More than 200 fans of the hit television series LOST from around the world are currently registered to attend LOST 2020, a fan festival on Oahu, May 21-24. Fans “have to go back” to the island for exclusive screenings of the pilot and final episodes at locations where they filmed, a cast Q&A and autograph/selfie session, an “Orientation” welcome reception and “The End” wrap party, a beer pour with cast member Andrew “Patchy” Divoff, a Legacy of LOST Panel with fan experts including Josh Wigler of The Hollywood Reporter, location tours, costume contest and much more.
The series finale is certain to evoke emotion, as it’s being screened in the church where the final 10 minutes of the episode filmed. Due to space limitations, only the first 250 ticket holders will be able to view the screening at the church. A second screening has been added at the HawaiiConvention Center to accommodate additional attendees. Only a few tickets remain for those wanting to see the finale in the church.
The pilot episode will be screened outdoors at night at Kualoa Ranch. Several scenes of the pilot were shot at the Ranch, including the last moments when Charlie said, “Guys – where are we?” This screening will cap off a day of adventure at the Ranch, including a custom LOST tour of filming locations, a group photo at Hurley’s Golf Course, and a delicious “Orientation” welcome reception with Hawaiian food.
LOST filmed on Oahu from 2004-2010. It still makes headlines from Entertainment Tonight to TV Line. The question most frequently asked is whether ABC will revisit the show at some point. ABC Entertainment president Karey Burkeweighed in during a Television Critics Association press tour last year. “Yes, I would like that very much. That is a reboot I would be interested in seeing,” Burke said. Will it happen? Are the fans interested? It’s something that will definitely be discussed during the Legacy of LOST panel at LOST 2020.
