Despite just debuting on Netflix and not having even earned a second season greenlight, the producers behind the streaming platform’s Lost in Space reboot are already moving forward with plans for what happens next. In an interview with IndieWire, series co-creators Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama revealed that they are already writing season two scripts before Netflix has had a chance to renew the show.
“We are working on scripts and hoping that, if we get a green light, we’re ready to go,” Sazama said. “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.”
Sharpless said: “Yeah, Season 2 is wild, so hopefully it can happen,” and added that the mythology of the series is “pretty well worked out.”
Depending on what the overall analytics show about the series and it’s viewers, Netflix likely will give the series a renewal relatively soon.
This new series is a departure from the campiness of Irwin Allen’s 1960’s series and the 1998 film version that tried to mix camp and grittiness. Lost in Space stars Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Ignacio Serricchio, Taylor Russell, Maxwell Jenkins, and Parker Posey.
