Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless wrote the new version of the classic science fiction series, and Prison Break‘s Zack Estrin is the season one showrunner. Sazama, Sharpless, Estrin, Kevin Burns, Jon Jashni, Neil Marshall, and Marc Helwig are the executive producers.
Lost in Space will premiere on April 13, 2018.
The Plot: 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.
Lost in Space stars Toby Stephens as John Robinson and Molly Parker as Maureen Robinson, the family’s parental leaders who are struggling with their estranged relationship in the midst of trying to keep their family safe. As the Robinson kids, Taylor Russell is the strong-willed and confident Judy, Mina Sundwell is the quick-witted and definitive middle-child Penny, and Max Jenkins is the curious and sensitive Will Robinson, the youngest and most vulnerable of the clan, who forms an unlikely and inexplicable bond with a sentient robotic alien being.
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 played by Parker Posey is a master manipulator with an inscrutable end game. And the roguish, but inadvertently charming Don West, played by 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.
