That film, directed by Joel Schumacher and starring Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz and the Coreys (Haim and Feldman), dealt with a pair of Arizona brothers who unexpectedly go up against a local gang of vampires. The intent of the series, being written and produced by iZombie's Rob Thomas, is to thoroughly examine the notion of immortality. Whereas previous entries in this horror subgenre (Angel, Forever Knight, Being Human, etc.) have done so via flashbacks, The Lost Boys promises to take a different approach. Describes Deadline, “This version is being envisioned as a seven-season arc. It will tell a story spanning 70 years, each season chronicling a decade. Season one will be set in San Francisco during the Summer Of Love, 1967. Each season, the humans, the setting, the antagonist and the story all change — only the vampires, our Lost Boys, like the Peter Pan characters who never grow up, remain the same.”
If that indeed is the approach being taken, it means that should the show go seven seasons, it will bring the story into the year 2037, which will result in a fairly unique setting for a vampire story.
