Toronto, ON (January 22, 2008) – Charlie is dead, the survivors are about to be rescued, and Michael returns. Who will make it off the island, and who will perish? The action-packed mystery adventure series Lost is the latest Top 10 program to return to the CTV schedule when the all-new fourth season premieres Thursday, Jan. 31 at 9 p.m. ET (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times).

Additionally, CTV invites Lost viewers to catch up on the past three seasons of the critically-acclaimed drama in the recap special Lost: Past, Present & Future on Thursday, Jan. 31 at 8 p.m. ET, leading into the season premiere. The new drama series Eli Stone premieres at 10 p.m. ET on CTV, immediately following Lost.

Finally, fans can relive all three seasons of Lost in the extended trailer “Lost In 8:15.” The fast-paced trailer, which recounts the saga of the passengers from Oceanic Air’s Flight 815 in eight minutes and 15 seconds, is available at lost.ctv.ca

“A Top 10 favourite, Lost is the fourth scripted series to premiere on CTV since the beginning of the month,” said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. “After last year’s explosive season finale, this is surely the most-anticipated new season yet.”

With only 48 original episodes left until the series finale airs in 2010, this season truly is the beginning of the end, with the promise of the castaways’ rescue at hand. Jack has radioed a freighter stationed somewhere off the coast of the island. But when it’s discovered that Charlie’s dying warning was that these people may not be who they say they are, the castaways are split as to what to do.

The band of friends, family, enemies and strangers must continue to work together against the cruel weather and harsh terrain if they want to stay alive. But as they have discovered during their 90-plus days on the island, danger and mystery lurk around every corner, and those they have come to trust may turn against them. Even heroes have secrets.

The special Lost: Past, Present & Future (Thursday, Jan. 31 at 8 p.m. ET) explores the series in a way that will bring new viewers up to date – and that diehard fans will find illuminating in anticipation of the fourth season premiere episode. The special takes an in-depth look at the mysteries of both the island and its inhabitants and recaps the secrets that have been revealed, as well as those that remain a mystery.

In the Season 4 premiere episode “The Beginning of the End” (Thursday, Jan. 31 at 9 p.m. ET), with their rescue close at hand, the remaining survivors of Flight 815 don’t know whether or not to believe Charlie’s final message that the people promising to liberate them are not who they seem to be.

Season 4 stars Naveen Andrews as Sayid, Henry Ian Cusick as Desmond, Emilie de Ravin as Claire, Michael Emerson as Ben, Matthew Fox as Jack, Jorge Garcia as Hurley, Josh Holloway as Sawyer, Daniel Dae Kim as Jin, Yunjin Kim as Sun, Evangeline Lilly as Kate, Elizabeth Mitchell as Juliet, Terry O’Quinn as Locke and Harold Perrineau as Michael.

Lost was created by Jeffrey Lieber and J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof. Abrams, Lindelof, Bryan Burk, Jack Bender and Carlton Cuse serve as Executive Producers.
