A TWO-HOUR RETROSPECTIVE LOOK AT THE PAST SIX SEASONS OF
ONE OF THE MOST CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED AND TALKED-ABOUT SHOWS
OF THE PAST DECADE KICKS OFF THE "LOST" SERIES FINALE EVENT
WITH "THE FINAL JOURNEY," SUNDAY, MAY 23 ON ABC
"Lost" Series Finale Airs Immediately After the Special
ABC invites new and avid "Lost" viewers to take a final glance at one of television's most talked about and critically acclaimed shows. The "Lost" Series Finale Event begins with this two-hour special, which takes a retrospective look back over the past six seasons of this groundbreaking series. "Lost The Final Journey" airs SUNDAY, MAY 23 (7:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
On September 22, 2004, Oceanic Air flight 815 tore apart in mid-air and crashed on a Pacific island, leaving 48 passengers alive and stranded on a remote island in the South Pacific. The survivors include a diverse group of people from different walks of life -- a doctor, an escaped fugitive, a con man, an Iraqi interrogator, a married Korean couple and a man formerly confined to a wheelchair who is now inexplicably healed. As the castaways attempt to get home, flashbacks (and forwards) illuminate their troubled lives before and after the crash, as the island that they find themselves stranded on begins to slowly reveal its mysterious nature. With the detonation of the hydrogen bomb, flash-sideways show two timelines - one on the island, and the other depicting their lives as if the plane never crashed. Faith, reason, destiny and free will all clash as the island offers opportunities for both corruption and redemption... but as to its true purpose? That's the greatest mystery of all.
"Lost: The Final Journey" celebrates the show by taking a look back on how it all started in 2004, what it took to produce the seminal show in Hawaii, and how it became a phenomenon in the U.S. and around the world. Past and present cast members will share their experiences working on the show and their thoughts on its coming to an end. Also examined will be the dynamic characters, themes and innovative storytelling, plus an extensive look at what has transpired during the current season as a primer leading into the finale, which airs immediately after this special from 9:00-11:00 p.m., ET.
