News Joel Schumacher’s ‘The Lost Boys’ to Become a TV Show on the CW Network Published 4 years ago on August 19, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet News just broke that the CW has scored the rights to a series adaptation of Joel Schumacher’s 1987 vampire classic The Lost Boys. Veronica Mars and iZombie creator Rob Thomas have based the whole thing on concepts from the original film, which will be spanning the story through 70 years. “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.” It sounds like a ballsy move to announce a seven season run so quickly, but a new TV series will open the gates to so many possibilities. I just hope we get to see some cameo appearances from the original Lost Boys cast, preferably Kiefer Sutherland and Corey Feldman. Warner Bros, Television, Gulfstream TV, and Thomas’s Spondoolie Productions will collaborate to bring us a new vampire series worth watching. The Lost Boys will be executive produced by Rob Thomas, Danielle Stokdyk, Dan Etheridge, Mike Karz, and Bill Bindley.
