It’s been almost 20 years since Lost first premiered, and the hit show from ABC is still regarded as one of the most iconic TV series of its time. Even though it became somewhat convoluted in the later seasons, most fans stuck with the show to see the fate of the Oceanic 815 passengers. And the creators gave them just that as they ended Lost on their own terms after six seasons. But is a seventh season still possible?
The obvious answer is no since Season 6 was supposedly the final season of Lost. Yet, considering the show’s popularity, you may think that a surprise renewal, spin-off, or reboot is on the table. So, is it? Find out as we tackle everything to know about Lost: Season 7.
When Is Lost: Season 7 Coming Out?
Unfortunately, Lost: Season 7 has no official release date because the series is over. Season 6 concluded the show’s story, and the showrunners plan to keep it that way.
Showrunner Carlton Cuse mentioned in an interview with DigitalSpy that he and fellow showrunner Damon Lindelof have told the story they want to tell. However, both showrunners would still welcome a Lost revival, but it would have to feature new executive producers since they have no plans to return to the franchise.
So, Lost: Season 7 may never become a reality unless ABC decides to revive the series. And as of writing, there’s no news that ABC plans to do so.
What Could Lost: Season 7 be About?
If it were to be made, it’s unclear what Lost: Season 7’s plot will be about. Considering how Season 6 ended, the story seems to have wrapped up definitively. With our characters (spoilers ahead) going into the afterlife together in the finale, the writers will have to come up with a way to bring them back or tell a story before their supposed deaths for Season 7.
However, the former showrunners may not support that idea. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lindelof said: “As it relates to Lost, which was so heavily serialized, I do think it’s somewhat of a betrayal to go back in and say there’s more story to tell that I just came up with now, especially when we had ample time to end it on our own terms.”
With this, there might not be any story left to tell for Lost: Season 7, which means ABC might have to reboot the series.
Lost: Season 7 Cast
Because the show is over and the characters are frankly dead, it’s unlikely that the cast will return for a seventh season. So, if ABC does create a new season, Lost: Season 7 will most likely have new characters played by different actors.
Even Lindelof had concerns regarding the cast returning for Season 7. The showrunner mentioned in the same interview earlier: “Those characters not only died, but we showed you their experience post-death. Any new take on Lost will probably have to feature new characters, as it should.”
Where To Watch Lost in the US
Currently, Lost: Season 7 isn’t available anywhere in the US. The series ended in 2010, so no one will likely be able to watch Lost: Season 7. Nonetheless, if a reboot or spin-off did happen, you can expect it to air on ABC network.
Meanwhile, you can stream every season of Lost on Hulu or purchase the series as a download on Amazon Prime Video, Microsoft Store, Apple TV, Vudu, and Google Play.
Where To Watch Lost in the UK
Like the US, Lost: Season 7 isn’t available for UK viewers as the show finished in Season 6. All we can do is hope for a surprise renewal or reboot to revive the franchise. If Lost does return for another season, it will likely air on Sky network in the UK.
While waiting, UK viewers can binge-watch all episodes of Lost on Disney+ or buy them on Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Google Play, Rakuten TV, and Sky Store.
How Many Episodes Could Lost: Season 7 Have?
With the show concluded, Lost: Season 7 will not be made and thus will not have any episodes. Even if it was produced, there’s no telling how many episodes it will have, considering that the original series’ episode count fluctuated throughout its six seasons with 25, 24, 23, 14, 17, and 18 episodes, respectively.
Lost: Season 7 Trailer
As you can tell, there’s no official trailer for Lost: Season 7. It’s been nearly 14 years since the show aired the final episode, so it’s unlikely we’ll get anything new from the franchise any time soon. Nonetheless, we’ll let you know through this article if there are any announcements.
