Netflix Is Planning A ‘Lost In Space’ Reboot Next Year, And It Sounds Awesome

Look out, Sci-Fi Fans! Netflix is cooking up a reboot of Lost In Space, slated for a ten episode release in 2018.

The series will be starring Tony Stephens, of the show Black Sails, as John Robinson. It will be co-starring Molly Parker from House of Cards as Maureen, as well as Falling Skies actress Taylor Russell as Judy.

Don West, played by Ignacio Serricchio from Bones, has been re-imagined as a rough flyboy with a side job as a smuggler of exotic goods. Parker Posey, known for her role in Woody Allen’s Café Society, will be playing Dr. Smith in this 2018 remake.

The 2018 Lost in Space reboot is being produced by Legendary Television, and will be written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, known for their movies Dracula Untold and Last Witch Hunter.

According to sources, this will stick closer to Irwin Allen’s original source material, but with a more modern feel. Here’s what Netflix’s Cindy Holland said in a statement:

“The original series so deftly captured both drama and comedy, and that made it very appealing to a broad audience,” “The current creative team’s reimagining of the series for Netflix is sure to appeal to both fans who fondly remember the original and to create a new generation of enthusiasts around the world.

What Do you think? Will this be a hit or miss for Netflix in 2018?

  1. Nice, this is definitely news for me, did not know they were planning a reboot. Netflix has zondag been doing a great job with their Netflix Originals, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that this might be a good series. Looking forward to it 😀

  2. This could be fun but it really depends how they adapt this story and deliver on it. Execution is going to be fairly critical. Given how much nostalgia remains for the original if this isn’t strongly done people will just stick to what they know. That said, if its even reasonable it might appeal ot a newer generation that haven’t watched the original.
