NEW YORK, March 17 (UPI) -- "Lost" showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse marked 10 years since the show's premier by addressing some of the lingering questions of fans in New York.

Lindelof and Cuse, appearing alongside some of the show's stars at PaleyFest Sunday, took the opportunity to clear up some confusion about whether the characters were dead the entire time, E! Online reported Monday.

"No, no, no. They were not dead the whole time," Cuse said.

"At the end of the series finale, [an ABC exec] thought it would be good to have a buffer between when you have the end of the show and when they cut to say, a Clorox commercial," Cuse said. "We didn't have a lot of extra footage lying around, but we had footage of the plane wreckage on the beach," which they shot when the plane needed to be moved or it would have been washed out to sea. We thought, let's put those shots at the end of the show and it will be a little buffer and lull. And when people saw the footage of the plane with no survivors, it exacerbated the problem."

Lindelof said the creators are remaining mum on the subject of who was firing on the characters during Season 5's outrigger battle, at least for now. He said the answer was written into one of the show's scripts, but never shot.

"It was a cool answer but what's cooler is to not answer it ... We will probably auction [the script] off for a great charity cause a few years from now," he said.
