The Fate & Future of Season 4

Judging from the various quotes today from Executive Producer/Writer Damon Lindelof, it looks like we will be treated to at least 5-6 new episodes of Lost this season, should the writers strike end this week.

(E! online):
"Indeed, it would appear that we are in the endgame of the strike. Personally, I couldn't be more psyched to be part of this union. Like any negotiation, some parts suck and some parts surpassed my wildest expectations for what we could accomplish, but most of all I'm left with a feeling of pride.

As for Lost (pending the actual lifting of the strike, which we vote for on Tuesday), a game plan should begin to manifest by the end of the week. All I can say is that Carlton and I and the rest of the writers have every intention of making sure you guys get more episodes this season beyond the eight already completed. How many and how they will be aired is a conversation we'll be having with our bosses, but as soon as we've got a plan, we'll tell the fans first."

(AP):
"We very much want to come back and do as many episodes as possible. How many episodes can best serve our story? And what are the production realities? I don't see why we couldn't deliver all eight remaining episodes."
(LA Times):
"I think the big task ahead of us is to basically come up with the best plan both creatively and logistically for Lost moving forward. If they go along with what we kind of want to do, my guess is it will be fairly aggressive. So every day counts.
We have to look at all the notes that were taken right before we left in terms of what we're going to do creatively for the remainder of the season and refresh our memory a little."
After only two new episodes, I am hooked back in entirely, if not more. So this is news to my eyes and ears.
