In nostalgia news located firmly on the Coach side of the likely scale, Lost in Space is getting a remake courtesy of Netflix. The potential for a reboot surfaced from the ether last year, but now it's official: Deadline reports that Netflix has given a new Lost in Space a ten episode straight-to-series order. In case you spry young things need a refresher course on the 1960s cult series, Lost in Space centers around the Robinson family as, "stranded light years from their intended destination, they find themselves battling a strange new alien environment and also their own personal demons" — or, as us 21st-century-types know it, what happens when the Google Maps compass is working on a two-second delay. Lost in Space, which is to be run by Zack Estrin (Prison Break), is looking at a 2018 debut. Ah, the present TV landscape, where you can get Lost in Space, no problem, but lost in time no longer.
