“Danger, Will Robinson!” Those famous words were first uttered on television in the 1960’s with the original LOST IN SPACE series. Now Netflix is bringing an updated version of the show to your screens.
The new LOST IN SPACE will be set 30 years in the future, when space colonization is now a reality. The Robinson family has been selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. But something goes terribly wrong during their space flight and the new colonists find themselves thrown off course while on route to their new home.
Stranded on a new planet, they must work together to survive in a dangerous and alient environment, far away from their original destination. Netflix hints that “stranded along with the Robinsons are two outsiders who find themselves thrown together by circumstance and a mutual knack for deception”. Dr. Smith (played by Parker Posey) is a “master manipulator with an inscrutable end game. And the roguish, but inadvertently charming Don West (Ignacio Serricchio) is a highly-skilled, blue collar contractor, who had no intention of joining the colony, let alone crash landing on a lost planet.”
LOST IN SPACE will be streaming on Netflix as of April 13.
