The journey of the Jupiter will continue as Lost in Space season 3 has been confirmed by Netflix, and the forthcoming run will be the final outing for the series. The family-friendly space drama has been a draw for audiences as a worthy successor to the 1960s original with its grand sense of adventure with the Robinson family at its core.
Netflix has also confirmed that Lost in Space season 3 will allow the Robinson family to conclude its journey to Alpha Centauri. Director of Original Series at Netflix Ted Biaselli says, “We are so thrilled to share more adventures of The Robinson Family and see their journey through to what is sure to be an epic finale. We’re especially thankful to Zack Estrin, Matt Sazama, Burk Sharpless, Kevin Burns and Jon Jashni for helming Lost in Space, which has brought viewers a premium action-packed and visually spectacular series that the whole family can enjoy together, and we can’t wait for our family audiences to see where season 3 will lead!”
Showrunner Zack Estrin reassures fans that Lost in Space season 3 will definitely have a satisfying ending. “From the beginning, we’ve always viewed this particular story of The Robinsons as a trilogy: a three part epic family adventure with a clear beginning, middle and end,” he says. “It’s also worth noting that, with what these characters go through just trying to survive each episode — if anyone deserves to catch their breath before their next mission — it’s Will, Penny, Judy, Maureen, John, Don West, Dr. Smith… and The Robot. And, of course, Debbie the Chicken.”
Estrin won’t be resting his laurels after the conclusion of Lost in Space season 3, however, as he has inked an overall deal with Netflix to produce content for the streaming service in the future. “While this chapter of Lost In Space is coming to a rousing conclusion, I’m excited about continuing to explore new stories with my friends at Netflix, and for all of the incredible possibilities that lie ahead,” he says.
Lost in Space season 3 is expected to return to Netflix some time in 2021. Season two premiered on Christmas Eve last year, over a year-and-a-half after season one, so the long hiatus is not entirely unexpected. Lost in Space stars Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Maxwell Jenkins, Mina Sundwall, Taylor Russell, Ignacio Serricchio and Parker Posey and is produced by Legendary Television.
