Yes, Freckles, you read that right. Former Lost producer Carlton Cuse believes the infamously convoluted, widely beloved, island-based TV show starring Josh Holloway, Evangeline Lilly and Matthew Fox could be ripe for more reaping.
The show, which ran for six years on ABC, spawned some of the most complex, head-scratching content audiences had ever seen, with threats ranging from a treacherous smoke monster and a cursed numerical sequence to suicidal embryos. Set upon an (initially) seemingly deserted island, the narrative circulates around survivors of a plane crash who are forced to cooperate with one another in order to survive; of course, that wasn't always the case.

Talking to ComicBook, Cuse spoke of #Lost and enthused over the freedom ABC allowed him and co-creator Deamon Lindelof:
"For Damon and myself, we really feel like we were given an incredible opportunity to tell the story we wanted to tell. It was really the first network show where we sort of dictated our own end date. We told the story we wanted to tell. To this date, there has not been any effort or any talk between us about doing anything else."
He then moved on to discuss the potential for Lost's return, or rather the return of its world:
"I do believe at some future point, someone else will do something in the LOST world and that's okay. There probably are some young wonderful writers out there. Maybe Damien Chazelle would like to do a musical in the world of LOST, I don't know. He's free to do it."
Tbh, the idea of a Lost musical is making my brain do cartwheels already and not necessarily in a good way. What would that look like? Would Ben Linus dance? Would John Locke wear a flowing black chiffon gown to represent his inner smoke monster while swaying before a wind machine? Would members of the Dharma Initiative enter on stage right, clicking their fingers à la Westside Story? So many endless possibilities!
