Elizabeth Mitchell’s days on “Lost” aren’t over just yet.
In the closing seconds of the Season 5 finale of the ABC show, Mitchell’s character, Juliet, appeared to detonate an atomic bomb in an attempt to reboot the island’s timeline.
But at Saturday’s ABC Television Critics Association panel in Pasadena, Calif., to promote her new show, the retooled alien invasion drama “V,” Mitchell said she’s got a lot of filming still left to do as “Lost’s” Juliet.
“I will actually be back on ‘Lost.’ I am going to be traveling to Hawaii more than once,” she said of the show’s production location. “It did seem I kaboomed myself with a bomb. I don’t think it’s going to be that way. So we’ll see how that plays out.”
However, she wouldn’t say what her appearance would mean.
“I can’t say whether I’m dead or not,” she said. “But as in all things in ‘Lost,’ it will be fairly tricky.”
In the meantime, Mitchell will star in “V” alongside Scott Wolf and Morena Baccarin, beginning Nov. 3.
And she won’t be the only “Lost” star to pull double duty in the coming months.
Ian Somerhalder, who stars on The CW’s new fall series “Vampire Diaries,” confirmed to Access Hollywood at the San Diego Comic-Con that he would return as Boone. And Dominic Monaghan, who played Charlie, has been heavily rumored for a return despite his role on ABC’s new drama “FlashForward.”
Both Boone and Charlie died on previous seasons of the show but, like a number of characters, have made mysterious appearances since.
As for Monaghan, he said after Saturday’s TCA panel for “FlashForward” that he would enjoy returning — but couldn’t promise it.
“I don’t know,” he said when asked if he’d be back. “I had a great time on that show. I love the character. It’s a great character and it’s a character I enjoyed playing. It was a great time in my life and it’s the last season so if they wanted to do it it’s their last chance.”
The sixth and final season of “Lost” begins in early 2010.
