Lost In Space - Latest Updates on Release Date, Cast, Plot, and More!

The Robinsons are back for another season of extraterrestrial peril.

According to Deadline, Netflix’s family-friendly sci-fi adventure has been renewed for a third and final season, making it one of the most costly TV series reboots ever filmed. The announcement comes three months after the dramatic season 2 conclusion of the streaming series, which saw the Robinsons split up over space once more after battling off a ruthless ship officer, a major alien robot invasion, and their colony’s near-certain destruction.

The Swiss Family Robinson-inspired series, a futuristic remake of the 1960s program, is set 30 years in the future and follows the Robinson family of five as they are tested and selected to travel throughout the galaxy and assist in the construction of a new planet. The space colonists’ spacecraft is thrown off course during their journey, and the family must rely on their specialized abilities to survive the cosmic elements, with the assistance of a friendly but lethal alien robot. Lost in Space, which premiered in April 2018, will conclude with an undetermined number of episodes.

Following the bittersweet renewal, Ted Biaselli, Netflix’s director of original programs, praised the “action-packed and aesthetically magnificent” family drama and hailed the show’s different creative directors for providing the Robinsons a fresh lease of life on television. “We are ecstatic to bring you more Robinson Family adventures and to follow their path to what will undoubtedly be an amazing conclusion,” Biaselli added. “We’re excited to see where season 3 takes our family viewers!”

With the renewal news still fresh and production not yet underway, nothing is known about what beautiful and horrific new experiences the Robinsons will face when they return for their last voyage. Regardless, here’s all we know so far about Lost in Space season 3:

When will Lost in Space season 3 be available?

The underlying reason for Lost in Space’s termination – that it was always intended to be a three-season program – enraged viewers, but left them with few specifics about the finale. It’s uncertain when the Robinsons, the Robot (Brian Steele), the mechanic-turned-smuggler Don West (Ignacio Serricchio), and the criminal Dr. Smith (Parker Posey) will return to television. The good news is that when it comes to episode releases, TV’s favorite space family has followed a very constant pattern, so there’s plenty of data to rely on to narrow down when the Robinsons could return.

The first ten episodes of Lost in Space were shot between January and June 2017, and season one premiered on April 13, 2018, over a year later. After production wrapped in January 2019, Netflix released the remaining 10 episodes of Lost in Space season 2 on December 24, 2019, following a similar shooting and release schedule. Seasons weren’t shot in order, and given the 10-month gap between when production completed and when each season appeared, it appears that 10 episodes of Lost in Space took roughly a year and a half to complete.

Season breaks for Netflix programs are usually roughly a year-long, especially for successful shows that are less reliant on VFX and/or can be shot on sound stages rather than on location.

Season 1 of Lost in Space had the third-highest premiere-day viewing on Netflix in 2018 after only Stranger Things season 2 and the Will Smith sci-fi thriller Bright. However, because it was shot all over the world, from Vancouver to Iceland, and is set in a digitally produced outer space, each season takes a little longer to air.

For the time being, the release date for Lost in Space is unknown, owing to the several production shutdowns that happened in early March 2020 due to coronavirus worries.

Who will appear in Season 3 of Lost in Space?

Despite having a large mobile space colony as a co-star, Lost in Space’s principal cast has stayed relatively the same over the seasons.

Toby Stephens, who starred in Black Sails, plays the Robinsons’ steadfast patriarch John, while Molly Parker, who starred in Deadwood and House of Cards, plays Maureen, the feisty and clever matriarch. Will, the rosy-cheeked, robotically connected guiding light, is embodied by the youthful Maxwell Jenkins. Mina Sundwall plays the red-headed, quick-witted Penny, and Taylor Russell plays Judy, who is level-headed and steadfast. Ignacio Serricchio plays the gruff-but-loyal ship technician Don, who was a guest character in season 1 before becoming a series regular in season 2. Parker Posey also appears as the deceitful career criminal Smith, better known as June Harris.
