I loved Lost, I loved every episode, and while many have complained that the ending was a cop out, there is no denying that for the most part the show delivered some of the best examples of TV brilliance ever. Would I want to go back the The Island? Oh hell yeah I would!
The show left many questions un-answered, and there are so many other angles that could be explored, I am confused at why we have not gone back sooner. Whether a new cast would be able to get viewers to excited as the original cast did remains to be seen, but sure I would love to see Lost return.
Executive producer Carlton Cuse seems to think that a return to The Island is very likely, and in an interview with Digital Spy, he revealed:
“Disney owns the franchise, it made them a lot of money, it’s hard to imagine it will just sit there idly forever.
Damon (Lindelof) 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 story.
It’s like the Narnia chronicles. There are seven books, they were all written by CS Lewis, but they all visit Narnia at different times and different configurations and different ways.
Someone is going to come up with a way to tell another Lost story. 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”
While this is not exactly confirmation that a new series will ever happen, it excites me that this is still being talked about, and I don’t see why the show cannot be given another chance.
24 had a revival earlier this year, and it was one of the best seasons I have seen, almost reaching the heights of seasons 1-5, so I would definitely like to see the same happen for Lost.
