We're not so sure how to feel about this...
Excuse us, we just Lost our minds with this potential news!
"I think it’s likely that at some point, ABC will want to reboot Lost because it’s a valuable franchise, and there will be some young, bright writer or writers who will come up with a great idea that the network responds to, and that’ll be great. I do not begrudge ABC the opportunity to do something more with the franchise. But we told the story we wanted to tell, and I think there’s kind of a wonderful sense of closure for us. I feel like there’s not a moment where I certainly say, 'Oh, hey, I wish we had told this story' or 'I regret that we didn’t get to do this or that.' I feel like we had ample opportunity to tell all the stories that we wanted to tell."
Okay, so to recap, because the above statement is a little enigmatic (just like Lost): a Lost reboot is "likely," but not definite, and judging by what Carlton said, it will probably not involve the original creators.
Well, this is a twist we didn't expect, but we're just grateful for the possibility of a Lost reboot!
