Lost… Again!? ABC considering reboot!

Cue the polar bears! Shave Locke’s head! Pick out a numerical sequence!

ABC has had moderate to mega success with their reboots thus far – in particular, the controversial but high-hitting “Roseanne” (now “The Connors”) – so no surprise that they’re tinkering with bringing back some of their other legendary brands.

In addition to “Designing Women” and “New York Undercover” reboots, the alphabet net is considering going back to the island. Yep, that island – the one with the numbers, the polar bears and ‘freckles’.

No need to send a pair of clippers to Terry O’Quinn’s house just yet though, if a “Lost” reboot happens it won’t be for quite a while.

At the TCAs, ABC Prez Karey Burke confirmed interest in resurrecting the one-time ratings juggernaut.

“It is literally at this point just what I dream about when I go to bed at night,” Burke said. “I have not spoken to Carlton [Cuse] or J.J. [Abrams] or ABC Studios about it.”

Showrunners Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof have [sensibly] opted not to get involved in any “Lost” reboot, and they likely won’t want anywhere near a new version, but the duo are open to others giving a reboot a stab.

Burke said she’s not working on anything yet but her comments suggest she sure hopes to be in the future.

“I do often get the question what show would I reboot and often my answer is Lost, sometimes Alias,” Burke said. “Nothing to report yet, maybe ever but it would be a fun thing to have a conversation about.”

Let’s also make sure the new showrunners have a clearer idea of where they’d like the show to go – so they don’t splice in a cop-out ending into their series finale. Sorry.

Fun casting for IG-88 in The Mandalorian

The upcoming live-action “Star Wars” series set to premiere on Disney Plus





“Thor Ragnarok” helmer Taika Waititi recently shot an episode of Disney Plus’s “The Mandalorian” – the live-action “Star Wars” TV series that will feature, among others, fan-fave Boba Fett – and now it’s being revealed he’s also playing a character in it.

Showrunner and executive producer Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”) has posted a behind-the-scenes pic on Instagram of the beloved filmmaker recording his voice for the part of bounty hunter IG-88. The droid character is best known for his appearance in “The Empire Strikes Back” but he didn’t speak in his brief moments on screen.

Waititi, you may recall, also voiced a part in “Thor Ragnarok” – that of amiable Kiwi rock-guy Korg.

“The Mandalorian” is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

Executive producers Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb also confirmed the end of the long-running CW drama.

“Firstly, we would like to thank all the people who have been involved with the show both in front of and behind the camera,” the duo wrote in a statement published by THR. “For us it has been an experience of a lifetime.”

“The support we have had from both Warner Bros Television and The CW has been incredible,” Singer and Dabb continued. “We’d like to give special thanks to Jensen, Jared and Misha for making this journey so special. It is now most important to us to give these characters that we love the sendoff they deserve.”

“Supernatural”, which first aired on The WB in 2005, is the long-running sci-fi/genre series in American broadcast television history.

The CW has attempted to launch a couple of “Supernatural” spin-offs over the years but CW president Mark Pedowitz has since said he’s given up on that idea, convinced the spin-offs never came together because they’re lacking the magical ingredient : Ackles and Padalecki.

The fifteenth episode of the series airs later this year.

The CW are now looking to a wave of new shows to help fill the void left by “Supernatural” and “Jane the Virgin”, which is also concluding, with punters sugegsting the new “Lost Boys” TV series, a “Nancy Drew” reboot and “Batwoman” starring Ruby Rose will be the net’s next-big-things.

Get excited! The Conners back for Season 2!

John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf and the rest of the cast carve out deals





ABC has announced today that they’ve commissioned a second season of “The Conners”.

Ranking as television’s No. 1 new comedy this season in Total Viewers (9.5 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.2/10), the “Roseanne” spin-off led Tuesday’s 8:00 p.m. half-hour in Adults 18-49 by 16% over its nearest competitor. During its first season, “The Conners” improved its time period by 33% in Total Viewers and by 22% in Adults 18-49, posting 5-year highs for ABC in the half-hour.

In “The Conners,” this iconic family grapples with parenthood, divorce, dating, aging and financial pressures in working-class America. Through it all – the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails. The spinoff has also received critical acclaim with The Daily Beast calling it “warm, hilarious and fun,” and The New York Times declaring the new sitcom “special, deserving of a prime-time slot on television every week.”

The series stars John Goodman as Dan Conner, Laurie Metcalf as Jackie Harris, Sara Gilbert as Darlene Conner, Lecy Goranson as Becky Conner-Healy and Ames McNamara as Mark Conner-Healy. Additional cast to be announced at a later date.
