The CW is preparing for life after The Vampire Diaries: The network is developing a series adaptation of the vamp-themed 1987 horror-comedy The Lost Boys, shepherded by Veronica Mars and iZombie creator Rob Thomas.
According to Deadline, the project explores what it really means to be immortal, with each potential season chronicling a decade of the 70-year-old saga. The human characters, the setting and the main antagonist will change with each season, per Deadline. Only the undead Lost Boys will remain the same.
The Joel Schumacher film starred Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Corey Haim and Corey Feldman.
