Netflix’s original new reimagining of the classic 1960’s science fiction series Lost In Space will make its debut on Friday, April 13.
Set 30 years in the future where space colonization is a reality, the Robinson family is among those who have been selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. However, 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 that is lightyears from their original destination.
Lost in Space stars Toby Stephens (Black Sails) as John Robinson and Canadian actress Molly Parker (House of Cards) as Maureen Robinson, the family parental leaders who are struggling with their estranged relationship in the midst of trying to keep their family safe. Taylor Russell (Falling Skies) is the strong-willed and confident Judy Robinson, Mina Sundall (Maggie’s Plan) is the quick-witted and definitive middle-child Penny, and Max Jennings (Sense8) is the curious and sensitive Will Robinson, the youngest and most vulnerable of the clan, who forms an unlikely and inexplicable bond with a sentient robot being.
Joining the Robinson family are Dr. Smith played by Parker Posey (Café Society), who is a master manipulator with an inscrutable endgame, and the roguish contractor Don West, played by Ignacio Serricchio (General Hospital).
Lucky fans in Toronto will be able to take part of a special preview screening of the first episode on Wednesday, April 11, at Toronto’s Cinesphere. The one-of-a-kind experience will include “out of this world” snacks, while a post-screening Q&A will take place with series star Molly Parker and Canadian astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield.
