I loved Lost, but a reboot??? NO.— Sharon Griffith (@Sharon_Grif) February 6, 2019
When you come up with an ORIGINAL concept with ORIGINAL plotlines, get back to me.
A straight-up fresh-start reboot of LOST is a bad idea. LOST, despite it's multitude of flaws and inconsistencies, had a very satisfying ending for its characters. Resolving The Island mysteries is where the writers fell short. 2/6— Keegz (@TS_Theory) February 6, 2019
The American supernatural and science fiction show, Lost, was originally aired on ABC from September 2004 to Mary 2010. The show followed the survivors of a commercial jet airliner flying between Sydney and Los Angeles after their plane crashes on a mysterious island somewhere in the South Pacific Ocean.
Lost's story was told in a heavily serialized manner. All the episodes featured a primary storyline set on the mysterious island, which was augmented by flashbacks or flashforward (final seasons) sequences that provided insight into the involved characters.
Lost TV show was created by Damon Lindelof, J. J. Abrams, and Jeffrey Lieber. Over the years, Lost has been considered the greatest television series of all time. The show even won numerous awards, including the Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series in 2005, Best American Import at the British Academy Television Awards in 2005, a Golden Globe in 2006, among others.
Apart from having a phenomenal viewership (the first season was viewed by an average of 16 million viewers per episode), the show won the hearts of several critics. Several experts stated that there will be nothing like Lost on television.
