Netflix has revealed that the remake of classic 1960s sci-fi Lost in Space will be released on Friday 13th April.
The – hopefully auspicious – release date will see Toby Stephens star as John Robinson, a man who must try lead his family to safety after they are stranded on an alien world light years from their destination.
While us poor folk here on Earth will have to wait until April to watch the series, the crew of the International Space Station have already started bingeing – Netflix provided Nasa with the first episode to stream in space.
