Evangeline Lilly is crushing the hearts of “Lost” fans.
The actress chatted with SiriusXM about the possibility of a reboot of the hit series and shut down any hope of a return.
“My honest answer is I hope not,” she said. “I really am that person who felt like we could have left well enough alone with a lot of these franchises, and I am die-hard fan of the original ‘Star Wars’ movies, you know, and sometimes I think you can devalue the original content. I think that can happen, and I would hate to see that happen with ‘Lost’.
She added, “I read a quote recently that said, ‘I’ve never done an adaptation because the book is good enough as it is’.”
“Lost”‘s showrunner Damon Lindelof also opened up about bringing “Lost” back in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in 2017, “Those characters not only died, but we showed you their experience post-death,” Lindelof explained. “Any new take on ‘Lost’ will probably have to feature new characters, as it should.”
He continued, “As it relates to ‘Lost’, which was so heavily serialized, I do think it’s somewhat of a betrayal to go back in and say there’s more story to tell that I just came up with now, especially when we had ample time to end it on our own terms.”
“Lost” signed off in 2010 after six seasons.
