Along with the premiere date [2/2/10], today also brings the official cast list, meaning we now can confirm which cast members are official series regulars for the final year.
The season 6 cast is:
Naveen Andrews, Nestor Carbonell, Emilie de Ravin, Michael Emerson, Jeff Fahey, Matthew Fox, Jorge Garcia, Josh Holloway, Daniel Dae Kim, Yunjin Kim, Ken Leong, Evangeline Lilly, Terry O’Quinn and Ziuleikha Robinson
In case you forgot, that last woman plays Ilana from Ajira 316.
In other words, the final season has 14 series regulars, just like season 1. However, only 9 of them were around back then.
It also marks the first time Carbonell and Fahey (Richard and Frank) are series regulars, they were always listed as guest stars before.
What do I take away from this? Mostly that, with Carboell, O’Quinn, Fahey, Emerson, Robinson and Yunjin Kim all listed, we will probably still see them on the Island in 2007.
However, the return of de Ravin and the lack of Mitchell and many DHARMA folks suggests to me that all those theories about the bomb working and changing the future so Oceanic 815 lands safely are true.
But then how the heck are Locke and Sun still on the Island? I can’t explain it, except that we may be dealing with weird parallel universes.
