Lost in Space Series Coming to Netflix

Netflix announced that the service ordered the first season of 10-episode, one-hour sci-fi drama, Lost in Space. They ordered it from Legendary TV based on the 1960's sci-fi from Irwin Allen. The series will be reimagined and will feature writers, Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (Dracula Untold, Last Witch Hunter). Zack Estrin (Prison Break) will be the showrunner.

"The show centers around the Robinson family, who is forced to come together in a time of crisis. Stranded light years from their intended destination, they find themselves battling a strange new alien environment and also their own personal demons. Equal parts family drama and sci-fi adventure, it is a survival story for the ages."

Cindy Holland, Netflix Vice President of Original Content said, "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".

More information including the cast will be released in the future. The series will premiere on Netflix in 2018.
