Netflix reviving Lost in Space

Lost_In_SpaceDanger Will Robinson! Netflix is working on a new update of the classic 1960s Irwin Allen TV series Lost in Space.

The latest reboot is described as “an epic but grounded science fiction saga focusing on a young explorer family from earth lost in an alien universe and the challenges they face in staying together against seemingly insurmountable odds.” It is penned by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless with Neil Marshall expected to direct the pilot. The project is the brainchild of Kevin Burns of Synthesis Entertainment, who has been working on reviving interest in Irwin Allen’s material.

The series ran for 83 episodes in the 1960s, and was revived both as a feature film in 1998 and as a pilot in 2004, directed by John Woo, which didn’t go to series.  There was also a short-lived comic book version and an even-shorter lived cartoon incarnation.

One thought on “Netflix reviving Lost in Space

  1. Heaka cool, bitchin, feeling young and excited about evening TV for a change. With the break-up of the networks and the FCC busted and lousing control of broadcast, coupled with never allowing repeats to secondary broadcast stations I have not seen this Iconic 60’s SiFi Show since the original broadcast I actually found this on Hulu recently, if it only played back without crashing my streaming system. So special was Lost in Space it captures the Historic transition from black and white to colour TV Broadcast. I can remember then and a colour TV at the neighbour’s house. I can only hope they remake this series better with the drama of the original period or blow us away with a genuine scripted breakthroughs in Space exploration as far thinking as Irwin’s concept struck us back in those days. My elders thought the show was ridiculous nonsense and as absurd as the Dick Tracy wrist watch. I’m a old dude now, Blow me out of the water, Please.
