'Lost in Space' Trailer: A Lengthy Look at the Reimagined Sci-Fi Series

Netflix  YouTube

The release marks 50 years since the original sci-fi drama ended on CBS in 1968.

The new footage includes a first look at the series' reimagined Robot, a character from the original series set to be very different in the new version.

One piece of the original show's core that remains is the robot and its iconic line, "Danger, Will Robinson!" However, in the new series Will's protector appears more explicitly extra terrestrial. The robot is also not part of the initial crew this time around. I sincerely hope Posey chews all the scenery just as much as original Dr. Smith Jonathan Harris. However, the Robinson family find themselves abruptly torn off course en route to their new home and stranded on a unsafe, unknown planet. Estrin says the heart of the original 1963 Lost in Space series is still present in the reboot but has been updated for modern audiences.

Written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, the series tells the story of the Robinson family who are picked to try to colonization a new planet.

This reboot promises to be a grittier and darker take on the property, and it premieres on Netflix on April 13.

Parker Posey's Dr. Smith, meanwhile, confesses that her agenda with regard to the wayward space travelers is, well, "complicated". In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Zack Estrin called it "a true family adventure in the vein of the original Jurassic Park" and said it's created to appeal to both nostalgic fans of the original series and newcomers who might want something a little less campy in their science fiction. And the roguish, but inadvertently charming Don West, played by IGNACIO SERRICCHIO (Bones, The Wedding Ringer), is a highly-skilled, blue collar contractor, who had no intention of joining the colony, let alone crash landing on a lost planet.
