Hold your horses now! Lost in Space is making its comeback for a third and, unfortunately, final season in 2021. Here’s everything you need to know about season three of the outstanding sci-fi series.
Lost in Space serves as the reboot for the 1960s original TV series as well as the film during the 90s. It took the genre to different places and it’s been undervalued and underappreciated ever since. Alongside that, it lives under the shadows of other sci-fi series like Stranger Things and Altered Carbon.
However, the series has been getting it going since its second season release on Christmas Eve 2019. After a couple of months of waiting, the Netflix official @NXOnNetflix Twitter account confirmed that the sci-fi series would be coming back for a third season in 2021. The sad news, however, is that this will also be its last.

Like most fans of their favorite shows, the news of the final season disappointed many––but it’s also healthy for the series to conclude than be left with a cliffhanger. Knowing Netflix, that’s an opportunity you’d take advantage of.
Though there are many fans petitioning for more seasons of the sci-fi series, showrunner Zack Estrin had this to say:
“From the beginning, we’ve always viewed this particular story of The Robinsons as a trilogy. A 3 part epic family adventure with a clear beginning, middle and end. It’s also worth noting that, with what these characters go through just trying to survive each episode — if anyone deserves to catch their breath before their next mission — it’s Will, Penny, Judy, Maureen, John, Don West, Dr. Smith… and The Robot. And, of course, Debbie the Chicken. So while this chapter of Lost In Space is coming to a rousing conclusion, I’m excited about continuing to explore new stories with my friends at Netflix, and for all of the incredible possibilities that lie ahead.”

As for the release date, the series has only recently wrapped up filming––making audiences expect a late 2021 release. This will most probably fall on the dates of late Summer or Fall. Either way, Lost in Space is worth the wait.
