Netflix has renewed Lost In Space for its second season on the streaming service. The first season of the rebooted Lost In Space series arrived on Netflix a month or so ago, and apparently, its premiere-date viewership figures were Netflix’s third-best of the past year (only Stranger Things season 2 and the movie Bright got more viewings on their first day, according to Nielsen data).
It shouldn’t come as any surprise, then, that Lost In Space season 2 is officially on its way. The show stars Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Maxwell Jenkins, Mina Sundwall, Taylor Russell, Ignacio Serricchio and Parker Posey, and we’d expect all of those talented actors to return to their roles for the new season. We’d also expect showrunner Zack Estrin to return at the helm, although that hasn’t formally been announced as of yet.
Lost In Space, if you’re unfamiliar, is a rebooted version of Irwin Allen’s classic sci-fi series from the sixties (which was also rebooted into a Matt LeBlanc film in the nineties). The series follows the Robinson family, who end up stranded on a strange planet in the year 2048.
Netflix threw a big budget at Lost In Space, and the result was a glossy sci-fi that audiences flocked towards. Netflix will be hoping that they stick around to watch season 2.
More as we hear it.
