date for Fifth Season of LOST


The long-awaited fifth season of Lost will premiere on ABC Wednesday, Jan. 21, with a special two-hour episode preceded by a clip show.

The series will shift from last season’s Thursday time slot to its original Wednesdays at 9 p.m. slot this season. ABC has approved 17 episodes for season five, one hour more than the usual 16. The network added an extra hour to compensate for last year, which was cut short by the writers strike.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, 24‘s Reiko Aylesworth is in negotiations for a major recurring role on the series.

Private Practice, which was recently picked up for a full season, currently occupies Lost‘s Wednesday slot. The network is expected to announce that series’ new timeslot this week.

  1. Oh, goody, just what they need–another character. 🙂 I do hope they’ll do a recap show, though, as I want to watch but missed some of the end of last season. Or…Susannah could do a recap post!

    I wonder what the Wednesday shuffle will mean for Pushing Daisies–or will they be through their 14-ep order by that time?
