Lost In Space Remake Headed To Netflix.

Netflix, the reviver of long-dormant television shows, is planning to reboot another beloved franchise: The Sixties sci-fi series Lost in Space. There have been plans to bring the series back to TV since as early as 2000, with Burns working in conjunction with Sheila Allen, widow of series creator Irwin Allen, until her death in 2013. Legendary TV’s remake, which has yet to garner a straight-to-series order, is being written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (Dracula Untold) and produced by Game of Thrones vet Neil Marshall, who’s in line to direct. “Am I thrilled? Netflix is no stranger to the nostalgia business; there was Wet Hot American Summer recently, and they’ve got Pee Wee’s Big Holiday coming in March.

Just speaking for myself, we really felt that we had learned a lot from not only what we did, but what other people did and did wrong.” The original series, which lasted three seasons and 83 episodes, is set in a futuristic 1997 and follows the Robinson family’s space exploration. Four of the original cast members reunited at the Entertainment Weekly Lounge at Comic-Con last summer to celebrate the Blu-ray collection of the series for its 50th anniversary. “Half a century ago, we left Earth,” original Will Robinson Bill Mumy said at the time. “And now we’re finally back.” That’s on top of all the streaming service’s original programming, like the new Marvel series Jessica Jones, Aziz Ansari’s Master of None, Cary Fukunaga’s Beasts of No Nation and Adam Sandler’s controversial Ridiculous 6. 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings.

Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again. It was produced by 20th Century Fox, which continues to syndicate the existing episodes but does not hold rights or have any underlying ownership in the franchise.
