The television series by ABC ran for six seasons, starting on September 22, 2004.

There was an idea being floated where Miles and Sawyer would have a spinoff in the style True Detective. But that would be so own/unique that it wouldn’t give the feeling of continuing LOST. “So yes, maybe. I would love to go back to Hawaii. when i think about LOST, I don’t think about the show as much as I think about Hawaii. But I think it depends on where they wanted to take her and who was coming back.”
Leung is not the only person who still associates LOST to Hawaii. Years after the hit series ended, for example, fans still flock to the island to see the show’s filming locations.
Nearly two decades after the series ended, however, fans of LOST still gather to see where the series was filmed. Many of these locations are finally accessible to the public. As well as the filming tours of Lord of the Rings that are popular in New Zealand, fans coming to the US will plan their entire trip to see the filming locations of LOST in Hawaii.
