Though it hasn’t gotten an official renewal as yet, the co-creators of Netflix’s “Lost In Space” reboot are already at work developing a second season.
Premiering this past Friday, the family-friendly update of the classic 1960s sci-fi series scored mixed reviews but ended on a cliffhanger which leads to the obvious question as to whether the story of the Family Robinson will continue.
Speaking with Indiewire, co-creators Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless say the follow-up season will be wilder and go further into the origin of the robot:
“[The details are] pretty well worked out. There’s obviously a deep backstory of the robot and the causality of what caused this whole world to happen, and we’ve definitely figured that part out… We are working on scripts and hoping that if we get a green light we’re ready to go. We’ve had a lot of thoughts about it, and hopefully, if everyone watches it, we’ll get to see more adventures of the Robinsons, because we do have some crazy stuff planned out that we really hope we get to film.”
Netflix doesn’t release viewing numbers so it’s not clear how many people have tuned in to the new “Lost in Space” so far.
