It left show watchers gripped with its several shocking twists and cliffhangers as survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 attempted to survive on a mysterious island.

And now hit drama Lost could be set for a return nine years after it aired its final episode in 2010.

Talking at a Television Critics Association panel on Tuesday, ABC channel’s boss, Karey Burke, admitted she dreams of a comeback and would be very ‘interested’ in a reboot.

Asked if Lost would ever return, the programming chief said: ‘I would like that very much – that is a reboot I would be interested in seeing.’

However, despite teasing a comeback, Karey later clarified that there were no current plans put in place for a reboot and she hasn’t even spoke to one of Lost’s writers, J.J. Abrams.

Talking to the The Hollywood Reporter, she added: ‘It’s literally at this point just what I dream about when I go to bed at night.

‘But I do often get asked the question what show would I reboot and often my answer is Lost — sometimes Alias. Nothing to report yet. Maybe ever. But it would be a fun thing to have a conversation about.’

And fans might also be disappointed to learn that Lost’s fellow co-creators, Carlton Cuse, and Damon Lindelof, have previously revealed they have no intentions of rebooting the popular drama.

In 2017, Carlton was reported to have said: ‘Damon and I are pretty adamant about the fact that we don’t have any intentions of rebooting Lost. I know that there are a lot of shows that have been rebooted lately, but we are not on that path.

‘I hope that when that happens, whoever is doing it, doesn’t take the characters from the original Lost and put them in the new one.

‘Because we worked so hard to end that show and to give [the survivors] some level of closure.’

While Lost actress Evangeline Lilly, who played one of the main characters, Kate Austen, also appeared to rule out any reboot.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly in 2018, The Hobbit star, 39, said: ‘There’s a rumour every year that they are going to reboot Lost.

‘The thing about reboots and remakes is that I don’t like them in general, period. I feel like it’s just tainting something that’s precious.

‘I’ve said I don’t want to do things in the past and I’ve done them – you know, never say never – but sitting where I am today, my assumption is no.’

Lost made its first debut in September 2004 and its sixth, and final, season aired in May 2010, with a total of 121 episodes.

The show follows the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815, who each had their own dark secret, as they attempt to survive on a mysterious deserted island in the middle of the ocean after their flight from Sydney to Los Angeles crashed.

However, it’s not just the characters who are hiding things, and the island has its own unknown mysteries too such as underground bunkers, a secret research project called Dharma Initiative and other violent survivors to fight off, terrifyingly known as ‘The Others’.

As well as having supernatural and science fiction elements, the show featured several romance storylines, especially fugitive Kate Austen (Evangeline Lilly) who found herself in a love triangle between dishy surgeon Jack Shephard (Matthew Fox) and handsome bad boy James ‘Sawyer’ Ford (Josh Holloway).
