“From the beginning, we’ve always viewed this particular story of The Robinsons as a trilogy,” Estrin said. “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.”
The Lost in Space series is a reboot of the classic 1960’s science fiction series of the same name. The plot is set 30 years into the future, colonization in space is now a reality, and the Robinson family is among those selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. However, when the new colonists find themselves abruptly torn off course to their new home, they must forge new alliances and work together with others to survive in a dangerous alien environment, lightyears from their intended destination.
The series stars Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Maxwell Jenkins, Mina Sundwall, Taylor Russell, Ignacio Serricchio, and Parker Posey. Estrin executive producers alongside Kevin Burns, John Jashni, Matt Sazama, and Burk Sharpless.
“We are so thrilled to share more adventures of The Robinson Family and see their journey through to what is sure to be an epic finale,” said Ted Biaselli, director of the original series at Netflix. “We’re especially thankful to Zack Estrin, Matt Sazama, Burk Sharpless, Kevin Burns and Jon Jashni for helming ‘Lost in Space,’ which has brought viewers a premium action-packed and visually spectacular series that the whole family can enjoy together, and we can’t wait for our family audiences to see where season 3 will lead!”
