Just when we thought it was safe to mention Lost without somebody grabbing you by the throat and screaming "whyyyyyyyyyyy?", it seems there could be more on the way. Well, potentially.

The series, which followed a group of survivors who crash landed on a desert island, was initially created by JJ Abrams, Damon Lindelof and Jeffrey Lieber, while Lindelof and Carlton Cuse served as showrunners and head writers. Speaking recently to CinemaBlend, Lindelof said, Carlton and I always said that we welcome any future crack at the [intellectual property]. Lost was bigger than us and bigger than JJ.

"There's something really exciting about the fact that George Lucas sold the Star Wars universe and now the people who grew up watching it are making it. Maybe the same thing could be said for Lost."

Lindelof also said as much in an interview with EW back in 2014, "I think there will be more Lost. But I don't think it's gonna come from us. My guess is that some other creative team will come in and take their creative spin on this content, which is really exciting."

It was undoubtedly one of the most successful TV shows of the noughties, however it had one of the most dissatisfying and bizarre endings that still frustrates people to this day. (Were they dead all along? What was with the black smoke?! Why was there a polar bear?! And breathe.)

Perhaps some talented fan out there is already penning scripts for a spin-off; a sitcom about the black smoke and his wily bunch of misfit mates per chance? The Dharma Initiative take on S.H.I.E.L.D? Get brainstorming fellow fans.
