Damon Lindelof: One of the things that's really cool to us about Season Three is that we're not going to have reruns this year, which is sort of a big frustration, both for us creatively and the fans in terms of getting traction. We feel like we've all arrived at a compromise that's going to be awesome. As a result, the downside is that there is going to be thirteen weeks with no Lost. But we're designing almost a mini-season that's going to start the first week of October and run all the way through the middle of November with six consecutive episodes that will almost be sort of a self contained storyline, with it's own little mini-cliffhanger. That way, when we come back in February and run the remaining sixteen episodes, it should be fairly cool. We all sat down and worked out the entire season right when we finished Season Two. We didn't even break. All the writers went down to Hawaii, and we basically figured out what the tent poles of [Season Three] were going to be. At the end of episode six, a tremendous amount of stuff is going to be happening. I don't know how I could possibly be any vaguer in terms of specifics.
"Lost" - awarded the 2005 Emmy and 2006 Golden Globe for best drama series - has begun production in Hawaii on third season episodes of action-packed mystery and adventure -- that will continue to bring out the very best and the very worst in the people who are lost. The series will have its season premiere WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 4 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
After Oceanic Air flight 815 tore apart in mid-air and crashed on a Pacific island, its survivors were forced to find inner strength they never knew they had in order to survive. But they discovered that the island holds many secrets, including a mysterious smoke monster, polar bears, a strange French woman and another group of island residents known as "The Others." The survivors have also found signs of those who came to the island before them, including a 19th century sailing ship called The Black Rock, the remains of an ancient statue and bunkers belonging to the Dharma Initiative, a group of scientific researchers.
Jack, Kate and Sawyer open the season in captivity as prisoners of "The Others." Just who these "Others" are and what they want are primary questions Season Three will explore. Michael Emerson joins the regular cast in his ongoing role as Henry Gale, leader of "The Others." Romance looms on the horizon as Jack's interests veer towards a mysterious new woman, whose motives may be questionable. Sun and Jin will continue to celebrate their pregnancy - but is the child really Jin's? Locke and Sayid will band together with some of the other survivors and journey across the island in an attempt to free Jack, Kate and Sawyer. Charlie will attempt to return into the good graces of Claire and her baby, Aaron, but can he be trusted to stay clean and sober? The fates of Locke, Desmond and Mr. Eko in the aftermath of the implosion of the hatch are answered. Will Penny Widmore find the island and her long, lost love, Desmond, and can the survivors find a way to interact with the outside world?
I'm telling you this now because it looks like Ms. Sanchez closed the deal late Friday, although I have yet to receive an official confirmation from ABC. I'll have more on this developing story in this Wednesday's AA.

Found this in TV Guide which is a free suppliment to the UK paper the Sun.It appears that next season Jin learns to speak English.
From dwb: What do you mean you know what happens at the beginning of next season? Dish!
I do know how the season premiere starts off and can tell you that I don't want to overhype it in any way, but it gives me chills just hearing about it! Obviously, I can't ruin it for you or I'll be locked up as soon as I land in Honolulu and ridiculed for even thinking I could get close to the set, but here's what I can tease for you: (1) There is angle that is reminiscent of something seen on Desperate Housewives (okay, that makes it sound really scary, but I promise, it's not), and (2) we see Jack, Kate and Sawyer right away, but not in the same place.
"We were interested in exploring what price you would pay to get your son back. The price that Michael paid was so extreme, it didn't seem possible that he could remain a part of this society after what he had done," Cuse said, noting that banishment goes back to the Greeks.
"He's been banished from the island, and that to us represented sort of the necessary consequence of his action. It doesn't mean his story is over," he said.
If you're like us, you can't wait until "Lost" returns -- October 4, if you haven't already marked your calendar. And if you are as addicted to the show as we are, you'll take whatever info you can get -- even if it's only 10 seconds long.
Cameras spotted Matthew Fox, who plays Dr. Jack Shephard on the show, in Hawaii where he's currently filming the third season of the hit show. You'll notice Fox is dressed in hospital scrubs -- so he's probably filming a flashback scene. He was headed back to his trailer after shooting a scene in a medical center on the island.
The show has wrapped up most of Fox's character's back story -- we saw what drove his dad to drink and why his wife left him -- so maybe these flashback scenes will raise some new questions. Personally, we're curious who Jack's wife left him for -- Desmond, perhaps?
