THE LOST BOYS TV Series Gets A Pilot Order At The CW; First Plot Details Revealed

We first heard about The CW's plans to bring cult classic vampire movie The Lost Boys to the small screen back in 2016, and now the network has finally got things moving on the show. More past the jump...

"Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire."

After initially passing on a small-screen adaptation of '80s vampire comedy The Lost Boys back in 2016, it seems The CW has had a change of heart and has now ordered the show to pilot.

Original writer Rob Thomas is caught up with the Hulu Veronica Mars revival, but a new pitch by Heather Mitchell (Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy) is said to have gone over very well with the network brass. Thomas will remain on board as EP.

From the sounds of the official logline, this new take will stick very close to the premise of the movie.


“After the sudden death of their father, two brothers move to Santa Carla with their mother, who hopes to start anew in the town where she grew up. But the brothers find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s eternally beautiful and youthful undead.”

In addition to The Lost Boys, pilots were ordered for Riverdale spin-off Katy Keene, and an untitled Nancy Drew series.
