Lost comes to an end in May 2010.
While fans may be in denial, ABC is already planning for this possibly Apocalyptical event. The network hopes Flash Forward will swoop in and satisfy the mysterious cravings of Lost viewers.
And it all started last night. Five times during Lost, a small image appeared inside a black screen, followed by the words "What did you see?"
The clips - seconds in length and likely missed in this DVR age - were the first peeks at Flash Forward, a series all but guaranteed to be part of the ABC's fall schedule.

The promos (above) didn't show viewers much, but that was the idea. There images were of someone surfing, a sonogram, a group of kids leaving school, a bride and groom kissing and pallbearers carrying a coffin.
According to reports, the question What did you see? will be a central theme of the drama. Will it become 2009-2010's version of Save the Cheerleader, save the world? ABC sure hopes so.
The show is based on a novel by Robert J. Sawyer. It follows the fallout from a cataclysm in which the world's entire population blacks out for just over two minutes.
Flash Forward stars Joseph Fiennes, Sonya Walger, Courtney B. Vance, Christine Woods and John Cho.
