Netflix Sets April Date for ‘Lost In Space’ Reboot

Netflix will debut its reboot of the 1960’s sci-fi series Lost In Space on April 13, the streaming service said Wednesday. 

The reimagining of the original series – which aired on CBS from 1965-68 – is set 30 years into the future, with the Robinson family forced to survive in a dangerous alien environment after their ship veers off course from its original destination.

Netflix has already made the series available for viewing in space, with the streaming service providing NASA with access to the pilot episode for astronauts at the International Space Station to view, said company officials. 

Lost In Space stars Molly Parker, Toby Stephens, Max Jenkins, Parker Posey and Ignacio Serricchio.
