Lost in Space sets its return date on Netflix

Lost in Space is back again, and this time it’s heading to Netflix.

Yes, it’s another reboot, but there’s a reason I’m intrigued.

Not seen in this trailer is Parker Posey in the role of Dr. Smith… man, I so wanted to skip this series, but with Posey involved, I’m in. I can’t help myself. She makes anything she’s in instantly better.

Yeah, I’m in.

Here’s the full logline for the new series.

Set 30 years in the future, colonization 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, light-years from their original destination. Stranded along with the Robinsons are two outsiders who find themselves thrown together by circumstance and a mutual knack for deception. The unsettlingly charismatic Dr. Smith (Posey) is a master manipulator with an inscrutable end game. And the roguish, but inadvertently charming Don West (Ignacio Serricchio) is a highly-skilled, blue-collar contractor, who had no intention of joining the colony, let alone crash landing on a lost planet.

Lost in Space will launch on April 13.
