Abrams admitted that he had never expected fans to get so involved in the drama, which came to a close last year.
"[Lost] was very much about faith versus science, and the notion of who has a profound impact on your life and how these characters form a kind of tapestry," he told The Guardian.
"When you do a show that has that kind of ongoing conversation, the audience not only invests in the show in ways that you could never anticipate, but also makes connections to things that you may not have even considered."
Abrams admitted that fans have complained to him about the way the show ended but suggested that they are just upset that the series had come to a close.
"For years I had people praising Lost to death, and now they say, 'I'm so p*ssed at you for the end of Lost'," he said. "I think a lot of people who were upset with the ending were just upset that it ended. And I've not yet heard the pitch of what the ending should have been. I've just heard, 'That sucked'."
Abrams is currently working on two new television series, Person of Interest and Alcatraz.
