Matthew Fox will return to television with his first role since “Lost” ended in 2010 after joining a new series headed to the Peacock network….
It’s been 11 years since “Lost” came to an end, which was also the last time series star Matthew Fox appeared on television series but that will change very soon.
Fox has been cast in the lead for the new apocalyptic thriller limited series “Last Light,” which will air on the Peacock network streaming service.
Here’s the synopsis for “Last Light” from Peacock:
“Petro-chemist Andy Nielsen knows how dependent the world is on oil; if something were to happen to the world’s oil supply, it would set off a chain reaction: transportation would grind to a halt, supplies would cease to be delivered, law enforcement would be overwhelmed. While on a business trip to the Middle East, Andy realizes that his worst fears are coming true and his family is separated at this crucial moment. His teenage daughter, Laura, is alone at home in London while his wife, Elena, and young son, Sam, are in Paris. Amid this chaos, each family member will sacrifice everything to find one another, despite the distance and the dangers that separate them.”
Fox will star as series lead Andy Nielsen while also serving as an executive producer on the show with “Downton Abbey” star Joanne Froggatt starring as his wife.
Following the conclusion of “Lost” in 2010, Fox largely disappeared from film and television roles with his last appearance coming in the 2015 western horror film “Bone Tomahawk” where he starred alongside Kurt Russell.
He’s also stayed out of the public light over the years, rarely making appearances but now Fox will return to television for the limited series that will shoot in Prague in the coming months. There’s no debut date for the series just yet.
