The Stars of Netflix’s LOST IN SPACE Told Us About Bringing Back the Beloved Series

Poor Will Robinson might be in danger once again, but Netflix‘s upcoming Lost in Space reboot is good news for the rest us. And with the show premiering later this week we wanted to hear all about it from the show’s stars, so they found their way to the studio today to tell us about why the series’ themes are universal, why their characters might butt heads, and the hidden secret to understanding Parker Posey, on a very special, spoiler-free sci-fi edition of Nerdist News Talks Back.

Guest host Amy Vorpahl and Nerdist News writer Aliza Pearl welcomed Lost in Space stars Taylor Russell and Ignacio Serricchio (Judy Robinson and Don West) to today’s show to tell us what we can expect from the series. They discuss what ways it’s similar to the beloved ’60s series and the ’90s movie, even though they are “much different to the show” they’re creating now. The normalized, equal roles women have in this reboot definitely set it apart.

When it comes to their characters Judy Robinson and Don West, they have thoughts about each others’ roles. how did they describe each others’ roles? Serricchio says Judy is a “hardhead,” while Russell thinks Don might not be quite as hard a nut to crack as he thinks he is. And behind the scenes, Serricchio had a “bromance” with fellow space traveler and Robinson family dad Toby Stephens.

Speaking of costars, we had to ask about what it was like to work with one of our favorites, Parker Posey. But that doesn’t mean we expected to hear the key (and confirmed by Posey no less!) to completely understanding someone who they described as being “like no other person on this planet.”
