“Falling Skies” actress Taylor Russell has been set to play the eldest daughter Judy Robinson in the upcoming “Lost in Space” series remake at Netflix.
Like the original 1960s series, this will follow the Robinson family as they are forced to come together in a time of crisis. Stranded light years from their intended destination, they find themselves battling a strange new alien environment and their own personal demons.
Russell is the project’s first piece of casting, the ten-episode sci-fi series was formally ordered from Legendary TV in June and is slated to premiere in 2018. Marta Kristen and Heather Graham have taken on the role of Judy Robinson in the past.
Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are penning the script while Zack Estrin will serve as showrunner.
