Before You Dive Into the Lost in Space Reboot, Check Out the Original Cast
Another week, another reboot — this time a reimagining of the 1960s CBS sci-fi series Lost in Space.
The first series ran for three seasons from 1965 to 1968 and was then abruptly canceled, leaving the original Robinson family and co. hopelessly lost . . . in space. But if you're curious about the original cast members before you dive into the reboot, we're here with a handy guide to the initial series.
Fun fact: the series is futuristic in nature, as the Robinson family leaves Earth to explore a planet with similar conditions and find out if it can support human life. The "future" for the original series? 1997. Ha. And another fun fact is that the guest stars on the original series included Joe E. Tata (Nat on Beverly Hills, 90201) and a young Kurt Russell.
