Vampires have been good to The CW. The Vampire Diaries has been the network’s flagship drama, but it is ending after eight seasons. Not to worry. The CW has what could be the perfect successor in place.

The CW has landed The Lost Boys, a series adaptation of the iconic 1987 Warner Bros horror comedy movie, from Veronica Mars and iZombie creator Rob Thomas.

Thomas plans a seven-season, anthology-style run, telling a story that spans 70 years, each season chronicling a decade. Season 1 will be set in San Francisco during the Summer of Love, 1967. Each season, the humans, the setting and the story all change… only the vampires, the Lost Boys, who never grow up, remain the same.
