mark your calendars: lost has a premiere date


The powers that be have announced that the sixth and final season of Lost will kick off with a two-hour premiere on February 2, 2010, in its new regular time slot, Tuesdays at 9:00pm. Let the countdown begin: This just in: And the 'Lost' premiere date is...

ABC's press release also revealed who among the show's cast will receive full-time, series-regular billing in season six. Among them: Naveen Andrews, Daniel Dae Kim, Yunjin Kim, Ken Leung and Zuleikha Robinson (looks like Ilana will be back). That's five -- count 'em! -- five official series regulars of Asian descent on a prime-time network TV show.

Will there be enough to wrap up all the loose ends? Can't wait to find out.
