Former Lost and current Bates Motel showrunner Carlton Cuse has revealed that sooner or later Lost will be rebooted as despite constant rumours of a Lost Season 7, they have “made no contingency for a sequel or a spinoff.”

Cuse told Entertainment Weekly, “We so definitively had decided that this was the end of our journey with the Lost franchise. [The series finale is] called ‘The End’ for that reason. It is the end of the story that we wanted to tell and we had no plans to go back and revisit it.

“I think it’s likely that at some point, ABC will want to reboot Lost because it’s a valuable franchise,” added Cuse.

“I do not begrudge ABC the opportunity to do something more with the franchise. But we told the story we wanted to tell, and I think there’s kind of a wonderful sense of closure for us.”

Bates Motel is currently airing on the Universal Channel in the UK. You can buy Bates Motel Season One on Blu-ray for £15 at Amazon.co.uk.
