In a lockdown phase such as this one, not having watched Lost in Space on Netflix might just be the gravest mistake you’ve ever done. Let this be a sign that you have to watch it now––like, right now. You can thank us later.
The sci-fi series Lost in Space is the reimagination of the 1965 sci-fi series of the same name. Premiering solely on the age of black and white, America loved it. The 1965 pioneer was from the great Irwin Allen and Netflix’s Lost in Space showrunner Zack Estrin has helped in updating and reimagining one of the best sci-fi shows in the streaming platform as of today.
Netflix has confirmed in a statement that the series has been renewed for its third and unfortunately its final season.
“From the beginning, we’ve always viewed this particular story of the Robinsons as a trilogy. A three part epic family adventure with a clear beginning, middle and end,” said Estrin in the statement.
I guess the series didn’t really take into account that Will Robinson, played by Maxwell Jenkins, was growing up so fast––too fast in fact that the series might be closing-in on paying double for the CGI budget.
To go along with the great news of another season, the streaming giant has also announced that Estrin has signed a multi-year deal with the company to produce more shows exclusively for the platform! Hoorah!
“So while this chapter of ‘Lost in Space’ is coming to a rousing conclusion,” Estrin said in the statement, “I’m excited about continuing to explore new stories with my friends at Netflix, and for all of the incredible possibilities that lie ahead.”
The Lost in Space cast boasts of Molly Parker (Maureen Robinson), Toby Stephens (John Robinson), Maxwell Jenkins (Will Robinson), Taylor Russell (Judy Robinson) Mina Sundwall (Penny Robinson), Ignacio Serricchio (Don West) and Parker Posey as Dr. Smith.
Watch out for the third season in 2021! ‘Til then, maybe you can go binge-watch yourself some past seasons of Lost in Space!
