The countdown to the fifth season of "Lost" is officially on with the release of its promo trailer by ABC. The footage explains among others, what happen to the people that have been rescued off the island and how they are determined to come back to the island to save the remaining people, but find it difficult since the island has gone out of sight.
The fifth season which will come in early 2009, begins 108 days after the fateful plane crash. Many have died and new characters have been introduced, and since the the first four seasons of the series were interjected with flashbacks, some actors are brought back to the series although they have either died or gone missing. The fifth season, according to executive producer Damon Lindelof, will be more like on and off the island stories in different points in time.
Rumored recurring cast returning for the new season include Ana Lucia (Michelle Rodriguez), Danielle Rousseau (Mira Furlan) and Jin (Daniel Dae Kim) among others. The latest allegedly survived the explosion on the oil tanker.
