"Danger, Will Robinson!" Lost in Space first look

Netflix has announced when it will be streaming Lost in Space. This is a 10-part reboot of the cult classic sci-fi series from Irwin Allen, featuring music from legendary Hollywood composer John Williams, which aired from 1965 to 1968 on CBS.

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.

After the middling movie reboot starring William Hurt, Gary Oldman, Matt LeBlanc, Heather Graham and Mimi Rogers from the late 1990s. This looks like another home run from the fine folks at Netflix! Lost in Space joins House of Cards, Stranger Things and Star Trek: Discovery as must-see television.

Get Lost in Space this April!
