NEW YORK — Season 2 of Netflix's "Lost in Space" promises a whole new set of ambitious, problem-solving ideas from the Robinson family as they navigate a whole new world. The new season premieres on Netflix this Christmas Eve (Dec. 24).

The show has many different elements: spaceflight, sentient robots, wormholes, devious villainy and – perhaps the top-contender for fan favorite of the show – a chicken named Debbie.

Season - Netflix - Space - Months - Season

Season 2, which Netflix calls "Lost in Space 2," starts about seven months after Season 1 ends. The first season began with the Robinson family crash-landing onto an Earth-like planet after the spaceship Resolute experiences a mysterious malfunction. The family includes parents John (Toby Stephens) and Maureen (Molly Parker), plus their children Judy (Taylor Russell), Penny (Mina Sundwall) and Will (Maxwell Jenkins).

Netflix's "Lost in Space 2" premieres on Dec. 24.

Planet - Dilemmas - Robinsons - Alien - Planet

After exploring the planet and getting themselves out of precarious dilemmas, the Robinsons finally get off the alien planet and reach a binary star system after being pulled through what appears to be a warp in spacetime. By solving their problems with their heads and their hearts, the characters charmed their way into the fandom of many people, like those packed into an afternoon panel at the 2019 New York Comic Con on Oct. 5.

Cast members Molly Parker, Maxwell Jenkins, Mina Sundwall, Taylor Russell, Ignacio Serricchio, Parker Posey and executive producer Zack Estrin offered a sneak peek at Season 2 and shared stories from behind the scenes.

Jenkins - Caring - Relationship - Frightening - Robot

Jenkins shared that acting to portray a caring relationship with a frightening but protective robot (an artificially intelligent alien named "Robot" that his character Will discovers at the beginning of the series) reminded him of what it's like to spend time with his four-legged pals at home.
