Is It Too Soon For A 'Lost' Revival?by

You only have to look at a variety of movies and TV shows released over the past few years to realize that nostalgia is still a very big draw – and an even more viable option, it seems, is for existing intellectual property to get the reboot treatment. Sometimes, this can involve completely changing an original premise leading with a mere title alone – Jumanji, out later this year, appears to fall into this category, with the classic 90s movie being reworked for a generation of viewers more used to playing video games than board games. But just how much time is considered enough before a reboot or re-imagining can come into play? Nostalgia comes in what appears to be twenty-year waves – so, with that considered, is talk of a revival of ABC’s ‘Lost’ far too eager?

Rest easy, fans and – indeed – those who disliked the divisive yet arguably game-changing TV drama. There’s no talk just yet, in any official capacity, as to whether or not we’ll be returning to the mysterious island any time soon. After all, the show has only been off the air seven years – and while it is a mind-boggling thirteen years since the passengers of the ill-fated Flight 815 crash-landed in the middle of nowhere, it still seems rather fresh to be considering a reboot or a revival. Co-creator Damon Lindelof openly discussed the possibility of a revival for the series with TVLine – and while he stated that he was ‘excited’ about the idea of reviving the show, he assured that he would not have any part in it. This, according to Lindelof, is largely due to the fact that the original characters, and story lines, have been tied up.

Therefore, what worth would there be in bringing Lost back at this point? While much of the mysteries were resolved (to an extent, in any case), there may be little interest in seeing the same band of characters again – particularly after the show’s finale gave them all – more or less – a finite ending. If the show is to come back in any form, it may be likely that it focuses on a new group of people, or a new island altogether – or, perhaps to the chagrin of die-hard fans, a tongue-in-cheek movie reboot. It may not be happening any time soon, but let’s face it – in this day and age, everything gets rebooted eventually.
