For the last year or so now, there’s been plans to remake the classic Lost in Space TV series. This past weekend has brought word that said redo has finally found itself a home.
As reported by Deadline, this new take on the fantastic ‘60s sci-fi show was the subject of a bidding war that concluded with the series being snapped up by Netflix. No information has been made public on when the show expects to drop on the on-demand service, and things are certainly still in the early stages right now, but at least the show finally has somewhere to reside.
The original Lost in Space series debuted way back in 1965, focussing on the Robinson family’s adventures in space after they were left stranded thanks to some no-good shenanigans from Dr. Zachary Smith. The show ran for three seasons, totalling eighty five episodes. Following that came a doomed ‘70s cartoon show and an attempted 2003 live-action series from John Woo, and of course there was 1998’s Lost in Space movie featuring the likes of Gary Oldman, Matt LeBlanc, Heather Graham and William Hurt.
