Holy Smoke Monsters! Is ABC Bringing Back Lost?!

| Filed under: TV NewsGIFs

lost jack see you in another life

Excuse us, we just Lost our minds with this potential news!

In a recent interview, one of the EPs of Lost, Carlton Cuse, gave some pretty beguiling 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!

    A reboot of Lost is the most dumbest, and asinine idea ever. Who the heck will even care to watch this?

    Lost got lost in its own plot. Maybe it has just come full circle?

  4. 4

    No one understood the ending of Lost. It was so unclear and there were so many questions left unanswered. Why would we invest ourselves again?

    I absolutely hate the idea of a reboot/spin off or anything of the like. Cuse is right, they closed it out, it's over. I have to say I completely disagree with the assessment that the show's ending couldn't be understood. I think they established what was going on, you might not like it, but they reached closure with the story and explained it all. As for questions going unanswered, that was always a pet peeve of mine. I was along for the ride and thought the writing was strong and the character development as second to anything that's ever been on the telly. The show hit its hiccups when it went into overdrive to lay out answers. Things were fine, all the "we want answers" whiners were annoying as hell and almost drove the writing staff to ruin the show. One of the greatest shows ever, not in the same class as Breaking Bad, The Wire, and Mad Men, but definitely in the next tier.

    Lost was the perfect show. Regardless of what you think of how the final seasons played out, whoever did the casting for that show nailed it perfectly. Every single character had depth, a plethora of emotions, and lots of blood to spill.

    If they do a reboot. it has to have the original cast, and it better start off in that church and explain what the fuck happened.

    Re: mrsg13 – Too get answers. We better get some.

    Also compared to most television right now, It would be a welcome. Considering we live in an age where people don't have anymore original ideas in television and movies I guess, at least this is something worthwhile.

    Kate's ass doesn't hurt either

    I hate myself for clicking on a link to this. This is completely offhand speculation. There is absolutely no evidence that abc or any writers are even thinking about it
