“From the beginning, we’ve always viewed this particular story of The Robinsons as a trilogy,” said Zack Estrin, the show’s producer. “A three-part epic family adventure with a clear beginning, middle and end. 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. So 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.”
Surprisingly, the Lost in Space premiere of season one back in April 2018 pulled in 3.16 million viewers overall on its first day of release according to Nielsen, numbers that probably have 1960s nostalgia to thank. It ranked it as Netflix’s third-best premiere-day viewership of the year behind Season 2 of Stranger Things and movie Bright. Since then, it seems to have lost a bit of traction in viewership but remains popular enough to land a deal for a third season in 2021.
“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,” said Ted Biaselli, Director of Original Series at Netflix. “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!”
