The CW Eyes Drama Series Based on ‘The Lost Boys’

The Overall Story, Pitched for Seven Seasons, Will Span 70 Years

The CW has landed “The Lost Boys,” a series adaptation of the 1987 Warner Bros vampire movie of the same name, from “Veronica Mars” and “iZombie” creator Rob Thomas, Gulfstream TV and Warner Bros Television. The original film followed two brothers, played by Jason Patric and Corey Haim, who face off against a gang of vampires, led by Kiefer Sutherland, in Santa Carla, California.

Anthology in format, “The Lost Boys” will look at vampires through a new lens, asking the question: what does it really mean to be immortal? The series will tell a story spanning 70 years, each decade a new season. Each season, the humans, the setting, the antagonist and the story all change — only the vampires, our Lost Boys, remain the same. The first season will be set in San Francisco during 1967 — the Summer of Love.

News of this potential “The Lost Boys” series comes on the heels of The CW announcing that veteran “The Vampire Diaries” will be concluding next season.
