There have been rumblings of of a return for Lost in Space for a while now, but Netflix – the online streaming service responsible for hits like Daredevil, House of Cards, and Orange is the New Black – have now scooped it up for what’s expected to be a full season order.

The new Lost In Space is described as an epic but grounded science fiction saga focusing on a young explorer family from earth lost in an alien universe and the challenges they face in staying together against seemingly insurmountable odds. Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (Dracula Untold) are writing, while Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones) is expected to direct.

According to Deadline, Lost In Space is “part of a push in the arena of big scale, four-quadrant family entertainment,” so it’s likely that they’re taking a PG-13 approach here. That should work well though, and with the right budget, this could turn out really great.

Lost in Space aired for three seasons after debuting in 1965, lasting for a total of 83 episodes before it was cancelled amid declining ratings and a rapidly increasing budget. An attempt was made to bring the property to the big screen in 1998, and, well, that didn’t exactly live up to the expectations of fans! Here’s hoping this version fares better…
