CW is Developing ‘The Lost Boys’ TV Series

CW is eyeing a replacement for The Vampire Diaries as it enters the farewell season. It looks like they found a suitable replacement that will suck just as bad. Pun intended.

Deadline is reporting that CW has landed The Lost Boys, a series adaptation of the iconic 1987 Warner Bros horror comedy movie, from Veronica Mars and iZombie creator Rob Thomas, Gulfstream TV and Warner Bros Television.

This coming after plans for the Friday the 13th TV series fell through (but may not be dead.) CW does still have Arrow, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and iZombie. All DC properties.

Much like American Horror Story, The Lost Boys TV series is said to have a new set of characters each season. Season 1 will take place in San Francisco during  1967 and will continue for 70 years.  Each season will tell a new chapter of the Lost Boys’ story in a different decade. No word yet on when the series will debut as it is currently in development.
