Could a LOST Revival Be Coming Back To TV?

We have to go back! It hasn’t even been a decade since fans escaped the island from Lost, and yet there’s already speculation about a potential reboot or a revival series at some point in the future. Hollywood just loves to resurrect old brands even when they’re relatively young. Former Lost co-showrunner, Carlton Cuse, recently resigned with ABC for the next few years, which has seemingly only reignited the Lost rumors. Today’s Nerdist News is moving the island and blowing up Dr. Arzt to determine the probability of a new Lost series.

Join guest host and Dharma Initiative graduate, Amy Vorpahl, as she runs down the latest developments. ABC President Channing Dungey told TVLine that there are no official plans to bring back Lost, but he added that “it’s something that’s on a list of, ‘Wouldn’t that be great if…,” which suggests that ABC has at least entertained the possibility of a new series.

Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof has previously thrown his support behind the idea of someone revisiting the concepts and mythology of the series, even though he has no desire to revisit it. The compelling characters and mysteries of Lost helped it become a true water cooler show, and that would be hard for anyone to replicate.

If ABC does decide to move forward with another round of Lost, there are at least three paths that it can take. One would be a full reboot that would jettison everything from the first series, save perhaps for the island and some of the mythology. A revival with the surviving characters is a very slight possibility, but it would be harder to pull off since the cast has long since moved on. The most enticing choice would be a sequel series that would focus on new characters on the island while allowing some of the older characters to potentially reprise their roles as well.
