Netflix has announced that its space-faring series, Lost in Space, will return for a third and final season in 2021.
“The Robinson Family’s epic space journey towards Alpha Centauri will conclude,” Netflix said via a press release. The streamer also revealed that Lost in Space showrunner Zack Estrin has agreed to a multi-year deal to produce more original series exclusively at Netflix. And according to Estrin, Lost in Space is ending on its own terms when Season 3 concludes, rather than being cancelled.
“From the beginning, we’ve always viewed this particular story of The Robinsons as a trilogy,” Estrin explained. “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.”
