Though TV revivals are all the rage, there is one out there that fans have been wishing for that’s now revealed to be definitely not happening anytime soon – “Lost”.
ABC President Channing Dungey told TV Line that she has no current plans to revive the mysterious island-set series which ended its six-season run in May 2010:
“We have not had any official discussions about that. It’s something that’s on a list of, ‘Wouldn’t that be great if… ,’ but at this point it’s only at that place.”
Carlton Cuse, who executive produced and ran the series alongside Damon Lindelof, recently signed an exclusive four-year deal with ABC last year which is what led to the speculation of a “Lost” return.
Cuse himself also stoked the fire a while back, telling the same outlet that he was excited about the possibility of a new writer creating “their version of Lost”:
“It would be really exciting if there’s another incarnation of Lost, I just won’t have any association with it. Not because I’m too good for it. I just feel like, again, we worked so hard to end our story, that to come back and say, ‘Well, that wasn’t the real ending,’ would be frustrating.”
The entire run of the series recently became available at its new home on Hulu.
