ABC and the “Lost” team are sticking to their promise not to air any footage from the final season before it premieres Feb. 2. But if you’re lucky, you might see a bit of the premiere ahead of time.
The show is running a sweepstakes in advance of the season premiere in which people can win a valuable prize: A peek at the debut a few days before it airs. OK, so maybe there’s not a ton of monetary value in that, but to a “Lost” obsessive, it’s gold.
It works like this: Go to the show’s sweepstakes site and answer six questions about the series (you’ll have to register with ABC.com first, if you’re not already). The site is accepting one entry per e-mail address through Jan. 17. ABC will choose 815 winners from the submissions and mail them a “message in a bottle” containing a USB drive that “resembles … Desmond Hume’s fail-safe key.” The drive contains a video that includes scenes from last season’s finale, “The Incident,” plus a sneak peek at the new season.
Winners will receive their packages on Friday, Jan. 29, four days before the premiere.
The sweepstakes site, once again, is lostthefinalseasonsweepstakes.com.
