Lost In Space producers discuss season 2 as they spill details | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV
The final episode of Lost In Space saw the Robinsons in imminent danger as they were hurtled through a wormhole by an alien ship.
Executive producers Zack Estrin, Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless previously spoke to Express Online about recreating the look and feel of the original Lost In Space show.
They revealed that they approached the show with a cinematic vision in mind, and aimed to bring a filmic look and narrative to the show by using their collection of filmmaking skills.
However, after fans binged the first season when it dropped on Netflix earlier on this month, they instantly began asking questions about the possibility of a second season.
Upon completing their series, the team of producers spoke about what may be next for the hit Netflix show.
Zack mentioned their preparation process, and what they are hoping for from this series.
He said: “We’re obviously preparing for success, and Netflix has us doing that as well.
“We always want [to know] what future stories are going to be told because everyone is hoping that this is going to go well.”
He went on to discuss the possibility of further episodes, and what the team plans to do next.
He continued: “While we have only recently finished wrapping up that first season for a couple months now, us and the writers have been dreaming up what the future of this show will or could be.”
As the the show’s ratings were released today, it looks like Lost In Space did extremely well for Netflix.
With an abundance of fantasy-themed TV show – Game of Thrones, Vikings, etc. – viewers seemed to enjoy the refreshingly intelligent and witty science-fiction show.
Matt spoke about being one of the first teams to revisit the sci-fi genre, and how it could work to their advantage.
He revealed: “There are a bunch of space shows that are coming down the pipe and we’re glad that we’re a little ahead of the curve.
“I think there are going to be a lot more shows coming, and hopefully everyone will think that they’re copying us.”
Matt went on to announce: “I think the original cast is an asset. And we don’t know exactly how or why they’ll fit into the show, but we’d love to include them in the way we included Bill Mumy.
“We’re not afraid of the history of the show. We embrace it and we want everyone – including old fans – to be fans of our show too.”
And with Bill Mumy’s character – the real Dr. Zachary Smith – still alive, could he return in the second season to cause havoc on Parker Posey’s villain?
Lost In Space is available on Netflix now.
