It's 2058 and the Earth is two decades from total ecological meltdown. The Robinson family - professors John and Maureen, youthful biologist Judy, pint-sized computer whiz Will and bratty adolescent Penny are headed for Alpha Prime, the habitable but distant planet whose colonization is humanity's last best hope. But their ship has been sabotaged by the villainous Dr. Smith and everyone winds up lost in the bio-mechanical spider-infested back forty of the universe.
Netflix announced today that Lost in Space has been renewed for a third and final season. The news, which arrives less than three months after the sci-fi drama's sophomore run, was accompanied by a message to fans from showrunner Zack Estrin. In the statement, Estrin confirmed that the series had been envisioned as a trilogy from the beginning.
A re-imagining of the 1960s series of the same name, Lost in Space follows a future where Planet Earth is in crisis, and the Robinson family journeys to space with hopes of writing a new chapter in human history. But when their spacecraft crashes on a mysterious frozen planet, the family faces unknown dangers as they fight for their lives to escape.
Look for Season 3 of Lost in Space in 2021.
