LOST Co-Creator Damon Lindelof Set For TV Return, Ditches ‘Wackadoo Mythology’


LOST co-creator/showrunner Damon Lindelof is coming baaaaaaaaaaack to TV after navigating the feature worlds of Star Trek and Prometheus for the past two years. Just don’t expect him to create the next LOST, okay?

Lindelof is finalizing a three-year overall deal with Warner Bros. TV with a view to create his next show. But he has no plans to whip up the next LOST (he’s STILL explaining the old LOST) or dive deep into mythology waters.

Lindelof outlines his desire to create character-driven television with a fantastical edge:

“I think certainly film-wise, I’m spaced out, I think I’ve got the robot-spaceship future bug out of my system. I probably won’t be the guy who creates the next Mad Men or Breaking Bad, though I love both of these shows. What I love about television is character-based storytelling, and I want to continue to explore fantastical way of doing it where characters live in a world that is a little skewed.”

LOST showrunners: Walt Was Special Because He Was Special

But Lindelof says he has no interest in doing more shows with what he calls “wackadoo mythology”:

“I won’t be the one that would come up with the next Lost.”

Lindelof recently admitted that LOST would most likely return, but without him.
