Teen Wolf Star To Headline The Lost Boys TV Show, Twilight Helmer To Direct

Production is now starting to heat up on The Lost Boys TV show and according to Deadline, a Teen Wolf star will be headlining the series.

The Lost Boys

It’s been almost three years now since we last heard about the proposed Lost Boys TV series, but it seems that the planned reboot will indeed be materializing, and on The CW no less.

A few weeks ago, the network officially committed to a pilot episode of The Lost Boys, after turning down the opportunity to go ahead with it back in 2016. And with everyone’s favorite teenage vampires about to have their time in the sun again, the casting process has begun and from what we understand, a few of the roles have already been filled.

According to Deadline, former Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey and Kingdom alum Kiele Sanchez will take on two of the three main characters, while Medalion Rahimi (Still Star-Crossed) and Dakota Shapiro (Valley of the Boom) will also have major roles in the show. Furthermore, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke will be getting behind the camera for the pilot and working off a script from scribe Heather Mitchell (Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy), whose draft apparently got “everyone excited” and eager to pump new blood into the long-dormant project.


As for who all these individuals are playing, well, Posey will be taking on the role of Michael while Sanchez is set to portray Lucy, with Deadline describing the show as follows:

The story is set in sunny seaside Santa Carla, home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat…and a secret underworld of vampires. After the sudden death of their father, brothers Michael (Posey) and Sam Emerson move to Santa Carla with their mother, Lucy (Sanchez), who hopes to start anew in the town where she grew up. But the brothers soon find themselves being drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s eternally beautiful and youthful undead…

In regards to Rahimi and Shapiro, we understand that the former will play Stella, “a version of the Star character played by Jami Gertz originally,” while the latter will play David, portrayed by Kiefer Sutherland in the 1987 film.

Fans will know that it’s been a long time coming for the project, but it’s great to see that things are finally starting to coalesce and if nothing else, this adaptation proves that The Lost Boys is still very much a part of the horror scene.
