There is a new Will Robinson in town. Actually, he’s getting out of town in the first look at Netflix’s “Lost in Space” reboot.
“Earth is our home, but only so long as it keeps us safe,” Will’s mother (Molly Parker) says, as she narrates the clip showing the planet in turmoil and her family making their way onto a spacecraft. “When this world can no longer serve that purpose, another planet, another colony, another chance, the rest of human history begins — now.”
Oh, they also throw a “Danger Will Robinson!” — coming from a new, creepy-sounding robot — in at the end there, for good measure.
The streaming service released the clip on Wednesday, which included the announcement the 10-episode season will drop on April 13.
A modern reimagining of the ’60s sci-fi series of the same name, “Lost in Space” stars Parker as engineer Maureen Robinson, Toby Stephens (“Black Sails”) as expedition commander John Robinson, and Parker Posey (“The House of Yes”) as Dr. Smith.
Here is the show’s official description: “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 (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.”
