Lost showrunner Carlton Cuse has claimed that given Disney owns the franchise, a new season of the show on a new spin is "inevitable".

Discussing the show ten years on from its premiere, Cuse likened it to CS Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia series and said the island could be revisited from a different perspective.

"Disney owns the franchise, it made them a lot of money, it's hard to imagine it will just sit there idly forever," he told ABC.

"Damon (Lindelof) and I told our story in that world and I assume someone will come along, hopefully having been inspired by our story, or our version of the story, and want to tell their own story.

"It's like the Narnia chronicles. There are seen books, they were all written by CS Lewis, but they all visit Narnia at different times and different configurations and different ways.

"Someone is going to come up with a way to tell another Lost story. I think it's inevitable. I don't know what it is or how it would work, but I can't imagine something else won't be done with the franchise."

His words will probably be met with a collective groan from viewers, many of whom felt Lost went on six seasons too long anyway.

Its finale, which saw all plane wreck survivors dead by the end, did not go down well with fans, with Lindelof describing the fallout as a "maddening hurricane of sh*t".
