ABC’s President REALLY wants to bring back Lost

February 12th, 2019 by Marc Comments

One of TV’s biggest event shows ever was Lost.

True, in the end, it tripped itself up – much like Battlestar Galactica – but during its run it was a glorious headscratcher that raised questions and gave answers that only raised additional questions.

The concept was a simple one… a passenger jet crashes on a mysterious island – so mysterious that, to all intents and purposes it doesn’t exist at all –  and the survivors must come together to survive as something menacing lurks in the woods.

Each survivior has secrets and seems to have a reason to be there… but why? Are they dead? Is it aliens?! What is going on?!

Well, it seems that we aren’t the only ones pondering these things and finding ourselves wanting to go back to the island.

ABC President Karey Burke has recently admitted that Lost “is a reboot I’d be interested in seeing.”

You and us both!

“It is literally at this point just what I dream about when I go to bed at night,” Burke said.

“I have not spoken to Carlton [Cuse] or J.J. [Abrams] or ABC Studios about it.”

While creators Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof have said in the past they will never go back to the island, they both sadi they’d be happy for someone to pick up the story and run with it as long as it remains faithful to the original show.

“I do often get the question what show would I reboot and often my answer is Lost, sometimes Alias,” Burke said.

“Nothing to report yet, maybe ever but it would be a fun thing to have a conversation about.”

Of all the shows we would love to see return, Lost is defintitely top ten stuff… we always felt the finale didn’t really answer anything at all and, as such, we feel the island and the surviviors have more of a story to tell.

Would you like to be Lost again? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
