“Danger Will Robinson!” The good news is, that the Netflix reboot of ‘Lost In Space’ will get a third season. But the bad news is, that it will be their final. But that apparently was the plan all-along, so the news isn’t that bad after all. I still watch the campy original show, when I can find it streaming somewhere. And I think Netflix did a great job re-introducing us to the Robinsons. So it’ll be a sad farewell. But I’m glad they’ll have the time to end this new saga properly. Maybe they’ll even make it to Alpha Centauri in this rendition. We’ll just have to wait and see.
According to showrunner Zack Estrin;
“From the beginning, we’ve always viewed this particular story of The Robinsons as a trilogy,” said Estrin. “A three part epic family adventure with a clear beginning, middle and end. It’s also worth noting that, with what these characters go through just trying to survive each episode — if anyone deserves to catch their breath before their next mission — it’s Will, Penny, Judy, Maureen, John, Don West, Dr. Smith… and The Robot. And, of course, Debbie the Chicken. So while this chapter of Lost In Space is coming to a rousing conclusion, I’m excited about continuing to explore new stories with my friends at Netflix, and for all of the incredible possibilities that lie ahead.”
