DANGER WILL ROBINSON, DANGER!
Netflix announced today the long, long, long-awaited release date for its LOST IN SPACE series.
Coming April 13 to the streaming site, the teaser actually looks really good!
The description is as followed: Stranded light years from their destination, the Robinson family must come together to survive. A new drama series based on the 1960s sci-fi classic.
From the teaser, it appears to take a more serious tone and reflects much of what we’ve learned about space in the roughly 50 years since the original TV series. The family is out to colonize Alpha Centauri, for starters.
Molly Parker (“Deadwood,” “Swingtown,” “House of Cards”) will play science mom Maureen Robinson in the series. Toby Stephens (“Black Sails”) will play husband John, Taylor Russell (“Falling Skies”) daughter Judy, Mina Sundwall (“Maggie’s Plan”) daughter Penny and Max Jenkins (“Sense8,” “Popstar”) son Will.
Parker Posey (“Dazed and Confused,” “Coneheads,” “Waiting For Guffman,”) will play the duplicitous Dr. Smith.
Not bad right? I’m glad they’ve gone away from the camp and made it dark and more exciting.
