Netflix’s Lost in Space reboot series began streaming this past Friday and while there hasn’t been an official green light given, there is already talk about a possible second season. In fact, co-creators Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama recently sat down with IndieWire and revealed that they’re already working on Season 2.
“We are working on scripts and hoping that, if we get a green light, we’re ready to go,” Sazama said. “We’ve had a lot of thoughts about it, and hopefully, if everyone watches it, we’ll get to see more adventures of the Robinsons, because we do have some crazy stuff planned out that we really hope we get to film.”
“Yeah, Season 2 is wild, so hopefully it can happen,” Sharpless adds. “There’s obviously a deep backstory of the robot and the causality of what caused this whole world to happen. And we’ve definitely figured that part out. We didn’t want this show to be a really mythology-heavy show, even though I love them.”
He continues: “We definitely have figured out some really fun stuff that I think, if we were so fortunate for the show to go more than one season, I think people would really enjoy and be interested in the science fiction world that we want to build.”
The Netflix original series stars Toby Stephens as John Robinson, Molly Parker as Maureen Robinson, Taylor Russell as Judy, Mina Sudwall as Penny, Dr. Smith played by Parker Posey, Don West is played by Ignacio Serricchio, and Max Jenkins as Will Robinson.
The series is produced by Legendary Television and written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. Zack Estrin serves as showrunner. The three are executive producers alongside Synthesis Entertainment’s Kevin Burns and Jon Jashni with Neil Marshall and Marc Helwig. The original series was created by Irwin Allen. Season one is now streaming on Netflix.
Lost in Space is a Netflix Original dramatic and modern reimagining of the classic 1960’s science fiction series. 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, lightyears from their original destination.
