The-Lost-Boys-1987-still

The Vampire Dairies is drawing to a close on The CW so they are looking for something to fill the blood sucking gap. Turns out they are going back to the 80s as the plan is to make a TV show based on The Lost Boys.

Veronica Mars and iZombie creator Rob Thomas is working on the show with Gulfstream TV and Warner Bros Television.

Deadline had the news that the series re-imagines the cult Joel Schumacher film, which starred Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Corey Haim and Corey Feldman.

Now before you get all antsy and shouting “why can’t they do something new?” just take a look at what the plan is as it sounds like it could be quite interesting.

Envisioned for a seven-season, anthology-style run, the series will tell a story spanning 70 years, each season chronicling a decade. Season 1 will be set in San Francisco during the Summer of Love, 1967. Each season, the humans, the setting, the antagonist and the story all change — only the vampires, our Lost Boys, who like the Peter Pan characters never grow up, remain the same.

The project, which will explore what it really means to be immortal, is executive produced by Thomas via Spondoolie Productions, his frequent collaborators Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge as well as Gulfstream principals Mike Karz and Bill Bindley.

I really like the sound of that. What are your thoughts on the show?

Get ready for Michael to be said a lot more.
