ABC Entertainment President Stephen McPherson didn't offer any details Wednesday of what's in store for Michael. He also didn't say whether Walt, the son played by, will be seen again.
The pair fled the mysterious island where the crash victims were struggling to survive against the dangerous "Others," with desperate Michael turning over his friends in exchange for escape.
The network had planned to make the "Lost" announcement at Comic-Con International, the comic book and pop-culture show starting Thursday in. But McPherson, speaking to a meeting of the , was pressed for the information.
Earlier this year, ABC said will run for three more seasons, concluding in 2009-10. The series will return for its fourth season in January.
Fuckity fuck! Well, I hope to god they don't bring creepy Walt back so he can stand in the corner of tents dripping wet looking all scary and telling them to "shh" and then disappearing into the forest. Man oh man, I really am NOT happy about this... unless Michael has been trapped with Walt on the boat that the "Others" sent him away on after betraying his friends and he was lost at sea and Walt died and Michael had to eat him, therefore staying alive longer only to drift back to the island that he had escaped from. And then when they see him they shoot him and he dies. That is the only scenario to which I will be mildly okay with the fact the the most annoying character -ever- on television is getting a second chance on a fantastic show. Grr.
