Lost in Space season 2 in development

By Nathaniel Dalby - Tue 17th Apr 2018 News

Lost in Space season 2 is being developed already, the creators have announced.

Showrunners Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless have claimed that they have begun work on the second season, despite it not being officially announced by Netflix itself.

The confirmation comes just days after the first season of the sci-fi reboot was released on Netflix, with many fans already making their way through the 10 episodes.

Lost in Space is a reboot of the ‘60s sci-fi series and stars Toby Stephens, Molly Parker and Taylor Russell. 

The series follows the journey of a family of space colonists as they crash land on an unknown planet while trying to find a new one for humanity to colonise.

The series has been described as “family friendly” despite its gritty sci-fi look, with Netflix clearly spending an awful amount of money making it look as good as possible.

In an interview, the creators said that they have a number of good ideas for a second season.

“[Season 2 is] pretty well worked out. 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 are working on scripts and hoping that if we get a green light we’re ready to go. 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.”

Netflix has yet to confirm a second season, which depends on how many of its subscribers watched it. With only 4 days of release so far, you’d assume that they’d give it at least a few weeks before committing. 

Lost in Space was previously turned into a big-budget film in 1998, starring Gary Oldman and Matt LeBlanc, amongst others.

Reception for the film was terrible, killing any potential franchise dead. This series is the first time the property has been attempted since.

You can watch the entire first season of Lost in Space on Netflix right now.
