Deadline reports that Mina Sundwall is the latest name to be joining the cast of 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.
Mina Sundwall (whose credits include Freeheld and Maggie’s Plan) will be playing the role of Penny Robinson, one of the Robinson children, the role played by Angela Cartwright in the 1960s CBS television series and by Lacey Chabert in the 1998 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. Serricchio joins a cast that includes Taylor Russell, Toby Stephens, Maxwell Jenkins, Molly Parker, Parker Posey and Ignacio Serricchio.
Lost In Space will be available on Netflix in 2018.
