Elizabeth Mitchell Will Not Be Series Regular In Season 6

Update: 16:00 Thanks to RJ for this little update from E!Online.

5:38 a.m.: Someone asks McPherson more about Elizabeth Mitchell, and he says, “She’s a fantastic actress and we’re thrilled to be able to have her do both [Lost and V]…You’ll see her on Lost, but V is her next piece.”

Update: 14:00 At today’s ABC Upfront Presentation they ABC Panel had this to say. “Very grateful to producers of Lost to let Elizabeth Mitchell film V pilot but “I think you will see her on Lost.”

Here are the latest details about Elizabeth Mitchell and her character Juliet and if we will see her again. To be honest I think the writers left it open to see how well her new show V does, but here is Ausiello’s take:

Thanks to Everyone that sent this in.

And now for some news that should surprise no one: ABC is expected to announce tomorrow that it has picked up a reboot of the camptastic ’80s thriller V and that Lost heroine Elizabeth Mitchell is a full-time castmember.

Translation: She will not be returning to Lost as a series regular.

However, before you go declaring Juliet DOA from last week’s detonated hydrogen bomb, I should point out that this piece of scoop comes with a big but attached: Mitchell’s Lost days are not done. Multiple sources confirm that the actress is expected to appear in an unspecified number of episodes next season, so it’s entirely possible Juliet survived Jughead and her absence will be explained in another way.

Latest From Ausiello About Season 6

*UPDATED* Added a little tidbit about Elizabeth Mitchell

Not much but here you go. Enjoy!

Question: This is probably a long shot, but got any Lost scoop? –Jeff

Ausiello: Yeah, having Lost scoop in late May is about as unlikely as me combing through my old transcripts and finding an unused Damon Lindelof quote pertaining to the show’s series finale. OMG, looky here: “We’ve been planning out the selesai season for four years now. And of all the talks we have had about the show, [reuniting all the castaways] is the subject that has come up the most. The ending was almost where we began, and we had to figure out how to get there. It’s like a wedding where the reception is the part that requires the most planning and is the most fun to plan. We’ve exchanged our vows and I am ready to go party.”

Question: Realistically, how many episodes of Lost do you think Elizabeth Mitchell will be in next year? –Derek

Ausiello: My gut is telling me we’ll see her in two episodes max. But my gut has been wrong before. Oh, who am I kidding, no it hasn’t.
