Vampire TV shows are nothing new. But, if Rob Thomas has his way, he’s going to do something very new with The Lost Boys. The CW just revealed it has acquired a show based on the hit 1987 film that’ll explore what it means to be immortal.
According to Deadline, Thomas (who did Veronica Mars and iZombie) has a vision for the show that spans seven seasons. Each season would be set in a different decade with everything, except the Lost Boys characters, completely changed. They’re immortal vampires, after all. The network sees it as a replacement to the massive hit The Vampire Diaries, which will be ending soon.
