The classic '60s sci-fi series "Lost in Space" is getting rebooted for a new generation, courtesy of Netflix. And the streaming company has unveiled the first teaser, which offers the first peek at the all-new Robinson family and also a quick sampling of a more low-pitched, computerized-sounding "Danger Will Robinson!" which is the iconic catch-phrase said by the B9 Robot, who is yet to be seen in this new Netflix rendition.

Initially created as the space-age version of "The Swiss Family Robinson" by legendary television producer/filmmaker Irwin Allen (Land of the Giants, The Poseidon Adventure), "Lost in Space" is set 30 years in the future and follows a space-faring family as they attempt to colonize a planet, only to be knocked off course and forced to crash-land on an unknown world light years from their intended destination.

The cast of the new Netflix series is led by Toby Stephens (Black Sails) and Molly Parker (Deadwood) as John and Maureen Robinson. Maxwell Jenkins (Sense8) is playing Will, the youngest Robinson child, while Taylor Russell (Falling Skies) and Mina Sundwall (#Horror) are playing Will's sisters.

In a gender switch, Parker Posey (Waiting for Guffman, Superman Returns) is taking on the iconic role of the untrustworthy and conniving Dr. Smith -- a villain character who in the original series was played by legendary character actor Jonathan Harris and by Gary Oldman in the 1998 film reboot. Rounding out the cast are Ignacio Serricchio (Bones, The Young and the Restless) and Raza Jaffrey (Homeland, Code Black).

Executive produced and written by the screenwriting team of Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (Dracula Untold, The Last Witch Hunter, Gods of Egypt) with "Game of Thrones" director Neil Marshall directing several episodes, "Lost in Space" will debut on Friday, April 13th on Netflix.

synopsis:
Set 30 years in the future, colonization in space is now a reality, and the Robinson family (Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Maxwell Jenkins, Taylor Russell, Mina Sundwall) is among those tested and selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. But when the new colonists find themselves abruptly torn off course en route to their new home they must forge new alliances and work together to survive in a dangerous alien environment, light-years from their original destination. Stranded along with the Robinsons are two outsiders who find themselves thrown together by circumstance and a mutual knack for deception. The unsettlingly charismatic Dr. Smith (Parker Posey) is a master manipulator with an inscrutable end game. And the roguish, but inadvertently charming Don West (Ignacio Serricchio) is a highly-skilled, blue-collar contractor, who had no intention of joining the colony, let alone crash landing on a lost planet.
