ABC says “Lost” will return in January!
The show will open its fifth season with a two-hour premiere starting at 9 p.m. ET Wednesday, Jan. 21. It marks a return to Wednesdays for the show, which aired after “Grey’s Anatomy” on Thursday nights at the end of last season.
“Lost” ended its fourth season by showing how the Oceanic Six got off the island and formed their cover story, with flash-forwards showing all six people decidedly unhappy with their post-rescue lives and realizing they have to go back. Which could be a problem, as the finale also showed Ben (played by Michael Emerson moving the island to points unknown. And then there’s the matter of Locke (Terry O’Quinn) being revealed as the man in the coffin.
