It’s been called one of the most compelling television series of our time. Now, CTV says goodbye to the epic series LOST with special programming leading up to what will become one of the most talked about series finales ever.

Following the broadcast, CTV.ca hosts an interactive live chat with a panel of LOST experts, including author Nikki Stafford, television columnist Andrew Ryan and ETALK reporter Lainey Lui, to dissect every twist and turn in the final episode.
Then, for anyone who misses the seminal television event, the series finale will be available on demand on the CTV Video Player at CTV.ca, in addition to repeat broadcasts on Thursday, May 27 at 8:30 p.m. ET on SPACE and Saturday, May 29 at 8 p.m. ET on /A\ (visit CTV.ca or spacecast.com to confirm local broadcast times).
