My dear Losties, there’s good news and there’s bad news regarding our beloved ‘Lost.’

Let’s get the bummer part out of the way: ‘Lost’ will be taking a break during the week of April 27th. That’s right–no new episode that week! They will instead air a repeat of the Black Rockin’ Richard Alpert flashback, so at least the night won’t be completely ‘Lost’-less. *I’ve posted the rest of ‘Lost’s airing schedule below.

Now the good news: ABC announced there will be a series finale post-show special on Jimmy Kimmel, airing immediately after the monster, mind-bending and inevitably heart-breaking two-hour series ender of ‘Lost’ on Sunday, May 23.

Highlights of the hour include “an analysis of the two-hour conclusion, an appearance by executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, and live interviews with several of the show’s cast,” according to EW.

Fans of Kimmel know he is a huge ‘Lost’ geek like the rest of us cool kids, so I’m expecting ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live: Aloha to Lost’ to be highly entertaining and informative, so set your DVRs now.
