Do you want to return to the island? “Lost” producer Carlton Cuse says he thinks it is only a matter of time before the initially beloved and ultimately dividing sci-fi drama gets resurrected.
Cuse tells Digital Spy that the nature of the show should allow for others to come along and deal with the events on the infamous island at different points in time:
“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.
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.”
“Lost” ran for six seasons, ultimately ending in 2010. It regularly scored 15-22 million viewers an episode in its first two seasons, but that number dropped and ultimately hit lows of around 9-10 million by the last two years.
