Alcatraz Season 2 could have been the new Lost

Stars Sam Neill and Jorge Garcia teases the direction of JJ Abrams’ Alcatraz Season 2, and say it’s “brilliant”. Do you think the show should be allowed more time to fulfil its potential?

Jurassic Park star Sam Neill, who plays FBI Agent Hauser in JJ Abrams‘ Alcatraz, revealed that had the show not been cancelled Alcatraz Season 2 would have been one to watch out for

Now I know where Alcatraz was heading in Season 2,” said Neill. “Brilliant ! Might tell you one day…”

He added mischievously, “Well , Hauser leaves the FBI and takes up interior decorating as a career , the Warden becomes a social worker… Nah, just pulling your leg.”

Jorge Garcia, who famously played Hurley in JJ Abrams other mystery island, Lost, implied that the mythology of the show was set to get equally complex.

“Kinda got my mind blown tonight at dinner. [Co-creator and executive producer] Bryan Wynbrandt explained the mythology behind Alcatraz. Guess what. It’s Purgatory,” he joked, adding, “Alcatraz wasn’t purgatory. Alcatraz was limbo.”

Whatever the case, it’s clear Alcatraz Season 2 was on the way to being must-watch TV, every bit as talked about as Lost.
