According to Sci Fi Wire, Lost producers Carlton Cuse and Bryan Burk recently talked a bit about the next season of Lost.
“The Others are an important part of season three, and there’s a lot of mysteries and a lot of questions about the Others that the audience is going to be curious about going into season three.”
Said executive producer Carlton Cuse, who continued:
“There will definitely be some new characters on the show next year. … Obviously, Michael Emerson, who plays Henry Gale, he’s someone who’s going to be very prominent in the show next year.”
According to executive producer Bryan Burk, love will play a larger role in the next season of Lost:
“I’m excited about love in season three. Don’t forget now the people have been on the island for 60-plus days. They’re now obviously more familiar with each other. … The concept of love [is there], and … it weaves its way through all of our characters. It’s going to be much more prevalent in season three.”
