Get ready, TV … Damon Lindelof is going to be back soon.
Speaking out in a new interview with Deadline, the former “Lost” showrunner (and writer for the upcoming “Prometheus” and sequel to “Star Trek”) talked about a major new announcement — he has signed a new multi-year deal with Warner Bros. TV to develop some new projects:
“This [deal] is about me creating my next show … I probably won’t be the guy who creates the next Mad Men or Breaking Bad, though I love both of these shows. What I love about television is character-based storytelling, and I want to continue to explore fantastical way of doing it where characters live in a world that is a little skewed.”
Lindelof cautioned fans, though, by saying that he is also not out to create a show that is going to be similar to “Lost” in any way. (Can you really blame him considering how fans reacted to the ending?) With this information in mind, it’s really hard to say at this point just what Damon will come up with — but the earliest we could feasibly see a show from him back on the air is fall 2013 (and it may be later than that depending on if everything comes together the right way).
Are you happy to see Damon coming back?
