JorgegarciaAnother mini Lost reunion is about to happen on the set of Hawaii Five-0.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Jorge Garcia will make a guest appearance in the crime series as a conspiracy theorist, joining fellow Lost alum Daniel Dae Kim.

Garcia’s appearance is the latest in a long line of mini Lost reunions on the set of Hawaii Five-0, with Terry O’Quinn, Tania Raymonde and Reiko Aylesworth all appearing in the past.

A new pilot from Lost creator J.J. Abrams has been greenlit by CBS.

The project, Person of Interest,  is the brainchild of both Abrams and screenwriter Jonah Nolan, brother of Dark Knight and Inception director Christopher Nolan.

Details about the pilot are fairly limited but Entertainment Weekly understands that it centres on a CIA officer who is presumed dead working on a secret project for a reclusive billionaire.

Former Lost actor Jorge Garcia has signed on for new J.J. Abrams series Alcatraz.

Garcia, who played Hurley on Lost, will reunite with Abrams on his new project which will centre on the infamous San Francisco island prison.

The actor will take on the role of Dr Diego Soto, the world’s foremost expert on the prison, which has housed the likes of Al Capone in the past.

The series follows a group of prisoners and guards who go missing from the prison when it was still in operation and reappear in the modern day.

Filming is expected to begin in January.

The former Lost producer will re-team with another Lost alum in executive producer Elizabeth Sarnoff to develop the project.

Sarnoff will write the pilot episode for the unnamed series whose plot is under a cloud of secrecy.

The project is understood to be based on an original idea sold to Abrams’ Bad Robot production company.

Head to head from 9-11 p.m., LOST attracted 63% more viewers than the season finale of CELEBRITY APPRENTICE (Global/NBC, 1.23 million).

Before the finale, the two-hour LOST recap special THE FINAL JOURNEY attracted 1.5 million viewers, winning the 7 p.m. timeslot and charting as the #2 most watched program of the night.

This season, LOST videos were streamed 6.4 million times on the CTV Video Player at CTV.ca, including more than half a million video streams since Sunday night’s finale.

Viewers get a final glance at one of television’s most talked about and critically acclaimed shows. The LOST series finale event begins with a two-hour special that takes a look back over the past six seasons of this groundbreaking series.

9:00pm – Tuesday, May 18 on CTV

Synopsis currently not available.

The producers of Lost have quashed any rumours there may be a movie based on the series.

Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have ruled out the possibility of a movie, saying they want the series to stand on its own.

“The chances [of a movie] are very little,” Cuse said. “We don’t have any intentions of doing that. This is the story we wanted to tell, and it ends next Sunday night, and we were incredibly grateful that we got a chance to do it.”

The pair also said they do not plan on making another series similar to Lost.

“The thing that made Lost Lost was the idea of doing something different and unique and the idea was special and unexpected,” he said. “We could never even try to replicate this thing. We would both die happy if Lost is the greatest television achievement of either of our careers. I hope we work together again, but who knows what it’ll be.”

The Lost finale screens on CTV at 9pm on May 23.
