A little over 10 years ago, ABC unleashed a phenomenon onto the world: Lost. Labeled as a series so high risk that its $13 million pilot ended up getting a network executive fired, the series became a cultural icon, and the shining example of television’s newly founded “Golden Age.” Now, as we look back on the beloved drama, many are starting to wonder if the series is truly over. Have we really seen all there is to see of the mysterious island and the marooned passengers of Oceanic Flight 815? Not according to statements made by executive producer Carlton Cuse.
In an interview with Digital Spy, Cuse stated the following in regards to the possible return of the franchise:
“I think it’s inevitable… I don’t know what it is or how it would work, but I can’t imagine something else won’t be done with the franchise.” He went on to add “Disney owns the franchise, it made them a lot of money, it’s hard to imagine it will just sit there idly forever. Damon and I told our story in that world and I assume someone will come along, hopefully having been inspired by our story, or our version of the story, and want to tell their own.”
Considering we live in an age where the likes of Veronica Mars are getting feature-length continuations of their journey, surely there’s some merit to Cuse’s statements. Whether it comes in the form of an all out reboot or direct-to-video continuation, there’s no way Lost will stay dormant until the end of time. So the only question is who will be the one to take control, and in what form?
