“Have you seen our Robot?”
That’s the question, Will Robinson and the rest of his family will be looking to answer when season 2 of Netflix’s Lost in Space premieres on the streaming network Christmas Eve.
Guess, I know what I will be watching while wrapping my presents and it won’t be A Christmas Story on TBS.
The trailer, which premiered last weekend at New York City Comic Con, features glimpses of all the Robinsons – Maureen (Molly Parker), John (Toby Stephens), Judy (Taylor Russell), Penny (Mina Sundwall), Will (Chicago’s Maxwell Jenkins) as well as Don West (Ignacio Serricchio) and Dr. Smith, played deliciously by Parker Posey.
From the 1:51 minute trailer, set to a lovely version of What a Wonderful World, we also see the Robinsons encountering creatures which may be friendly – an iridescent squid like creature – and deadly – a monster reminiscent of the xenomorph from Alien. There’s also a new unnamed character is also introduced, played by JJ Field (Captain America: The First Avenger), who could either an ally or an enemy. Watch below:
The Scoop on Season 2
Season 1 of Lost in Space introduced fans (old and new) to the Robinson family, as well as Robot, a synthetic alien, and the not-so-trustworthy Dr. Smith. At the end of the season, we discover the family hasn’t really been lost, but just when they are about to be reunited with their mothership, the Resolute, the Jupiter 2 is sucked into a black hole.
Season 2 promises more danger and adventure for the Robinson family as the Jupiter 2 is now stranded on a mysterious ocean planet without their beloved Robot.
The family must work together, alongside the mischievous, manipulative and possibly psychotic 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.”
It’s been over a year since Season 1 streamed on Netflix. This is due to the extreme amount of effect in the series and it shows in the trailer. Season 2 was filmed in Iceland from September 2018 – January 2019. Unlike many other shows on TV, with the exception of something like Game of Thrones, Lost in Space has a very cinematic look and feel to it.
Season 2 of Lost in Space debuts in Netflix on Dec. 24. Can. Not. Wait.
