Hello friends!! It's your friendly neighborhood Soundwave here and what a week it's been! 

    This week will see the release of Mo Ryan's new book, "Burn it Down: Power, Complicity, and a Call for Change in Hollywood". I highly encourage all Lost fans and Lost: Circle viewers to support this author and give this book a read, particularly the chapter that concerns the production of LOST which you can read in this post Vanity Fair - "Lost Illusions: The Untold Story of the Hit Show’s Poisonous Culture". The things that were experienced by the writing staff and cast are truly disturbing and so utterly heart breaking to hear about. My heart goes out to everyone who has suffered pain and torment during the production of Lost! My hope is that as a fan community we can all rally behind the people who are finally able to tell their stories and the changing tides as progress is made and people are held accountable for their actions.

    I believe that LOST: CIRCLE is in some ways, more important than ever! The color correction that has been implemented in scenes that take place in Nigeria, Iraq, Tunisia, and Australia have all been adjusted to reflect a realistic color palette. The additional foreign language translations and subtitles for characters like Jin and Sun. Full cast and crew credits for each episode, all of these additions make Lost: Circle a more inclusive experience and that has always been one of the most important goals for this project. 

    The Heart of the Island is love! The places, forums, websites, chat rooms, servers, and friends that LOST has given all of us is something that has brought my life a completely overwhelming amount of joy and belonging. I know so many people whose lives wouldn't be the same without lost, and now we've been given an opportunity to lift up the voices of the people who Lost left behind in pain and torment. I know that this community is up to the task!

    LOST: CIRCLE will return for season 4 on my birthday (and I will be 34 holy shit)! June 26th 2023. The announcement trailer is posted above! Season 4 will consist of 12 absolutely rip roaring episodes that will take us all the way from "Tricia Tanaka is Dead" all the way to "Because you Left". I'm really looking forward to the logistical challenges to come and I'm actively bracing for the complete chaos of season 5. 

    I want to thank you all for your time and support on this project! I wouldn't be able to do all of this without you, and everyone who has reached out with feedback has been so kind and helpful!!

    Also! I cannot let this post end without pointing you all towards the brilliant Kuhpunkt who has released a 6-part extremely comprehensive documentary on inception of the LOST Pilot! I was lucky enough to have a small small hand in the production and it truly is a remarkable work and one that answers, confirms, and dispels many long held lost myths!
