Talks surrounding a series adaptation of The Lost Boys have been circulating since 2016, when The CW passed on developing a series from writer Rob Thomas. However, we can now confirm that the series is edging forward with a pilot episode finally being commissioned.
Courtesy of Deadline, we’ve learned that Heather Mitchell’s take on the adaptation has got The CW excited, so we assume this will not adapt the original script from Thomas.
We have the official synopsis for The CW’s take on the iconic 1987 vampire horror-comedy right here:
“Welcome to sunny seaside Santa Carla, home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat…and a secret underworld of vampires. After the sudden death of their father, two brothers move to Santa Carla with their mother, who hopes to start anew in the town where she grew up. But the brothers find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s eternally beautiful and youthful undead.”
We’re excited to see what The CW have to offer, because a deeper look into the world of The Lost Boys cannot sound anything less than great. More as it comes!
