2002 – The Lost World TV Series ends
On this day in dinosaurs, the final episode of series 3 of The Lost World television series aired, marking the end of the show’s run. As one of countless adaptations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s novel, the series chronicled the adventures of explorers finding a prehistoric plateau in the Amazon.
While some details of the proposed fourth and fifth series were revealed to fans, the show was cancelled after three seasons, leaving the way for countless further adaptations to be created in the future.

We also salute Director Joe Johnston today, who has played a role in many of cinema’s fantastic adventure films–most notably directing Jurassic Park III. We hope you didn’t take any eggs today, Joe!
