‘Lost in Space’ is a science-fiction television series set 30 years in the future where space colonization is a reality. The series is a reimagination of the 1965 series of the same name, which is based on the 1812 novel ‘The Swiss Family Robinson.’ It follows the lives of the members of the Robinson family, as they are selected to colonize the Alpha Centauri star system since the survival of humanity is at stake. An alien robot forces them to evacuate the mothership (Resolute) and crash on another habitable planet.
The family members must brave unfamiliar environments and find a way to survive since they are light years away from where they were headed. Created by Irwin Allen, the series premiered on April 13, 2018. Over two seasons, the show has garnered a massive fan following due to its superior visual presentation, diverse cast, and intense emotional hook. Naturally, you must be looking forward to season 3. Here is what we know!
Lost in Space Season 3 Release Date
‘Lost in Space’ season 2 landed on December 24, 2019, in its entirety on Netflix. The second season consists of ten episodes with a running time of 39-65 minutes each.
Fans would be delighted to know that the series has been renewed for the third season on March 9, 2020. Unfortunately, along with the good news, the network also revealed that season 3 will serve as the final season. Announcing the show’s renewal, one of the executive producers, Zach Estrin, said, “From the beginning, we’ve always viewed this particular story of The Robinsons as a trilogy. A three-part epic family adventure with a clear beginning, middle, and end.”
As of today, the third season of the sci-fi space drama is in production. The filming commenced in September 2020 and is scheduled to wrap up by January 2021. An official announcement is yet to be made regarding the exact release date of the final season. However, if everything goes accordingly, we can expect ‘Lost in Space’ season 3 to release sometime in early 2021.

Lost in Space Season 3 Cast: Who is in it?
The Robinson family is the pivot of the series. Therefore, fans will see all the characters playing the Robinsons return for the third season, which means Molly Parker and Toby Stephens will reprise their roles as Maureen and John Robinson. Their three children – Judy, Will, and Penny – will return too, and Taylor Russell, Maxwell Jenkins, and Mina Sundwall will play the respective characters. Other cast members include Parker Posy (June Harris/Dr. Smith), Ignacio Serricchio (Don West), Sibongile Mlambo (Angela), and Ajay Friese (Vijay Dhar).
Most of these main cast members are expected to be seen once again, along with some new faces. A new character will be introduced to the viewers in season 3, that is Lex Elle’s Park. Another new actor will join the cast to play Grant Kelly, Judy’s biological father. There may be a few exceptions in cast members who we may not see again. These include characters whose death has not been confirmed, such as JJ Feild’s Ben Adler and Parker Posy’s June Harris/Dr. Smith.
Lost in Space Season 3 Plot: What can it be About?
Season 2 ends on a cliffhanger, which sees the Robinson kids being separated from their parents and stranded in one part of space while their parents are far away, in some other part. We are finally introduced to the long-lost ship, Fortuna, and its commander, Grant Kelly, who is also Judy’s biological father. At the end of the season, we also see Dr. Smith/June Harris die during the fight with the robots, but her body has not been found.
Season 3 will look at what is going on with Maureen and John and whether they will be able to reunite with their children. This season may look into the origin of the alien robots and the truth behind Dr.Smith/June Harris’ death. One burning question remains: Who is responsible for the human-made signal leading Jupiter 2 to the Fortuna?
With Grant Kelly in the picture, what will that mean for Judy and the kids, especially since they are separated from Maureen and John? Co-writer Matt Sazama revealed that the story of the Robinsons has a very gratifying ending. However, he also added that there is a possibility of more stories to follow the conclusion of the third season.
