Here’s the latest updates about bringing back the global phenomenon.
The era seems rife with — and ripe for — reboots and revivals of all kinds. Right from ‘Roseanne’ to ‘Full House’ to ‘Saved by the Bell’ and so many more, it’s been raining reboots and revivals from all over. But what when it comes to one of the most-watched and loved shows of all time? ‘Lost’ premiered in 2004 and ended after season 6 in 2010, not wincing before captivating and then baffling its viewers. There was lots to be had here: time travel, paranormal phenomena, and even some drama. While the show wrapped up with an ending that couldn’t have been more definite than the title of its last episode which was called “The End”, there still remain questions about the plot points. Yes, even 10 years after it was concluded.
- ‘Lost’ revival or ‘Lost’ reboot?
- When could it return?
Questions that, fans believe, may well be answered with a ‘Lost’ revival. So what’s the ‘Lost’ season 7 revival status like? We provide all the answers!
‘Lost’ revival or ‘Lost’ reboot?
Rumours and questions about the ‘Lost’ renewal have been around barely two years after the show’s official closure. But the TV series’ ex-showrunner Carlton Cuse said in an interview,
“It is the end of the story that we wanted to tell and we had no plans to go back and revisit it.”
He was actually only reiterating what some of the show’s other executives and creators have said about the show.
But wait, stick with us. Upsetting as this may sound, there’s more to this. ‘Lost’ executive Damon Lindelof said in 2017 in another interview that a ‘Lost’ revival would have to have a new cast and characters. It would be a reboot with new faces, rather than a continuation of the story, rather than a sequel or spin-off. Although this is still speaking in the air in a sense, this does bode well for fans since the makers of the show seem to be interested in going back to the show.
When and where could it return?
We can’t tell you when as of now, but pertaining to where, we might have an idea. Cuse has referenced the network ABC for being interested in the franchise. Said he,
“I think it’s likely that at some point, ABC will want to reboot Lost because it’s a valuable franchise.”
What does ABC have to say to that? Channing Dungey, ABC’s now ex-president, told “TVLine” that at the time, they hadn’t had any official discussions about a ‘Lost’ reboot.
“It’s something that’s on a list of, ‘Wouldn’t that be great if… ,” but at this point it’s only at that place,”
Since these last few years have indeed seen lots of reboots, there is a chance that a highly lucrative fan-favourite show such as ‘Lost’ could be renewed. Until then, fingers crossed!
