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 had to say:
“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.”
