Will you be watching the new Lost in Space?

Font Size:

That’s right, Netflix has remade the much loved 60’s TV series, with the same characters but all new faces.

So far, we can see a few changes have been made. Dr Smith is now mysterious, intense woman who’s great under pressure and won’t be making many jokes. The Robot has had a major upgrade – no more slinky arms and foil, it’s now massive, humanoid and has its own complicated personality and back story.

If you’re a Lost in Space fan then it might be time to settle down on the couch this winter and see if they’ve done it justice. Will you be watching? And if so, let us know what you thought!

Here’s a look at Lost in Space, then and now.
