'Lost' writer expects to see show return in the future

US show ended in 2010 after six seasons

Lost writer Carlton Cuse has said that he expects the hit TV show to return at some point in the future.

Cuse, who worked on 39 of the show's 121 episodes, has revealed that he does not believe the "valuable" show has yet run its course for makers ABC and that he expects it may be rebooted without his involvement.

"I think it's likely that at some point, ABC will want to reboot Lost because it's a valuable franchise," he Entertainment Weekly. "I do not begrudge ABC the opportunity to do something more with the franchise. But we told the story we wanted to tell, and I think there's kind of a wonderful sense of closure for us."

However, Cuse said that the writers made no plans for any future episodes when ending the show in 2010. "We so definitively had decided that this was the end of our journey with the Lost franchise. "[The series finale is] called 'The End' for that reason. It is the end of the story that we wanted to tell and we had no plans to go back and revisit it."

Lost ended in 2010 and starred Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lily, Dominic Monaghan and Josh Holloway among others.
