One of the most famous series of all time, Lost had without a doubt a controversial finale. Now, the creators of this show decided to talk about the way it ended.
The former team who worked at Lost had a reunion at the PaleyFest 2014, on Sunday night, after years of absolutely no comments on this extremely famous project. The series had its finale in 2010. After the finale of Lost, a series of questions remained with no answer.
Some of these questions were now answered by no one else than producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse. In case you haven’t watched already this series and you plan on doing so in the near future, it would be better to not read the interview of the two producers.
“They were not dead the whole time,” Cuse said during this interview according to Entertainment Weekly. This way, the producer put an end to one of the most controversial aspects regarding Lost. “We just didn’t fell like there was a way to answer to all the open questions without being didactic and boring.”
“Tell us what happened to the characters. We care much more about what happened to them,” he added. The two explained that they didn’t really liked the two characters Nikki and Paulo, either. In fact, they actually hated them both.
Lost made its debut in 2004. The show managed to quickly conquer the audience, being quite a unique and impressive story. It is the story of a group of plane crash survivors on an island with supernatural powers. The popularity of the series was so great that it actually ran for no less than 6 season.
The finale of the show was highly unexpected and this actually made it even more interesting. “What we cared about most was the emotional journey of each character,” Cuse said. “In the final episode of Lost we could answer a question that wasn’t asked. What is the meaning of life? And what happens when you die?”
“Lost was about people who were lost and searching for meaning and purpose in their lives,” Cuse concluded.
