Karey Burke, the new president of ABC, has revealed that she is “interested” in a reboot of the hit TV series Lost.
Lost has been one of the biggest shows of the 21st century, a true pop culture phenomenon that entertained fans around the world. While the island-set series went off the boil in it’s last few seasons, Lost initially gripped audiences like few other shows have managed.
During a recent Television Critics Association press tour (via The Wrap), a montage of shows from ABC was played and a famous line from protagonist Jack (Matthew Fox) was included: “We have to go back”.
Does any of this mean anything? Well, ABC president Karey Burke was naturally asked about a potential reboot: “I would like that very much. That would be something I would be interested in seeing. It is literally, at this point, what I dream about when I go to bed. I have not spoken to Carlton [Cuse, former showrunner], or J.J. Abrams or ABC Studios about it. But I do often get asked the question what show I would reboot and my answer is Lost.”
There you have it. It’s at least on the radar! Would you be interested in revisiting Lost in some capacity? Let us know in the comments below or tweet us @FlickeringMyth…
