Shut up, Carlton Cuse, before you start giving Disney ideas. The Lost showrunner thinks it is “inevitable” that the show will get a reboot. Speaking to Digital Spy, the television executive commented about the ABC series, “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…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.”
Cuse even name-checked C.S. Lewis to further his view that we will one day be back on the island. “It’s like the Narnia chronicles. There are seven books, they were all written by C.S. Lewis, but they all visit Narnia at different times and different configurations and different ways.” The question is if the show does get revived, would there be anyone left on the island? Weren’t they all dead? Or in limbo? Or something? Is a return to the island a flashback, a flash forward, or a flash-sideways? I really don’t want to go back, but perhaps Matthew Fox does; he might need the work. After all, he only got thirty seconds of screentime in World War Z.
