We already have shows that inherited Lost's cultural mantle -- Game of Thrones and The Good Place. "Lost itself cannot be replicated," says Kate Gardner, reacting to new ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke saying she'd be interested in a Lost reboot. Gardner adds: "I say this as a diehard fan of the show. Lost inspired a lifelong interest in television and media analysis, and I once wrote a three-page defense of the final two seasons for a professor who most certainly did not assign it. However, as much as I adored Lost, it was lightning in a bottle. You can’t recreate the hype around Lost, at least not around a reboot of the series. That phenomenon usually occurs around a new show that captures the zeitgeist in a fresh, unique way."
