    Cult sci-fi series Lost in Space went off the air in 1968, though it’s remained in popular culture thanks to reruns and the enduring power of the phrase “Danger, Will Robinson!” Now, it’s headed back to TV, or more specifically to Netflix. Executive producer Kevin Burns told EW.com that Netflix is remaking the show. There have been plans to bring the series back to TV since as early as 2000, with Burns working in conjunction with Sheila Allen, widow of series creator Irwin Allen, until her death in 2013. Netflix is no stranger to the nostalgia business; there was Wet Hot American Summer recently, and they’ve got Pee Wee’s Big Holiday coming in March.

    Lost in Space comes to Netflix paired with the talents of producer/director Neil Marshall, who’s won acclaim for directing the intricate action set-pieces in Game of Thrones’ “Blackwater” and “The Watchers on the Wall.” Burns will executive-produce along with Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, the writing team behind The Last Witch Hunter and Dracula Untold.

    Honestly, I am not really that familiar with this show, Lost in Space, but it does look like an interesting one, so yes, I couldn't wait to see it on Netflix.

    Came out in the sixties before Star Trek. Had a good first season, then got silly after that.

    I'm also not particularly familiar with this show either, but that's hardly surprising since the original actually ended 9 years before I was even born!

    While sci-fi isn't usually my genre of choice, I might give this a watch considering it is supposed to be a bit of a cult classic.
