Netflix’s reboot of Lost in Space has just upped one of its recurring stars to a regular cast member. Sibongile Mlambo, who portrays Angela Goodard in the series, has become a series regular for the second season of the sci-fi reboot.
Mlambo appeared in five episodes of the first season. Angela was one of the surviving crew members of the starship Resolute, but suffered from PTSD after the death of her husband and being stranded in an unknown galaxy. What role she’ll play in the second season, and whether her condition worsens or if she’ll continue to play a part in Dr. Smith’s machinations.
Set 30 years in the future, colonization in space is now a reality, and the Robinson family is among those tested and selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. But when the new colonists find themselves abruptly torn off course en route to their new home they must forge new alliances and work together to survive in a dangerous alien environment, light-years from their original destination. Stranded along with the Robinsons are two outsiders who find themselves thrown together by circumstance and a mutual knack for deception. The unsettlingly charismatic Dr. Smith (Posey) is a master manipulator with an inscrutable end game. And the roguish, but inadvertently charming Don West (Ignacio Serricchio) is a highly-skilled, blue-collar contractor, who had no intention of joining the colony, let alone crash landing on a lost planet.
The first season of Lost in Space is available to stream now on Netflix and features a cast that includes Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Parker Posey, Taylor Russell, Mina Sundwall and Max Jenkins.
