And now for something completely shocking. Netflix today announced that they have indeed renewed Lost In Space for a second season. I couldn’t be happier that they decided to renew in what’s already one of my favorite series this year. From the pilot episode to the last, it’s a non-stop sci-fi thrill ride and it had one of the best villains in Parker Posey that I’ve seen in a long time. The reviews for Lost In Space were mixed with critics but fans loved the show and actually petitioned for a second season, especially after the finale cliffhanger. In what’s becoming a normal thing for Netflix, they tweeted out a short clip with the number two and Will Robinson’s robot announcing DANGER WILL ROBINSON. Check out the tweet below.

If you are un aware of Lost In Space :
is a Netflix Original dramatic and modern reimagining of the classic 1960’s science fiction series. Set 30 years in the future, colonization in space is now a reality, and the Robinson family is among those tested and selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. But 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, light-years from their original destination. Stranded along with the Robinsons are two outsiders who find themselves thrown together by circumstance and a mutual knack for deception. The unsettlingly charismatic Dr. Smith (Parker Posey) is a master manipulator with an inscrutable end game. 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.
Lost In Space was one of the best pure Sci-Fi shows I have seen in a while and I was especially surprised by the budget that the show was given. The news comes one month (and a day!) after the sci-fi series’ first batch of 10 episodes dropped on the streaming service.
