Netflix has always been known for bringing back your favorite classics television shows and it will be rebooting the classic 1965 science fiction drama Lost in Space.
Netflix announced yesterday that will be coming up with 10-episodes first season of Lost in Space, which is expected to stream worldwide starting in 2018.The reboot will be run by Zack Estrin, one of the executive producers for Prison Break, and written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (Dracula Untold, Power Rangers).Also, Games of thrones director Neil Marshall is attached to this project. The new show will be produced by Legendary pictures which has been working to bring the show to Netflix since late 2015.
The original lost in space first time aired in 1965 on CBS. It ran 83 episodes, the series was followed as Robinson family they set off for Alpha Centauri. Further the mission gets off course when the crew’s doctor sabotages the spaceship and adrift into space for 3 years. The family’s adventure came to an end with show’s cancellation in 1968.You can watch instantly watch varieties of shows and movies after Netflix activate.
This is not the first time that Lost in Space has been recovered. Back in 1998, New line Cinemas produced a feature film directed by Stephen Hopkins. It starred William Hurt and Matt LeBlanc, but was not appreciated and many negative reviews accompanied the movie. Further, in 2003 the WB commissioned a pilot was directed by John Woo but he was not able to take it further for a full series. The franchise dwindle until 2014, soon after Legendary picked it up for fresh adaptation.
It will be very interesting to see how Netflix TV brings it to the screen with fresh adaptation, especially with one of the executive producer behind Prison Break. Other rebooted science fiction television shows such as Battlestar Galactica have returned with a far more serious take than their original and new version would be please the fan of the original show plus will also bring new modern audience along with it.
With a modern twist Netflix will bring a dark, modern Drama to the screens but hopefully they will keep the classic phrase “Danger, Will Robinson,” in the series.
