“Lost in Space”, one of Netflix’s sci-fi shows is coming to an end. As reported, Netflix has been producing Lost in Space for a third and the final season is expected to premiere in 2021. This isn’t the product of Netflix’s habit of canceling shows after three seasons, thankfully. Lost in Space is considered as the modernized tale of the Robinsons and the Robot. Zack Estrin, exclusive producer/series showrunner emphasized that the trilogy was designed as “A three-part epic family adventure with a clear beginning, middle, and end” and the final chapter is just “coming to a rousing conclusion”.
Notwithstanding, the final chapter of Lost in Space isn’t the farewell from Estrin to the streamer. On top of the renewal, the producer has signed a multi-year overall deal to produce more Netflix exclusives.
Lost in Space hasn’t been a critical darling for Netflix. With some exceptions, its average responses on Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes have characterized as a good-but-not-great production. With that said, there’s little doubt that it has been important to Netflix. The first season pulled in strong viewership, and Netflix’s advertising blitz for the second season made clear that it expected a repeat. Even if a third season isn’t a major success, the series will have achieved its goal of reeling in subscribers.
