Lost In Space season two: everything you need to know

From Digital Spy

The Netflix reimagining of '60s classic Lost In Space has been unleashed on the world. (Read our spoiler-free review here.)

The adventures of the Robinsons in space look set to continue past this first ten-episode season which isn't the gritty reboot some were fearing.

While there's no official word as of yet, here's what to expect in season two of Lost In Space from Netflix.

Danger! Spoilers for season one follow...

Lost In Space season two release date: when's it back?

Filming on the first season took around seven months and then there's post-production, including the impressive CG work, which adds another few months. At best, we could expect to see a second season towards the end of 2019 or, more likely, April 2020.

Interestingly, the show's big names – Molly Parker, Toby Stephens, Parker Posey and Ignacio Serricchio – don't have any upcoming projects officially on their slate. So, if the scripts are already completed, then filming could begin soon, which could bring it forward somewhat.

In the past, Netflix have sneakily commissioned multiple seasons of shows without telling us – as with Stranger Things – so more Robinson adventures could have already been greenlit on the quiet.

Lost In Space season two cast: who's in it?

With all the main cast surviving – just – to continue their exploits, it looks like the Robinson family will be on their own as their ship, the 'Jupiter 2', has been taken way off course to an unknown destination (more on that below).

Returning will be parents Maureen and John, played by Molly Parker and Toby Stephens respectively, though the former told Digital Spy that, due to the physical demands of filming Lost In Space, she's "gonna go to the gym" before filming starts again.

And, of course, there are the Robinson kids, Judy, Will and Penny: Taylor Russell, Maxwell Jenkins and Mina Sundwall should all be back for more perilous japes and teen angst. They spoke to Digital Spy about the updating of gender roles for the new show in comparison to the original '60s incarnation.

In the shady past corner, there's Dr Smith (well, she's actually June Harris) and smuggling rogue Don West so you can fully expect to see the brilliant Parker Posey and Ignacio Serricchio up to no good once more. The former was left imprisoned by Maureen on their ship but we're sure she'll be out before long.

Now separated from Earth ship 'The Resolute', it's not known if we'll see what the crew of the other 'Jupiter' spaceships are up to. But we wouldn't be surprised to see the politician who likes to take charge Victor Dhar (Raza Jaffrey) return with his son Vijay (Ajay Friese), who has struck up a Romeo and Juliet-style relationship with Penny Robinson.

Lost In Space season two plot: what's going to happen?

Season one ended on an epic cliffhanger as, just when you thought that the Robinsons were safe (for the first time all season!) and reunited with their fellow colonists on The Resolute, the gang were mysteriously zapped away (we assume because of the alien engine) from the planet they never bothered to name.

According to Will, where they find themselves is connected with a drawing by his Robot – perhaps this is what we're calling the 'Planet of the Robots'. Undoubtedly this will form the basis of the next season.

We're also sure to find out just why the human colonists had been using (unknown to the majority) this stolen alien tech. Cue more flashbacks to nefarious deals and reasons as to why the Robots are dealing with humanity.

The Resolute's original destination was Alpha Centauri, where the future of mankind lay. Will Victor and his colonists continue on this journey or try to reconnect with the Robinsons on their Jupiter?

Lost In Space season two trailer: when can we expect it?

If Netflix are really kind to us, we might see a brief teaser by the end of this year but don't expect a trailer till early/mid 2019.

Lost In Space season two – will the Robot be back?

As we saw in season finale, the Robot was involved in quite a big battle with another of its kind and seemed to meet its end in the midst of space.

But, we've already seen it "die" once before so there's no reason to suggest that we won't see it in season two. Especially as it seems 'Jupiter 2' has found itself at the 'Planet of the Robots'.

We're expecting multiple Robot action and maybe even some flashbacks with Robots meeting humans for the first time.
