Will this be the last season of Lost?

Lost has some major work to do the rest of this season if it wants to remain on the air. For starters, they need to start solving a few of the major mysteries of the show. This season, we've been teased with answers to minor questions, but had more unanswered questions sprung on us. There are too many unanswered questions, and by the time the show gets to them, most of us forgot they exist. Fingers crossed that JJ Abrams doesn't this show like he ruined the last few seasons of Alias.

Lost has been very succesfull (at least in my country), so I don't think they'll stop a tv show that still makes money! I really hope it's not the last season...

I have to agree with you on this one, it seems as if the show will go down hill if they dont start answering many questions very soon

i think they have a 3 season deal so there will be at least one more. Unless your on season 3 already over there.

No way they cant end lost, they have so many good rating's for this show and they will loose so many MID weekers if they do that.

I love the show and think they are doing great. My husband is upset because he wants to know what is going on the that cloud of black creepy smoke (we call it a smoke bat). Plus why are they all intertwined before comming to the island? I think the questions unanswered keeps people around. I know I am not going anywhere.

The show isn't as good as it was the first 2 seasons but I still really enjoy it. I do think the writers got in over there head taking the show in too many different directions and are now trying to force everything to fit together and make sense. But still I will stick with it as long as it's on the air. They have answered a few questions only to give us just as many new ones but that's what I like about the show. It's mysterious. If you want everyhing laid out before you in a nice neat package than Lost is not the show for you.

I agree. You are always left wondering. Or sitting there saying why did you do that. I love the show, and there should be cliff hangers.Maybe there is a method to his madness.Hopefully the end of the season will bring those answers to us.

As far as I understand it Lost is picked up on a season by season basis, so it's not like ABC picked it up for five seasons and everyone can breathe easy. In general, getting to 100 episodes is the number to shoot for (which is about five seasons) because that used to be the number at which the show would be sold into syndication (or reruns in viewer language). In the current TV world, the 100 number isn't as set in stone as it used to be. Some shows syndicate after two or three seasons. But how long will Los go? As long as there are interesting stories to tell and theres and audience. if the audience were to fall tomorrow to the lowest ratings ABC has ever had, we probably wouldn't get picked up. Personally I don't think Lost has anything to worry about as far as stories go. I think the writers have been very smart about setting up characters and mysteries, giving answers and posing new questions, that allow interesting stories to develop and continue for many more seasons. As way of an example, think of Buffy and Twin Peaks. Buffy had enough interesting stories to last for seven seasons, but Twin Peaks stumbled in the middle of the second season and never recovered. So it's difficult to answer that question because no one really knows.
