* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** In the event that the show be CutShort partway through the first season, then plan was to reveal the island to be in TheBermudaTriangle.
** There was a planned subplot, revealed at ComicCon, that had the DHARMA researchers know that a StableTimeLoop was going on, and that they would perish. It was dropped, due to time constraints and new writers.
** The original mythology was going to be much more sci-fi oriented.
** Creator/JenniferJasonLeigh was approached to play the part of Libby, but she declined.
** Creator/KristenBell was originally offered the role of Charlotte, but she chose ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' instead.
** In the original description for Kate, she was a slightly older woman separated from her husband, who went to the bathroom in the tail-section of the plane. However, that idea ended up being used for the character Rose.
** Eko was originally to be named "Emeka".
** The character of Sawyer was originally meant to be an older, slick, suit-wearing city con artist from Buffalo, NY. However, when Josh Holloway forgot a line at his audition and subsequently kicked a chair in frustration and loudly swore, the writers liked the edge he brought to the Sawyer character and decided to write Sawyer as more of a Southern, darker grifter instead.
** The original name of Charlie's band was "The Petting Zoo". This had to be changed, however, when it transpired that there really is a band called "The Petting Zoo".
** Yunjin Kim originally read for the character of Kate. The producers felt she was not what they were looking for in Kate, but decided to create a new character for her, along with a spouse.
** Jorge Garcia, Matthew Fox and Dominic Monaghan all auditioned originally for the part of Sawyer as the other characters had not been developed yet.
** Originally, Creator/MichaelKeaton was cast as Jack. In the first draft of the script Jack was to be killed by the monster after they arrived at the cockpit. ABC told the producers that they shouldn't kill off the hero so soon in the series and the script was changed. After the change, Michael Keaton backed out of the role since he did not want to commit to a regular series.
** Creator/ForestWhitaker was originally cast in the role of Sawyer, but opted out of the role to direct ''Film/FirstDaughter''.
** Dominic Monaghan originally auditioned for the role of Sawyer, who was originally supposed to be a suit-wearing city con man. The producers were so enthused by Monaghan that the part of Charlie was altered to accommodate him - Charlie was originally going to be a 45-year-old washed-up rock star.
** Originally Kate was supposed to have been a thirty something businesswoman whose husband had died in the crash. When Jack died in the original script Kate would have become the leader of the group.
** Originally, Ilana was set to be Jacob's daughter, but the writers ran out of time to explain this plot, so they decided to kill her and focus on the big season plot.
** In original drafts for the show, Rousseau's team of scientists were studying time. The network told the writers not to include it in the show, in case the viewers would think it too science fiction and stop watching.
** The climactic battle in the series finale was going to happen during a volcanic eruption, which was planned early enough for a passing mention of volcanic activity in Season 3. ABC ultimately refused to okay the budget for it, which Lindeloff and Cuse quickly realized was a good thing as the lava battle from ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' would be fresh in everyone's minds and they never could have measured up to it.
