The Lost Boys Series Heads To The CW

1

The CW is making some long-range plans with Veronica Mars and iZombie creator Rob Thomas. The network is developing a Lost Boys series, based on the 1987 feature film directed by Joel Schumacher. Unlike the film, however, the Lost Boys series is planned to span the better part of a century. The first season will take place in San Francisco in 1967 with the plan being for each subsequent season to be set in a different decade, culminating in a final seventh season that will, by the time it airs, theoretically feature the characters in a contemporary 2020s setting.

The Lost Boys series will be executive produced by Thomas through his Spondoolie Productions. Other executive producers include Dan Etheridge and Danielle Stokdyk as well as Gulfstream Television’s Bill Bindley and Mike Karz. Gulfstream’s Juliana Janes will oversee for Warner Bros. Television.

Plans for the Lost Boys series arrive just as The CW prepares to begin the final season of their hit vampire series The Vampire Diaries. The eighth season will premiere on the channel October 21 with the first of 16 final episodes.

The Lost Boys To Receive Sequel In New Comic Series From Vertigo

LOST-BOYS-1-OF-6-31caa

Vertigo Comics has announced a new Lost Boys comic series that will serve as a sequel to Joel Schumacher’s cult-favorite ’80s horror-comedy.

Hack/Slash creator and Grayson scribe Tim Seeley will write the series, with The Dark & the Bloody’s Scott Godlewski and Patricia Mulvihill on interior art duties, and Tony Moore (Shade) providing covers. The creative team is set to offer a sequel to the original film that delivers all the bloody, big hair fun of the 1987 classic.

“I saw ‘The Lost Boys’ at a formative time in my life, when a VHS, a VCR and a summer afternoon were a perfect escape into a crazy world of biker vampires with mullets and monster-fighting hippy grandpas,” Seeley told Variety. “‘The Lost Boys’ was one of my entry points into the horror genre, and I’ve been fascinated ever since. Getting the chance to write a sequel to the film, featuring the original characters, and getting to work with Scott, Patricia and Tony is truly a high point in my comic book-making career.”

Check out the official solicitation for Vertigo’s “Lost Boys” #1 below, along with some of Godlewski’s interior art from the first issue below:

The stakes are raised in this nostalgic and unstoppable sequel to the ’80s cult classic vampire film, The Lost Boys. Veteran horror writers Tim Seeley and Scott Godlewski deliver a gruesome and stylish return to the bloody boardwalks and big hair of 1987!

Santa Carla, California is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to “normal” after its last supernatural scuffle left the local coven’s head vampire dead and gave newcomers Michael and Sam Emerson a housewarming both violent and bizarre. Now the brothers must once again team up with militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog when a new gang of ruthless, stunning, life-sucking nightcrawlers known as the Blood Belles emerges from the aftermath to collect Michael’s love interest and their lost sister, Star.

Lost Boys #1 hits stands on October 12.
