Netflix has released the first full-length trailer for its Lost in Space remake ahead of the series' premiere this April. The original Lost in Space aired from 1965 through 1968 and had Guy Williams as Professor John Robinson.
Set 30 years in the future, Netflix's Lost in Space will follow a similar premise to the original: The Robinsons, a family of skilled space colonists, find themselves lost on a unusual planet lightyears from their destination. The latest of these projects is the upcoming Lost in Space reboot, which will tell the campy sci-fi sitcom through a modern and dramatic lens.
The new trailer includes some previously unrevealed shots of the planet the Robinson family find themselves stranded on, and the "Robot", a super scary looking extraterrestrial.
We still don't know a lot of the details, but based on the trailer, the series looks awesome! They do, inevitably, become lost in space. Prison Break exec producer Zack Estrin is the series showrunner.
In the 60s series, the classic "Danger Will Robinson" catchphrase was delivered by the Robinsons' helpful robot companion. The robot is also not part of the initial crew this time around. 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 unsafe alien environment, lightyears from their original destination. And the roguish, but inadvertently charming Don West (Ignacio Serricchio) is a highly-skilled, blue-collar contractor, who had no intention of joining the colony, let alone crash landing on a lost planet.
The last time that Netflix teased a video from the Robinson family was when the video-streaming service announced the premiere date, which is now set for April 13, 2018.
