Could Lost be making a comeback? Recently, executive producer Damon Lindelof spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the chances of a reboot for the ABC series.
The original show followed a diverse group of people who are stranded on a mysterious island after a plane crash. The cast included Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, Josh Holloway, Terry O’Quinn, Daniel Dae Kim, Yunjin Kim, Jorge Garcia, and Dominic Monaghan. The series ended in 2010 after six seasons.
In the interview, Lindelof said there are slim chances of a reboot since many of the original characters died:
Those characters not only died, but we showed you their experience post-death. Any new take on Lost will probably have to feature new characters, as it should.”
However, Lindelof is open to the idea of a new take on the ABC series:
[Executive producer] Carlton [Cuse] and I always said that we welcome any future crack at the [intellectual property]. Lost was bigger than us and bigger than [co-creator] J.J. [Abrams]. There’s something really exciting about the fact that George Lucas sold the Star Wars universe and now the people who grew up watching it are making it. Maybe the same thing could be said for Lost.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Lost? Would you watch a reboot?
I would watch again. I want KATE AND Jack to be other. I was confused at the end. I wasn’t sure who was dead or alive. Please revive the show so that I know who lived. I loved the show.
Find a way to bring back the original cast and I’d watch. Lost was fantastic and it had the perfect cast….but after season 3 it went down hill. Too many new useless people and the ending was dreadful. Season 6 was difficult to sit through. I’m still bummed it ended. I think with the right writers, it could have went on longer and wouldn’t have ended up so messy and overly confusing.
There is no doubt I would watch it, record it, buy it on disc, listen to the pod casts just like the original. It would be amazing if there could be an original idea with a connection to the best show ever. I would do whatever it took to be an extra on the show.
I will absolutely watch a new Lost.
I wouldn’t waste my time. It was a waste of time watching Lost. Totally unrewarding at the end. The writers were completely lost and over their head.
I would love to see lost again the old cast not new they were fantastic they went well together if u remember desmond said see you in another life brother theres a start whose to say they couldnt go to another island from that or ben takes them theres so many possabilitys to come back from producers make the mistake of re making they dont work like nightmare on elm street that was awful
Yes of course I would watch it.. I watched lost years ago and loved it.. And actually about 2 months ago, my boyfriend and I started it from season 1.. He really enjoys watching and I seem to just have fell in love with it all over again.. There is so many things that I don’t remember happening.. It really feels like I myself am watching it for the first time..
Feeling like you are watching it for the first time is blissful! It was one of the best shows of all time. I remember falling in love with the characters and the entire show that first season. If you can recapture that feeling again, all the power to you!!
