Netflix’s Lost in Space is all set for a second season to premiere on December 24, 2019, which is not very far away. The series is a science fiction based on the novel of the same name. It follows the adventures of space colonists whose spaceship veers off course. The series received brilliant reviews for its extraordinary storytelling. Season One premiered on April 13, 2018, with ten episodes. The cast includes a talented ensemble of Molly Parker, Toby Stephens, Taylor Russell, Mina Sundwall, Ignacio Serricchio, Parker Posey, and many others.
The series was being nominated for various Saturn Awards and Visual Effects Society Awards. Science fiction is a tricky genre that requires tons of research and scientific accuracy, to some extent. Netflix’s Altered Carbon, Black Mirror, Stranger Things, Sense 8 are a handful of shows which make the maximum efforts to ensure the series is engaging as well as accurate. Science fiction needs seriousness and drama that was showcased very well in Lost in Space. Season two began production in September 2018.
The filming was done in Iceland, which concluded in January this year. On 31st March 2018, the series pilot was screened at Awesome Con in Washington, DC. This raised expectations of the series from its viewers and fans. The second season releases on Christmas Eve, which will be perfect for Netflix users to binge-watch the show during the holidays. Rotten Tomatoes’ the critical consensus reads: “Lost in Space’s production values are ambitious enough to attract sci-fi adventure fans, while the story’s large heart adds an emotional anchor to all the deep space derring-do.”
IGN gave a rating of 8.5/10 to the first season, calling it “an excellent sci-fi adventure with a slight villain problem,” giving particular praise to the Robinson family while criticizing Parker Posey’s Dr. Smith as an unsophisticated and one-dimensional character who lacks redeeming qualities. The fate of their favorite characters will finally be revealed on 24 December 2019.
