A novel that was based on Lost in Space 2 may have caused the release date to be pushed back on Netflix. We’ve got all you need to know below.
Lost in Space, a Netflix science-fi series for families is based on the original 60s show. In April 2018, Netflix released the first season. Since then, we’ve known bits and pieces about season 2 of Lost in Space but no concrete release date.
Given the size of the series, it was impossible for the series to maintain an annual schedule. If these release date of November 2019 is true, that would’ve been roughly a year and six-month wait. That’s a wait we’ve seen for other hit Netflix shows like Mindhunter, Stranger Things and others.
That’s until today when some keen eyes spotted a new novel coming out for the series. It’s not the first accidental release window announced this month either. Last week, Mindhunter Season 2 was announced by Netflix's executive producer.
The novel which has simply been titled “Novel #1” at present with non-final artwork display. But it’s accompanied by the following description:
“While on a colonization mission in the not too distant future, a crisis maroons the Robinson family on an alien planet where they must band together to survive. This action-packed, middle-grade novel is the first in a series that focuses on 11-year-old Will Robinson and his two older sisters, Judy and Penny.”
Following that it says: “Timed to coincide with the debut of season 2, this novel is based on Netflix’s Lost in Space: a dramatic, modern reimagining of the classic 1960’s science fiction series.”
Last updated on May 20, 2019: Amazon has removed the description listing that included the release date. TheHashTagShow reached out to Netflix and got the following response: “the release date of the book is not reflective of the release date for season 2, which has not yet been set, nor announced.”
