The Robinsons became the first family of outer space a year before Gene Roddenberry beamed us up to the Starship Enterprise, and over a decade before George Lucas first took us for a ride in the Millennium Falcon. Debuting just four years before Neil Armstrong took a “giant leap for mankind” on the surface of the Moon, Lost in Space challenged viewers to imagine a future where families could travel to and explore new worlds.
It’s important to preserve that history and contextualize the show’s place in the sci-fi genre. Shows like Lost in Space return to orbit because we love passing down stories that inspire us to dream. They’re an intrinsic connection from one generation to the next. Titanic science fiction franchises like Star Wars and Star Trek have had numerous magazines over the years, which made their respective universes feel as vast offscreen as they did onscreen. Lost in Space never had an official print magazine in the vein of its space opera cousins.
So what better way to celebrate the launch of Lost in Space season 2 on Netflix than to give the franchise its long overdue magazine treatment? On Dec. 9th, we’re partnering with Netflix to release a 32-page Lost in Space special edition magazine.
Inside, we reflect on the history of the franchise, showcase colorful new character posters, go deep with our season two preview, featuring cast and creative team interviews, and get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the series. On these pages, you’ll find that legacy is a starting point. The adventures of the Robinsons and their fans are just beginning.
Full disclosure: The issue was funded and published in partnership with Netflix. All editorial and opinions expressed are those of Den of Geek.
