Will ABC reboot the hit show “Lost” in the near future? It seems unlikely.
“If I was going to do ‘Lost,’ you’d be the first person I’d call,” Higgins said to her colleague. “No, there’s no ‘Lost.’ I don’t know if you could do it again. It’s lightning in a bottle. I think it would be OK, but it would always be compared to the first.”
Higgins said the original “Lost” worked as its own isolated series. Returning to the island for any more adventures wouldn’t work well long-term, she said.
“Leave it alone. Let it be what it was. It was fabulous, it was wonderful. It was, I think, life-changing for a number of people,” Higgins said.
Cuse told The Hollywood Reporter, “I would be fine if ABC hired somebody who had a good idea (to reboot it) involving other characters that go to the island at some other point in time. I would be less excited if they wanted to use the characters that we had in our show.”
Would Cuse be involved in a reboot, though?
“I don’t think so, no,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.
