News The CW’s ‘The Lost Boys’ TV Series Rolled to the Next Development Cycle Published 2 years ago on February 6, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Are you ready for The Lost Boys TV series? Well, if you are, we think you should continue reading. Dark Universe found out late last year that The CW scored the rights to a series adaptation of Joel Schumacher’s 1987 vampire classic The Lost Boys, and here’s an update on the status of CW’s show. We just got word via THR that “The Lost Boys” has been rolled into the next development cycle, and six pilot pickups are already in place. The series won’t be worked on this season, but the plan is to begin developing the adaptation next season. How exciting is that? “Envisioned for a seven-season, anthology-style run, the series will tell a story spanning 70 years, each season chronicling a decade. Season 1 will be set in San Francisco during the Summer of Love, 1967. Each season, the humans, the setting, the antagonist and the story all change — only the vampires, our Lost Boys, who like the Peter Pan characters never grow up, remain the same.” The first season of The Lost Boys, which hails from Warner Bros. Television and Rob Thomas (“iZombie”), will be set in San Francisco during 1967’s so-called Summer of Love. Thomas will write the script and executive produce via his Spondoolie Productions banner, alongside Danielle Stokdyk, Dan Etheridge, Juliana Janes, Mike Karz and Bill Bindley.
