Netflix has released a new featurette for their upcoming reboot of the classic sci-fi adventure television series, Lost in Space. Meet the Robinson family as they blast off on an edge-of-your-seat adventure to establish a new colony in space, but find themselves suddenly pulled off course and crash landed on a lost planet. This first featurette provides an inside look into the family, the lost planet, and the adventures they embark on together. The cast and crew set up expectations for the series, which is a family adventure with spaceships, robots, and monsters… which sounds pretty cool, really.
Based on the 1965 science fiction series created by Irwin Allen that ran for three seasons / 83 episodes, the new Lost in Space is being written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless with Zack Estrin as the showrunner. The first season is 10 episodes. The new cast includes Toby Stephens as John Robinson, Molly Parker as Maureen Robinson, Ignacio Serricchio as Don West, Taylor Russell as Judy Robinson, Mina Sundwall as Penny Robinson, Maxwell Jenkins as Will Robinson, and Parker Poseyas Dr. Smith.
The property was turned into a feature film back in 1998 with an all-star cast of William Hurt, Mimi Rogers, Matt LeBlanc, Gary Oldman, Heather Graham, and Lacey Chabert.
Lost in Space premieres on April 13th on Netflix.
