Lost in Space season 2 finally has a release date! Here's everything we know about the Robinsons next space adventure.
Lost in Space season 2 will have a winter arrival, ending a long hiatus for fans of the sci-fi reboot. Lost in Space Season 1’s promising, cliffhanger conclusion is headed for a resolution as the Robinson family and their companions will finally find new alien landscapes to explore, bringing to fruition the “wild” ideas that creators Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama were said to have come up with in their IndieWire interview.

“We are working on scripts and hoping that, if we get a green light, we’re ready to go,” Sazama said at the time. “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.”
Lost in Space Season 2 Release Date
Lost in Space season 2 will be have a Christmas Eve arrival with the show premiering all its 10 episodes on December 24.
Lost in Space Season 2 Trailer
The full trailer for Lost in Space season 2 has arrived. The Robinsons, using all their ingenuity once again, have created…Space Boat.
Here’s the exciting trailer for Lost in Space Season 2 that came out of New York Comic Con 2019.
Lost in Space Season 2 Episodes
Lost in Space is likely an expensive show to produce, but Netflix isn’t shying away in season 2. Just like the first season, the upcoming run will consist of 10 episodes.
Lost in Space Season 2 Cast
Lost in Space season 2’s cast could either be much bigger or much smaller. Notably, Lost in Space season 1 ends with a huge paring down of the cast so that only the eight main characters from the original series remain: John, Maureen, Judy, Penny, Will, Smith, Don, and the Robot. Characters like Victor, Vijay, the Watanabes, and more are back home on aboard the Resolute and on their way to Alpha Centauri.

With the absence of those supporting characters though, the show has a unique opportunity to make its cast even bigger. The Robinsons, Smith, and West are now on the outskirts of an alien world. Will this mean more CGI/make-up characters? One can only hope so.
Though a report from The Hashtag Show suggests that some honest-to-goodness human being characters will be joining the show in Season 2. The first new addition will be Ava, a 20-40-something mechanic supervisor. She’s a serious individual with little time for Don West’s nonsense. Commander Jiang will also be introduced in Season 2. She is the commander aboard the Resolute and is described as capable, stalwart, and…uh, resolute? Looks like the Robinsons won’t be lost that much longer.
Lost in Space Season 2 Plot Details
The Robinsons were only kind of lost in space in Lost in Space season 1. They had other marooned colonists to keep them company and at least roughly knew the location of the Resolute. For Lost in Space season 2, all of that goes bye-bye.

The log line for Lost In Space season 2 indicates a wet journey ahead with the search for the Robot taking a central role in the story:
There’s more danger — and adventure — ahead for the Robinson family! With the Jupiter 2 stranded on a mysterious ocean planet without their beloved Robot, the Robinsons must work together, alongside the mischievous and manipulative Dr. Smith and the always charming Don West, to make it back to the Resolute and reunite with the other colonists. But they quickly find all is not as it seems. A series of incredible new threats and unexpected discoveries emerge as they look for the key to finding Robot and safe passage to Alpha Centauri. They will stop at nothing to keep their family safe… survival is a Robinson specialty after all.
So in conclusion…Lost in Space season 2: fewer people, more robots!
