Netflix has announced its reimagining of Lost in Space has been renewed for a third and final season, which will air in 2021.
“From the beginning, we’ve always viewed this particular story of The Robinsons as a trilogy,” said executive producer and showrunner Zack Estrin over the series’ Twitter account. “A three-part epic family adventure with a clear beginning, middle and end. It’s also worth noting that, with what these characters go through just trying to survive each episode — if anyone deserves to catch their breath before their next mission — it’s Will, Penny, Judy, Maureen, John, Don West, Dr. Smith… and The Robot. And, of course, Debbie the Chicken. So while this chapter of Lost In Space is coming to a rousing conclusion, I’m excited about continuing to explore new stories with my friends at Netflix, and for all of the incredible possibilities that lie ahead.”
Though Lost in Space is coming to an end, Estrin has signed a multi-year deal with Netflix to produce original series for the streaming giant.
“We are so thrilled to share more adventures of the Robinson family and see their journey through to what is sure to be an epic finale,” said Ted Biaselli, Netflix’s Director of Original Series. “We’re especially thankful to Zack Estrin, Matt Sazama, Burk Sharpless, Kevin Burns and Jon Jashni for helming Lost in Space, which has brought viewers a premium action-packed and visually spectacular series that the whole family can enjoy together, and we can’t wait for our family audiences to see where Season 3 will lead!”
There’s more danger — and adventure — ahead for the Robinson family! With the Jupiter 2 stranded on a mysterious ocean planet without their beloved Robot, the Robinsons must work together, alongside the mischievous and manipulative Dr. Smith and the always charming Don West, to make it back to the Resolute and reunite with the other colonists. But they quickly find all is not as it seems. A series of incredible new threats and unexpected discoveries emerge as they look for the key to finding Robot and safe passage to Alpha Centauri. They will stop at nothing to keep their family safe… survival is a Robinson specialty after all.
