Classic Vampire Flick ‘The Lost Boys’ Gets A Pilot Order At The CW

Beware. This new series definitely isn’t Peter Pan and Neverland. It’s been rumored for a while that vampire cult classic The Lost Boys was coming to TV. Now, it looks like the series has a home on one big network.

Landing A Pilot

For almost three years, the word around town was that the 1987 film The Lost Boys would be turned into a series. No networks announced an official pilot order, though. It had been said that the reboot would be a part of the new lineup on The CW, but the network had turned it down.

Now, The CW is backtracking. It was announced that the network greenlit a pilot episode for the series. From the series’ plot, it looks like the show will stay true to the original movie.

Back To Santa Clara

For the pilot episode, The CW shared a brief but interesting plot summary for the show. “Welcome to sunny seaside Santa Carla, home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat…and a secret underworld of vampires,” it said.

The summary continued: “After the sudden death of their father, two brothers move to Santa Carla with their mother, who hopes to start anew in the town where she grew up. But the brothers find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s eternally beautiful and youthful undead.”

Getting To Work

Screenwriter Rob Thomas was originally working on the series. However, when it was rejected by The CW, he moved on to working on Veronica Mars for Hulu. Instead, the new pitch of the show was created by producer and writer Heather Mitchell (Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy).

Though there’s no word on any more details like casting, the revival has employees at the network and the writing team excited to develop the series. Though there’s only a pilot episode currently, the hope, of course, is that The Lost Boys will be ordered for a full season. Only time will tell.
