The Robinsons may be lost in space, but they have found a home on Netflix.
The streaming network announced Monday that “Lost in Space” will return for a second season. The first eleven-episode season hit the service on April 13, earning rave reviews from fans.
Produced by Legendary Television, the series is a reimagining of the 1960s classic. “Lost in Space” is set thirty years into a future where space colonization is the new reality. The Robinson family is one such group of colonists, setting out to make a new life for themselves on a new planet. Things go wrong, though, when they are thrown off course and wind up far away from their intended home.
The show stars Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Maxwell Jenkins, Mina Sundwall, Taylor Russell, Ignacio Serricchio and Parker Posey. Zack Estrin, Kevin Burns, Jon Jashni, Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless serve as executive producers.
The original series ran from 1965-1968. During its run, it earned two Emmy nominations, for visual effects and cinematography. The show starred Guy Williams and June Lockhart as the parents of the doomed family. It was set far into the future: 1997.
