Television networks have been keen to bolster their lineups with revivals such as The X-Files, Will & Grace and the upcoming Roseanne. Ironically, however, a flashback is not in the cards for ABC's Lost -- at least not any time soon.
In an interview with TVLine, ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey was asked whether fans might be booking a return trip to the mystical island of polar bears and smoke monsters now that Lost co-creator Carlton Cuse has returned to the network under a four-year contract. "We have not had any official discussions about that," Dungey said. "It’s something that’s on a list of, 'Wouldn’t that be great if …,' but at this point it’s only at that place."
Should a relaunch eventually take place, it would likely be without the assistance of co-creator Damon Lindelof. The writer/producer, who is developing a Watchmen series for HBO, also told TVLine, "It would be really exciting if there’s another incarnation of Lost, I just won’t have any association with it. Not because I’m too good for it. I just feel like, again, we worked so hard to end our story, that to come back and say, ‘Well, that wasn’t the real ending,’ would be frustrating."
