ABC President Thinks a 'Lost' Reboot Would Be 'Fun'
At this point, pretty much every show ever has -- or is about to be -- rebooted.
And, if the new ABC President Karey Burke has her way, "Lost," which debuted 15(!) years ago to huge ratings, would be one of them.
At the Television Critics Association, Burke said, "It is literally at this point just what I dream about when I go to bed at night." (To be fair, Jack, Sawyer, Sayid, Kate, Boone and most of the cast gave millions of people very pleasant dreams.)
And in the past, Cuse and fellow showrunner Damon Lindelof have insisted they have no interest in revisiting the hit show. Although Cruse has said he wouldn't mind a reboot done by someone else with different characters.
But if there's no Sawyer, Sayid, Charlie, Locke, Desmond, Penny, Sun or Jin... what's the point, exactly?
Burke said she'd also like to reboot another Abrams series, "Alias," adding of both shows: "Nothing to report yet, maybe ever but it would be a fun thing to have a conversation about."
Fifteen years later, "Lost" is still inspiring copycat shows, like this year's "Manifest."
Considering that all the early "Lost" wannabes, like "Flashforward" and "The Event" were quickly canceled, would a new group of castaways really be a hit? The chances of catching lighting in a bottle twice is about as likely as ... finding a polar bear on a tropical island.
Mean while, "Lost" is streaming on Hulu if you want to relive that first Sawyer/Kate kiss, opening the hatch, and "Not Penny's Boat."
