It wouldn’t be a season ending episode of “Lost” if it didn’t run a bit long.
ABC has shown patience with the show in the past, extending each season finale of the hit show in seasons’ past. And now it appears that two hours won’t be enough to wrap up events on the mysterious island.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the finale of the show will run two and a half hours, from 9 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. EST on May 23.
For those of you keeping track at home, that’s a Sunday evening.
The supersizing of the finale is the latest adjustment to what might as well be called “The ‘Lost’ Weekend.” ABC is airing an “enhanced” (pop-ups) version of the show’s original two-hour pilot on May 22. On Sunday there’s a two-hour retrospective titled “Lost: The Final Journey,” followed by the finale, then the local news and Kimmel post-show.
