‘LOST’ Creator Talks Revival: Hopes It WON’T See The Return Of Original Characters

With a revival of popular ABC hit ‘LOST’ on the fringe of happening, the show’s original co-creator Damon Lindelof hopes that a reboot won’t feature any of our old favorites.

At its prime, LOST was one of the top shows in the world for ratings, though they dropped towards the latter stages of the shows span of 6 seasons. However, American Broadcasting Company (ABC) do not wish to end the series where it currently stands, and a reboot has been in the works for a while now. All talk of this consider it to be a ‘Revival’, but it most likely won’t contain any one we know (not even the original writer Damon Lindelof), so it’ll have more of a spin-off feel to it.

Speaking with TVLine, LOST co-creator Damon Lindelof claimed he wishes that a new writer will not pull any characters from the original series as he worked so hard in giving them closure, he said:

“I’ve thought about it a lot. [I’m] curious and excited [about the possibility of the franchise spawning a second TV series. [I] hope that when that happens, whoever is doing it, doesn’t take the characters from the original Lost and put them in the new one. Because we worked so hard to end that show and to give [the survivors] some level of closure. I know there was some debate as to whether or not there was enough closure…”

Lindelof continued by saying that despite the project would be ‘exciting’, he won’t take any part in a new series should it happen, addressing the fact that he closed the show the way he wanted to, and wants to keep it that way. See below:

“It would be really exciting if there’s another incarnation of Lost, I just won’t have any association with it. Not because I’m too good for it. I just feel like, again, we worked so hard to end our story, that to come back and say, ‘Well, that wasn’t the real ending,’ would be frustrating.”

  1. They need to cast actor Jon Mankuta (Hollywood Treasure, VEEP) if they’re going back to the island…he played one of the last surviving Others from the Temple scenes of Season 6, so his character would still be on the island as would a few of the “other” Others…We also don’t know much about that faction of Temple Others so it could be an interesting untapped avenue to explore and way better an option than screwing with the already beloved main cast of survivors…

  2. I would watch out of curiosity but it wouldn’t be the same. We had good closure with prior characters but might be interesting if children of Lost returned to the island. Perhaps there would finally be an explanation for Jack’s son, David.

  3. It would have to be highly engaging and character development should be quick. Oh, you betcha we would watch.
