If you set aside a mere two hours to be confused when Lost ends its run on Sunday, May 23, we just learned that won't be enough, because ABC has announced that the final episode will run from 9 to 11:30 p.m.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series creators have shot so much crucial material for the show's hugely anticipated finale that the network agreed to extend the last episode by an extra half hour.

And if 2 1/2 hours simply isn't enough to satisfy your Lost hunger—wait, there's more.

ABC will also be airing an "enhanced" pop-up version of the show's two-hour pilot on May 22, a two-hour retrospective titled "Lost: The Final Journey" immediately before the finale and a "Jimmy Kimmel Live: Aloha to Lost" post-finale special airing after the finale at 12:05 a.m.

So what do you think? Are you a Candidate for every minute of Lost's ending?
