Netflix has given us the first look at Lost in Space, the modern-day reboot of Irwin Allen's classic 1965 sci-fi series, which follows the pioneering space-colonists Robinson family, who find themselves in unknown alien territory after their spaceship veers off-course in a space-time incident. The project's first season will debut on April 13 in its entirety, Netflix revealed today. According to the streaming service, the series takes place 30 years in the future, where colonization in space is now a reality, with the Robinson family serving as pioneers in that effort. Alongside Stephens, Molly Parker plays engineer Maureen Robinson, and Parker Posey appears as charismatic Dr. Smith. Since then the property has remained dormant and the new TV series is the first new development in some time.

They tried reviving Lost in Space at NBC as a TV movie, but the project fell through when original co-star Jonathan Harris died. So, while the Robinsons are in for a perilous journey ahead, it seems as though filming on the the new show went a bit smoother.

However, we do get a sense of the tone of the new Lost in Space and, if this teaser is any indication, it will be a lot more grounded than the original. Stranded alongside two strangers, everyone is forced to work together in order to survive in this alien and potentially unsafe new environment. After all, with the amount of television coming in the next few months, who remembered Lost in Space was even on the books?

Fans of the original "Lost in Space" will notice the extreme difference in robot voices.

Actress Parker Posey will play the new version of the nefarious Dr. Smith, with Ignacio Serricchio, Taylor Russell, Mina Sundwall, and Maxwell Jenkins rounding out the cast.

The Robinson family, part of a highly trained mission to establish a new COLONY in space, is unexpectedly pulled off course forcing them to crash land on a lost planet.
