JACK, KATE AND SAWYER DISCOVER WHAT THEY ARE UP AGAINST AS PRISONERS OF “THE OTHERS,” ON THE SEASON PREMIERE OF ABC’S “LOST”
“Lost” – awarded the 2005 Emmy and 2006 Golden Globe for best drama series – is back for a third season 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 season premiere airs WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 4 (9:00-10:01 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.
