Netflix’s latest offering of the re-imagined Lost in Space may have only premiered last Friday, but the co-creators have revealed a script for season 2 has already been fleshed out.
The ten-episode series has gotten off to a mostly positive response from audiences and critics alike so far. For those who have binge watched the whole series already know that the finale left us with a bit of a cliffhanger, leaving the door wide open for a possible second season.

Although Netflix has yet to confirm the series is being renewed for that second season, the show creators, Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, have been discussing the possibility of a return with the focus being on the Robot’s backstory, and some even more crazy adventures for the Robinson family.
“[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.”
The re-imagining of the classic 1960’s science fiction series is set 30 years in the future, colonisation 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, lightyears from their original destination.
