Damon Lindelof, executive producer of the hit TV show Lost, recently discussed the possibility of a reboot. Lost, which followed a group of strangers stranded on a mysterious island, was a popular ensemble drama that aired on ABC. Lindelof revealed that if a reboot were to happen, he hopes it doesn't feature the same characters from the original series.
Lindelof explained that the team had worked hard to give the characters closure and to bring the story to an end in the original show. He expressed concern that bringing back the original characters might undermine the closure they had achieved. There had been some debate among fans about whether the ending provided enough closure, but Lindelof believed they had done their best.
While Lindelof acknowledged that it would be exciting to see another incarnation of Lost, he stated that he would not be associated with it. He explained that it was not because he considered himself too good for it, but rather because he felt returning and saying that the original ending wasn't the true one would be frustrating.
Lindelof's comments indicated his care for the story and characters of Lost. He wanted to ensure that any potential reboot respected the work that had been done in the original series. While a Lost reboot may still happen in the future, it seems unlikely to include the same characters or have involvement from Lindelof himself.
