The Tanners and the Gilmores aren’t the only TV families coming to Netflix in the near future.

In a competitive situation, a reboot of the 1965 cult series Lost in Space has landed at the streaming giant.

The original comedy, which ran from 1965 to 1968, centered on the Robinson family as they attempted to colonize another planet in deep space — a mission that was sabotaged by a foreign secret agent and caused their ship to get knocked off course.

According to our sister site Deadline, the updated version is an epic (but grounded!) sci-fi saga about “a young explorer family from Earth, lost in an alien universe, and the challenges they face in staying together against seemingly insurmountable odds.”
