Showtime series Shameless, Californication and House of Lies will return to the airwaves on Sunday, Jan. 13, the cable network announced Monday.
Many shows have fallen victim to the three most cursed words in recent TV history: "the next Lost." Ever since the island drama debuted in 2005, networks have been scrambling to re-create the series' irresistible combination of poignant drama and the bizarre supernatural. Unfortunately, most shows that try to fill those shoes — FlashForward, The Event and Alcatraz, to name three — have floundered within just a season. Does NBC's latest foray into sci-fi mystery genre, Revolution, have what it takes to break the curse?
Don't assume Alan Dale (King George) and newly promoted series regular Emilie de Ravin (Belle) are the only former Lost actors you'll see as Disney characters on ABC's Once Upon a Time next season. The drama's creators (and former Lost producers) Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis tell me they're hoping to find a part for...

Jorge Garcia is finally getting off the island.
The Lost and Alcatraz alum has landed a guest-starring role on Californication, where he'll be reunited...

Alcatraz's two-hour season finale left viewers thunderstruck after fan-favorite heroine Rebecca (Sarah Jones) met her demise at the hands of her grandfather (David Hoflin). The powers that be behind the '63s' disappearance were also revealed to be the Warden (Jonny Coyne) and a mysterious unidentified man who, TVGuide.com has learned, is actually named Mr. K (Matt Craven).

On top of all that, it turns out there are two factions of '63s working together. Their motives? Still mostly unknown. So what happens if Fox doesn't renew the series and we don't get the answers to the new mysteries raised? We turned to executive producer Daniel Pyne to get the scoop:
How are you guys feeling about the chances of a second season?

Alcatraz, Jorge Garcia and Sarah Jones
Hopefully Fox picks up Alcatraz for a second season because the two-hour season finale left viewers with plenty of new questions — and one possible major death.
In the season ender, Rebecca (Sarah Jones) finally came face-to-face with her grandfather, Tommy (David Hoflin), who is apparently one of the lieutenants on the side of the '63s faction who work for the Warden (Jonny Coyne). The other side is lead by Harlan (Steven Grayhm), and possibly Matt Craven's mysterious man (whom we'll call MM throughout the story since he has no name) behind the door. What are their ultimate goals? Still not completely clear, but we do have a new theory. Why were they divided? Somebody broke a promise. Let's first take a look at the season-long mysteries that were answered, then dive into the new questions that the finale raised:
Sarah Jones and David Hoflin
Spectacular. Kinetic. Breathtaking. These are just a few of the words that the cast and creative minds of Alcatraz used to describe the two-hour season finale of the Fox mystery series, airing Monday at 8/7c. The season-ender finds Rebecca (Sarah Jones) finally confronting Tommy (David Hoflin), while the team comes one step closer to discovering who's behind the mass disappearance that sent more than 300 guards and prisoners from 1963 into the future. Get the scoop on the finale below:
Parminder Nagra, Alcatraz
Finally, Rebecca (Sarah Jones) and Diego (Jorge Garcia) know almost as much as the Alcatraz audience!
After Rebecca ponders what life would be like if she could hit the reset button, the pair finally learned about the colloidal silver, and that Lucy (Parminder Nagra) is... one of the '63s! Oh, and Lucy finally woke up from her coma, thanks to the blood of a '63 named Webb Porter (Rami Malek), a former patient of Lucille's who suffered from a ringing in his ears that drove him insane. Those are just a few of the new mysteries that Alcatraz introduced this week. Let's take a look at the others:

Get ready to find out who is behind that mysterious door on Alcatraz!
The cast and creative minds behind the Fox series were on hand Sunday at WonderCon for a panel, moderated by this reporter, during which they teased the introduction of one of the powerful people pulling the strings. TVGuide.com has learned exclusively that the ...
Sarah Jones and Jorge Garcia
Since this week's episode of Alcatraz was supposed to air before the two-hour special, "Clarence Montgomery" was light on new reveals. We did, however, learn that Warden James (Jonny Coyne) charged Dr. Beauregard (Leon Rippy) with using Lucille's mind-tampering techniques in reverse, causing an actually innocent prisoner to commit murder using the same techniques he was falsely convicted of.
Dissecting Alcatraz's Mysteries: Is the Warden a '63? Or is he pulling the strings?
Since we already learned about the colloidal silver in the prisoners' blood last week, it came as no surprise when Doc (Jorge Garcia) and Rebecca (Sarah Jones) deduced that there were experiments going on at Alcatraz. Thus, a shortened Dissection this week. Check out two of our big questions, along with a few fan theories worth mentioning:
