It’s already been over a decade since LOST first premiered back in September of 2004, and over four years since the show ended in May of 2010. But according to Carlton Cuse, who was co-showrunner with Damon Lindelof, the show will likely be back at some point.
Cuse isn’t talking about a return of the characters we know and love from the show, of course, but other stories involving that infamous island as told by others. And why not? Click on over to the other side to see what he said about the likely return of LOST one day.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Cuse said:
“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.”
He then expanded on the thought with a Chronicles of Narnia comparison:
“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.”
Would you be excited to see LOST return with new characters and stories, or would you rather it remain what it was and is now?
