The Lost Boys TV series Rob Thomas

With the final season of The Vampire Diaries bringing the show to a close later this year, it looks as though The CW wants to follow it up with yet another vampire series. Deadline has reported that they'll be re-imagining Joel Schumacher's THE LOST BOYS for television. The adaptation comes from Veronica Mars and iZombie creator Rob Thomas and he has a rather interesting and ambitious plan for how the series will tell its story.

Envisioned for a seven-season run, Deadline says that the story of The Lost Boys will span 70 years with each season chronicling a decade. The first season will be set in San Francisco in 1967 but each proceeding season will have different human characters, different settings, different antagonists and different stories; only the Lost Boys themselves will remain the same throughout the series' run. Keeping the focus on the vampires this time around is a bit of a departure from Schumacher's original, which followed Jason Patric and Corey Haim as two brothers who moved into a new town and found themselves facing off with a vampire gang led by Kiefer Sutherland.

Why call it Lost Boys at all? The premise sounds interesting enough but it really has nothing to do with the original film other than it features some vampires. It sounds more along the lines with the Vampire Chronicles although going beyond modern times.

Huh. I love the original Lost Boys, and the sequels are definitely guilty pleasures. The premise itself is actually really cool, and introducing new [link] each season offers up a lot of narrative opportunities (not to mention cool eras to play with). That being said, I don't know much about Rob Thomas, but I've heard good things about Veronica Mars so... sure, why not!
