The Lost Boys is coming to television and there are a few important changes that fans of the vampire-cult classic will see. The original movie starred Jason Patric and Corey Haim as Michael and Sam Emerson, Keifer Sutherland as David Powers and Jamie Gertz as Star who is caught in a triangle with Michael and David.
Jamison Newlander and Corey Feldman play the Frog brothers, Alan and Edgar Frog. The pair are vampire hunters in training and though not much is known about the upcoming CW series including the cast, it has been leaked that the Frog brothers will be replaced with sisters. Collider’s ‘The Witching Hour’ was first to break the news citing sources close to the project.
Reports also say iZombie’s Rob Thomas is creating the pilot that will hopefully be picked up for a full order.
Other changes haven’t been released but there’s no doubt the series is going to switch things up in order to keep viewers tuned in.
With the success of the CW’s Riverdale and the teen draw for supernatural series such as Sabrina The Teenage Witch, The Vampire Diaries, and The Originals, fans are hopeful that this is going to be something that takes off and see great ratings.
Though it is still too early to understand exactly how the series would play out, fans seem to be excited about the Frog brothers becoming sisters. Just how much girl power will be in The Lost Boys is anyone’s guess.
With The Vampire Diaries and The Originals off the air, CW certainly has the experience and expertise to bring fans a new vampire hit.

The project is in the early development stages and there is no word when production will start or when the pilot will air. Though many of the original cast members including Corey Feldman are active on social media platforms, none have discussed the upcoming project.
At this point, neither Corey Feldman or Jamison Newlander have shared their opinions about the Frog brothers becoming sisters.
What do you think about the new pilot? Would you watch a series based on The Lost Boys?
