Lost return is inevitable: Carlton Cuse compares show to Narnia novels

October 6th, 2014 by Todd Black Comments

Towards the end of its run, …it seemed like ’Lost’ was losing its way. However,

Carlton Cuse, the exec producer and co-writer of ‘Lost’, has claimed that it is “inevitable” that the show will return in some form in the future.

Ten years on from the show’s premiere on ABC in America, Carlton Cuse has spoke out and has been comparing the mysterious and massively successful fantasy series to CS Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia. Furthermore, Cuse has also some insight into the possibility of re-visiting the franchise implementing different writers and looking at the island from different perspectives:

This is what Cuse had to say on the possibility or revisiting the franchise:

“Disney owns the franchise, it made them a lot of money, it’s hard to imagine it will just sit there idly forever,” he said.

“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 seen 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.”

Hmmm, we’re not so sure about this, as the last couple of seasons more or less dragged in. Although it ought to please the die hard fans of the series.
