Netflix Will Restore ‘LOST’ Finale After Airing Cut Version
Olympus Athens   |  @   |  


Oh LOST… you are still mixing it up, years after you ended with one of the most talked about series finales in television history. Fans watching the show on Netflix noticed that little bits were missing from that controversial last episode, and took to the internet to complain.

More below.

SPOILERS who you haven’t watched the end of LOST….

That last episode, where the characters who died were reunited in a church (limbo) before moving on to the afterlife, caused such an outcry that people still argue about it to this day (there is a LOST rift in my house).

A crazy long Reddit thread that looks to be 117 days old has comments along with some Netflix replies about looking into it. According to these fans, the original uncut 104-minute finale was there a while back, but it had changed to 84-minutes. It wasn’t until showrunner and creator Damon Lindelof spoke to EW that Netflix started doing something about it.

Damon Lindelof said this to EW:

“I am totally befuddled by all this. Love it or hate it, the finale that aired is the definitive finale and to alter it in any way defies explanation. Something tells me that this isn’t Netflix’s fault “¦ that it’s an honest mistake and something got miscommunicated “” I seem to remember ABC had to make an edit for rerun airings that tightened the show into “˜format’ (42 minutes to accommodate commercials), and somehow that [version] mistakenly got sent to Netflix. This sometimes happened with our finales “” we’d ask for extra time and ABC would agree to air, but then we had to do another tighter version for subsequent airings and/or international [markets]. We usually left these (painful) cuts to the discretion of our editors”¦ but as the show lives on in DVD form and on Netflix, there is ZERO reason to have the shorter version out there. I have no intention of “˜changing’ nor Special Editioning the finale “¦ we continue to stand by it, but this is a fix that needs to happen, so at least people can love or hate it in its entirety. Also, Deckard is a replicant.”

Netflix’s response?

We will let you know when the finale is back to its full glory.
