Carlton Cuse: ‘Lost’ Return Is ‘Inevitable’

Carlton Cuse has said it before and he’ll say it again. The “Lost” co-exec producer and co-writer is confident that the show will find new life in the near future. Ten years after the show’s premiere on ABC, he’s gone as far as calling its return “inevitable.”

In an interview with Digital Spy, Cuse said someone else will surely tell another “Lost” story.

“I think it’s inevitable,” he told Digital Spy. “I don’t know what it is or how it would work, but I can’t imagine something else won’t be done with the franchise.”

And although Cuse and co-showrunner Damon Lindelof may not be a part of any future hypothetical projects, Cuse, who’s worked on a reboot of his own as the co-exec producer/co-writer behind the “Psycho” TV show prequel “Bates Motel,” said he’d like someone else to revisit the series.

“Disney owns the franchise, it made them a lot of money, it’s hard to imagine it will just sit there idly forever,” he said. “Damon and I told our story in that world and I assume someone will come along, hopefully having been inspired by our story, or our version of the story, and want to tell their own story.”

Because of its complicated mythology and multilayered universe, Cuse said the hit series is akin to C.S. Lewis’ “Chronicles of Narnia.” Others could re-imagine the “Lost” island from various vantage points.

“It’s like the ‘Narnia’ chronicles,” he said. “There are seven books, they were all written by C.S. Lewis, but they all visit Narnia at different times and different configurations and different ways.”
