      There's good news for Netflix viewers, science-fiction fans, and the local film industry.

      Netflix announced on April 14 that it has renewed its new adventure-drama series Lost in Space for a second season. A season premiere date hasn't been announced yet.

      Season 1 of the show was shot in Metro Vancouver and other locations in B.C. from January 23 to June 26 in 2017, and it debuted on Netflix on April 13.

      As a remake of the classic TV series of the same name that ran from 1965 to 1968, the story is set 30 years in the future in an era when humans are attempting to colonize space. One family, the Robinsons, discover they've travelled wildly off course on their way to their new home in space, and are consequently forced to survive on an unknown, dangerous planet.

      Vancouver's own Molly Parker stars Maureen Robinson, an aerospace engineer and mother of the family.

      The cast also includes Toby Stephens, Maxwell Jenkins, Mina Sundwall, Taylor Russell, Ignacio Serricchio, and Parker Posey.

      Taking advantage of Metro Vancouver's geographic diversity, locations in and around the city and province that were used for shooting Season 1 included North Vancouver's Lower Seymour Conservation Forest and Lynn Canyon Park, Mount Garibaldi, Squamish, Manning Park, and near Cache Creek.
