Netflix inks overall deal with Lost in Space showrunner Zack Estrin

Netflix has inked an overall deal with Lost in Space showrunner Zack Estrin.
The sci-fi series, which rebooted the classic serial about the Robinson family’s journey to find their way home after being through off course in a dangerous alien environment, was renewed this week for a third season. While that run will be the last for the family show, Estrin’s work is not done at the streamer.
His new multi-year deal will see him produce new series exclusively for Netflix.
Estrin says: “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. 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.”
Lost in Space 3 is expected to premiere in 2021.
