First Look At Netflix’s Lost in Space

Netflix just announced the launch date for Lost in Space, their modern take on the classic sci-fi adventure series. NASA astronauts had the privilege of seeing the pilot episode at the International Space Station, but the show will premiere across planet Earth on April 13, 2018. 

Lost in Space is a Netflix Original dramatic and modern reimagining of the classic 1960’s science fiction series. Set 30 years in the future, colonization in space is now a reality, and the Robinson family is among those tested and selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. But when the new colonists find themselves abruptly torn off course en route to their new home they must forge new alliances and work together to survive in a dangerous alien environment, light-years from their original destination.

Stranded along with the Robinsons are two outsiders who find themselves thrown together by circumstance and a mutual knack for deception. The unsettlingly charismatic Dr. Smith (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 also stars Molly Parker, Toby Stephens, Max Jenkins, Taylor Russell and Mina Sundwall.
