TVLine exclusively reports that Taylor Russell is the first person to be cast in Netflix’s Lost In Space reboot.
The new Lost In Space takes its cues from the original CBS series, revolving around the Robinson family, which is forced to come together in a time of crisis. Stranded light years from their intended destination, the Robinson’s find themselves battling a strange new alien environment and their own personal demons.
Taylor Russell (whose credits include Falling Skies and Dead of Night) will be playing the role of Judy Robinson, John and Maureen’s eldest child that was played by Marta Kristen in the television series and later played by Heather Graham in the 1998 feature film. The reboot series has been written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, with Zack Estrin serving as Executive Producer (and will also serve as showrunner) and Kevin Burns and Jon Jashni of Synthesis Entertainment, as well as Neil Marshall and Marc Helwig of Legendary TV-based Applebox serving as Producers.
