Netflix has released the first trailer and synopsis for its upcoming Lost in Space series, available for streaming starting on April 13.
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.
The original Lost in Space premiered in the 1960’s and has since become a cult classic. A film adaptation – starring William Hurt and Gary Oldman – came out in 1998.
While there wasn’t too much in the trailer to make a call either way, a remake of the sci-fi series is certainly overdo. We’ll see what Netflix has up its sleeve when the show premieres in a few months.
The series also stars Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Max Jenkins, Mina Sundwall and Taylor Russell.
