At New York Comic Con, Netflix presented a panel for the returning sci-fi series, now dubbed ‘Lost in Space 2’ (kinda like how ‘Stranger Things’ numbers its seasons). It turns out, the streaming service is delivering this new batch of episodes as a Christmas gift, on December 24th. A trailer for the sophomore season was also released, which you can check out below:
It appears that a chunk of the new season will involve the Robinsons searching for the Robot who has gone missing and appears to be evolving.
While reaction to ‘Lost In Space’ has been mixed, there’s one thing for certain, the visuals on this show are pretty gorgeous, and the trailer exposes some new alien landscapes that viewers can feast on.
Set 30 years in the future (sh-yeah, right… when half the population doesn’t even think we’ve been to the moon?), ‘Lost in Space’ focuses on the Robinsons, a family selected to journey, along with others, to find a planet suitable to relocate the Earth’s population. But after their craft, The Resolute is attacked, they find themselves stranded on a sometimes inhospitable planet seeking a way to reconnect with The Resolute.
Molly Parker stars as Maureen, the matriarch of the Robinson clan, and a leading scientist and engineer. Toby Stephens portrays her husband, John, a Navy SEAL. Maxwell Jenkins plays their son Will, who has visibly sprouted up between Seasons 1 and 2. The family is rounded out by daughters, Judy (Taylor Russell) and Penny (Mina Sundwall). Among the others that are stranded with them are engineer Don West (Ignacio Serricchino) and the very shifty Doctor Smith (not her real name — Parker Posey). On the planet, Will befriends a mysterious robot, which has proven to be quite a valuable asset (and much more mobile and resourceful than the version in the old TV show).
‘Lost In Space 2’ arrives on Netflix on December 24th.
