For the last six years, fans of 'Lost' have been desperately trying to figure out the seemingly endless number of mysteries presented by the convoluted cult hit. What do the numbers mean? Where did the polar bear come from? What is the smoke monster? Now, as these questions are finally being answered, the biggest question of all is about to be addressed: What does Jimmy Kimmel have to do with it?

Well, wonder no more: According to Entertainment Weekly, the host of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' will be following the 'Lost' series finale with a post-show special featuring live interviews with the show's stars as well as with the masterminds behind the mysteries, 'Lost' executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse.For the last six years, fans of 'Lost' have been desperately trying to figure out the seemingly endless number of mysteries presented by the convoluted cult hit.

Well, wonder no more: According to Entertainment Weekly, the host of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' will be following the 'Lost' series finale with a post-show special featuring live interviews with the show's stars as well as with the masterminds behind the mysteries, 'Lost' executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse.

This isn't new ground for Kimmel, who has been one of the show's most high-profile fans, frequently interviewing cast members, creating 'Lost' spoof videos and even traveling to the set in 2005 for an extended behind-the-scenes look at the filming process. Despite Kimmel's relationship with the show, however, the idea of a post-show live episode does carry some risks: A similar special hosted by Jay Leno immediately following the series finale of 'Cheers' famously turned into a network embarrassment for NBC when the overly jubilant cast got decidedly drunk on camera.

Of course, that was perfectly in keeping with the bar theme of 'Cheers,' so here's hoping history doesn't repeat itself. Otherwise, Kimmel may find himself interviewing the most unexpected 'Lost' star of all: a giant pillar of murderous smoke.

You can find out for yourself when Kimmel's 'Lost' wrap-up show airs at the special time of 11:35 on May 23.
