Lost in Space is making a return to television this April. Netflix has released this morning an announcement teaser for the sci fi reboot.
A 10 episode first season run will arrive on the streaming service Friday, April 13. Starring Toby Stevens, Molly Parker, Ignacio Serricchio, Taylor Russell, Maxwell Jenkins, Mina Sundwall and Parker Posey with Zack Estrin onboard as Showrunner.
A synopsis was also released about the reboot.
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 (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.
The original Lost in Space television series was created by Irwin Allen and ran on CBS from 1965 to 1968 with 83 episodes under it’s belt. In 1998, Lost in Space made it’s way to theaters from New Line Cinema. Starring William Hurt, Gary Oldman, Mimi Rogers, Matt LeBlanc and Heather Graham, earning $136.2 million dollars in the box office with a $80 million dollar budget .
