Today, serialized dramas can be found all over the television landscape, with shows such as Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, and Severance demanding viewers watch episodes in chronological order to understand what’s going on in the plot. This wasn’t always the case, however, and can widely be attributed to the success of the hit ABC drama series Lost, which was created and developed for television by Jeffrey Lieber, Damon Lindelof, and J.J. Abrams.

Lost Is Streaming In Disney+’s Hulu Section

Lost ran for six seasons from 2004 until 2010, revolutionized the television landscape, and is still widely regarded as one of the best TV shows of all time.

Lost is currently available to stream through the Hulu section of Disney+, which is still currently in beta, and requires a subscription to both streaming services to use.

Despite the difficulty in accessing the section, the Hulu through Disney library is a great intersection of properties with shared ownership rights, including films such as Pacific Rim, Boss Level, and many others.

Lost Is Bingeworthy

Lost is considered one of the best binge-worthy shows ever, making it the perfect excuse to sign up for a new streaming service if you’re still on the fence.

Lost stars Josh Holloway, Evangeline Lilly, Yunjin Kim, Terry O’Quinn,
Matthew Fox, and Bookie‘s Jorge Garcia.

Much like other long-running shows such as Game Of Thrones, the mythology of Lost has been expanded upon in many multimedia installments, such as books, YouTube analysis videos, and a series of ABC mini-episodes titled Missing Pieces.

Award-Winning Series

The show also took home dozens of prestigious awards, including Primetime Emmys, British Academy Television Awards, Golden Globes, and SAG awards.

Though Lost developed a penchant for frustrating fans in the later seasons with never-ending twists and convoluted plot lines, the show remains a fan favorite to this day and continues to be hailed as ahead of its time.

Frustrating Series?

If the show had premiered during the streaming era, it likely wouldn’t have inspired the same level of frustration from the masses, as weekly gaps between unresolved cliffhangers have essentially become a thing of the past.

The series also launched the co-creators’ respective careers, with J.J. Abrams especially going on to become a household name.

Critical Smash And Now On Streaming


Lost currently holds an 86 percent certified fresh critic score on the review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes and continues to wow audiences to this day.

If you’ve never had the pleasure of catching the shocking twists and turns of this compelling narrative, or are just long overdue for a rewatch, Lost is currently available to stream in the Hulu section of Disney+.
