Netflix’s Lost in Space reboot is really making up for … well, Lost time. Just weeks after finally debuting a first teaser, the Robinsons are already crash-landing into April with a full trailer and an intriguing new mystery.
You’d be forgiven not to remember that Netflix confirmed a Lost in Space reboot series way back in 2016, but the danger to Will Robinson is finally real. The Jupiter 2 launches anew in our first teaser for the revamped sci-fi classic, which has already charted an April premiere.
Netflix’s Lost in Space reboot has seemed a bit … well, lost in 2017, but our first major update of the new year has arrived. Smash and Homeland alum Raza Jaffrey will recur as a character not noted from the original series, potentially hinting at the revived series’ plot.
Netflix’s Lost in Space reboot certainly got our attention with the casting of Parker Posey as a gender-swapped Dr. Smith, but will every addition prove as interesting? We’ll find out, as the Jupiter 2 crew comes closer to completion with the addition of Bones star Ignacio Serricchio in another role outside the Robinson family.
Most of Netflix’s Lost in Space reboot casting has been fairly straightforward, but the addition of Dr. Smith is an interesting one. Rather than place another male actor in the role, the 2018 series has signed Parker Posey to portray the nefarious doctor responsible for the Robinson family predicament.
It’s a fair question how Netflix’s upcoming Lost in Space reboot will tackle the source material in a modern serialized context, but the series is at least in good hands. The latest star to join the Lost family Robinson is none other than Deadwood and House of Cards star Molly Parker, playing a very familiar role.
Netflix finally got the ball rolling on its Lost in Space reboot series with the casting of Taylor Russell, and now the displaced family Robinson has a patriarch as well. Fresh off the final season of Starz’s Black Sails, Toby Stephens will serve as the Robinson family head who gets his family Lost in Space.
Netflix’s Lost in Space TV series has been buried by an avalanche of premieres and a long time in development, but it seems Lost has found its first Robinson. Falling Skies star Taylor Russell becomes the first to join the cast, with other Robinsons sure to follow.
