Brian K. Vaughan, who joined “Lost” as the hot writing commodity responsible for “Y: Last the Last Man” and “Ex Machina” and expanded his writing résumé into network television over the show’s last several seasons, reportedly will not be contributing at the writers’ table for Season 6.
“Unfortunately he has left for greener pastures,” the series’ executive producer Damon Lindelof told fans during a Q&A Session at Curzon Cinema.
Vaughan’s presence on the writing staff was felt throughout recent seasons, not only as a result of his often hyper-pop-culturally-aware dialog and knack for cliffhanger plot twists, but also from such subtle visual cues as Hugo’s reading habits. The fact that Hugo, played by actor Jorge Garcia, was the one reading “Y: The Last Man” at the airport was probably no accident.
“When [Vaughan] first came on the show Jorge Garcia was ecstatic because he’s a huge fan of his work,” Lindelof told the podcast.
