A LOST Revival in the making?

A LOST Revival in the making?

Hey guys and gals! How are we all doing? It’s been a long time since I last posted here, but wanted to share something with you that I read a couple of days ago about the potential for a LOST revival.

A post I saw at Nerdist discusses the possibility of there being a LOST revival at some point in the future.

They mention three different types of story that could be told LOST were to come back:

One: “A full reboot that would jettison everything from the first series, save perhaps for the island and some of the mythology.”

Two: “A revival with the surviving characters, but it would be hard to pull off since the cast has long since moved on.”

Three: “The most enticing choice would be a sequel series that would focus on new characters on the island while allowing some of the older characters to potentially reprise their roles as well.”

What do you think? I love the idea of a sequel series bringing in a whole new cast but with the potential of old favourites returning (Ben, Desmond, Hurley etc.). It would be a great opportunity to tie up some of the mysteries that remain unsolved whilst unraveling new mysteries that we could sink our teeth in to! As long as they do it right, I think it could be great!

I remember when LOST ended there were fans discussing the potential of some spin off shows: Ben and Hurley on the Island, The Dharma Initiative etc. which at the time would have been great, but I think now a sequel series would be more appropriate.

I have no idea if there will be a LOST revival in the future but knowing that it’s being talked is promising!

What do you think? Do you think a LOST revival is a good idea, or do you think it should be left well alone? 🙂

  1. What I expect is a denouement in the form of a feature film. It doesn’t need a new TV series. I don’t know why it hasn’t been done already.

    It would not take much exposition to make explicit the hidden plot that the clues point to. In fact it could be done as a short subject. It would take another DVD commentary track the length of the entire series, or even longer (like the commentary on the pilot episode) to explain all the clues, however! An encyclopedic video on the background would have to include “Hamlet”, “North By Northwest”, several episodes of “Department S”, “Jonathan Creek”, and various other predecessor works. plus text files of novels, non-fiction, and short stories and/or videos of their movie adaptations.
