Naveen Andrews, who plays Sayid on ABC's Lost, told SCI FI Wire that he believes the network may be mulling a later start date for the upcoming fourth season, which would begin in January and run straight without a break, similar to Fox's 24 airing schedule.

"I believe that's the plan," Andrews said in an interview.

This year, Lost premiered in the fall, ran for six weeks, then took a 13-week hiatus before returning in March with original episodes. The show also moved to a later timeslot, Wednesdays at 10 p.m.

"I think they should make it sort of like what it was before," Andrews opined. "I liked it when it started a little bit earlier, because a lot of the audience are kids, aren't they? I thought, hmm."

ABC recently announced that it was renewing Lost, but made no mention of start dates or timeslotes.
