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.
Toby Stephens (Whose credits include 13 Hours and Black Sails) will be playing the role of John Robinson, originally played by Guy Williams in the television series and later played by William Hurt in the 1998 feature film. Maxell Jenkins (Whose credits include Sense8 and Chicago Fire) will be playing the youngest Robinson child Will. They will be joining recently cast Taylor Russell.
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.
