SCI FI Wire talked to “Lost” executive producer and co-creator Damon Lindelof, who revealed some new things about the upcoming fourth season. Here are several clips (Spoilers ahead!):
“Michael [Harold Perrineau] is coming back. Definitely. As for Walt [Michael’s young son, played by Malcolm David Kelley], we’ve always known Malcolm was going to grow faster than we could shoot the show. And we planned for it. Trust us. Please trust us.”
The show’s producers have already figured out what they will do with the mysterious character of Jacob, who was introduced at the end of season three. Picking his words carefully, executive producer Carlton Cuse said, “Yes, we do know how Jacob will be depicted. Notice the careful wording of my answer. And no, Jacob did not appear before he was met by Locke.” Cuse also declined to say whether an actor had been chosen to portray the character.
