About the Show: ‘Lost in Space’
Lost in Space is an American sci-fi television series aired on Netflix that follows the path of the Robinson family and their adventures on a spaceship named Jupiter 2.
The show is set in the future, in the year 2044, where everything is advanced. In that period, an alien spacecraft crashes into the surface of the Earth, which makes the Earth’s atmosphere no longer favorable for human beings’ existence.
The crash was massive, and its debris and other matters created contamination in the Earth’s atmosphere, which resulted in the skies being dark. To tackle such a gigantic catastrophe, the American military created an advanced mothership, Resolute, and its Jupiter spacecraft.
Dr. Robinson helped the whole project with a firm hope to rescue/transport the remaining people from Earth to an uncontaminated and undiscovered land named Alpha Centauri.
The Netflix show is a remake of the 1965 show of the same title that ran between 1965 and 1968 on CBS. Both shows are based on the 1812 novel, The Swiss Family Robinson, and the comic book Space Family Robinson.
Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless worked on the scripts on this Netflix show, and Jack Estrin served as the showrunner.
Currently, the Netflix adaption of Lost in Space consists of two seasons — the first season was released on April 13, 2018, and the season aired on December 24, 2019.
