New LOST IN SPACE Reboot Series Coming to Netflix

One of the biggest outer space-based science fiction television properties of the 1960s is making a comeback, making its way back into homes all over America thanks to a new revival, and set to run via a streaming service. And no, I’m actually not talking about Star Trek (although the exact same thing is happening to that show too.) I speak now of Lost In Space, the Fox-produced series which ran for three seasons from 1965-68, about the exploits the Robinson family after they were whisked away to the unknown parts of the galaxy. Netflix has outbid other outlets for the new reboot, and the show is expected to receive a straight-to-series order.

The new Lost In Space is being described as “an epic but grounded science fiction saga focusing on a young explorer family from Earth lost in an alien universe and the challenges they face in staying together against seemingly insurmountable odds.” This rebooted version of the classic series is coming from writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (Dracula Untold) who will executive produce along with Kevin Burns of Synthesis Entertainment, as well as Neil Marshall, who is expected to direct.

This would be the second reboot for Lost In Space, as the show got a big-screen version from New Line Cinema in 1998… that didn’t exactly launch a new franchise. Netflix is no doubt hoping the television version fares better than the movie did. Other attempts at reviving the series have nearly happened over the years, including a pilot directed by John Woo for the WB Network back in 2003, but it never saw the light of day. An NBC TV movie also nearly happened. Kevin Burns had been working closely with original series creator Irwin Allen’s widow, Sheila Matthews Allen, hoping to keep this version true to the spirit of the original.

This Robot just got an upgrade! Diamond Select Toys has taken their 10-inch rendition of B9, the friendly helper robot from Lost in Space, and given it a golden touch! This Golden Boy version features an all-new paint scheme, as seen in the episode "The Cave of the Wizards," and features lights and sounds taken straight from the classic sci-fi TV show. Lights on his head and chest blink constantly while B9 is on, and additional lights and exclusive "Golden Boy" dialogue are triggered with the push of a button, including "From now on, I'd appreciate it if you would call me Golden Boy," "I am a cybernetic hero," and "Watch it, I do not like grubby hands on my suit of gold!" You can also manually raise and lower his head, open and close his claws, extend his arms and turn his torso to the left and right. He even has wheels so you can roll him around! Comes packaged in a full-color window box with try-me feature.

AMERICAN GOTHIC PRESS ANNOUNCES IRWIN ALLEN’S LOST IN SPACE: THE LOST ADVENTURES

On the Famous Monsters panel at San Diego Comic-Con, American Gothic Press confirmed its licensing of Irwin Allen’s classic sci-fi series LOST IN SPACE for a special six issue series based on two unproduced scripts originally written for television.

LOST IN SPACE, which is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2015, was canceled in 1968 after a run of 83 episodes. But two unproduced teleplays have recently been discovered in the Irwin Allen Archives — both written by acclaimed television writer Carey Wilber (STAR TREK, LOST IN SPACE, RAWHIDE, THE TIME TUNNEL). These never-before-seen episodes will be adapted into a comic book series by American Gothic’s Holly Interlandi, with interior artwork by Kostas Pantoulas (METAL GIRL) and colors by Patrick McEvoy (FALL OF CTHULHU).

The series is being overseen by prolific television producer Kevin Burns (ANCIENT ALIENS, THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND, STAR WARS: THE LEGACY REVEALED). Burns has been responsible for developing and producing a number of Irwin Allen-themed projects and television specials over the years and, along with Legendary Television, is currently developing a new, updated version of LOST IN SPACE for Netflix. “LOST IN SPACE captured the imagination of an entire generation back in the 1960s. Even after fifty years, it continues to inspire the today’s top science fiction and fantasy writers,” says Burns. “Finding these scripts, and realizing them in the form of comic books, gives us a rare peek into what Irwin had in mind for the series’ much anticipated fourth season.”

“What I love about LOST IN SPACE is that it aired at the tail-end of Sci-Fi’s wide-eyed fascination with exploration instead of dystopian drudgery,” says Interlandi, AGP’s Editor-in-Chief. “Space, aliens, the universe—it was all still fun and exciting. Carey Wilber really captured that in his scripts, and putting them to the comic page has been an awesome experience.”

The first story arc is an adaptation of Wilber’s “The Curious Galactics”. It will run three issues and will premiere in March 2016. The first issue will ship with four collectible covers, which are pictured here.
