Season 3 of Lost in Space is currently in post-production, as Netflix prepares to release the third and final season of the series. Here’s an update on everything we know so far about Lost in Space Season 3, including where it is in production, what we can expect, and who’s ready to appear. .
The Excellent Sci-Fi Series is a reboot of the original television series that aired in the 1960s, and the film that followed in the late 1990s. It is an underrated science fiction gem , which often loses its notoriety in favor of series like Stranger Things.
The second season of the series was released on Christmas Eve 2019.
Read on for the most comprehensive rundown of everything we know about Season 3 of Lost in space.
Has Lost in Space season 3 been renewed?
Official renewal status: Renewed in March 2020
After three months of waiting, Netflix’s NX on Netflix account as well as the series’ official Twitter confirmed the return of the sci-fi series.
However, the news of a third season has also been accompanied by the news that the third season will end the story and be the last entry.

Understandably, this displeased many fans of the series, but in the end, it’s good that the series draws a full conclusion instead of being left on a cliffhanger.
Some small petitions have popped up asking Netflix for more seasons, but it’s probably a done deal.
In one declaration, Zack Estrin (the showrunner of Lost in space) addressed the news from the last season by saying the following:
“From the start, we’ve always looked at this particular Robinsons story as a trilogy. An epic 3-part family adventure with a clear start, middle and end. It’s also worth noting that with what these characters go through trying to survive each episode – if anyone deserves to catch their breath before their next mission – it’s Will, Penny, Judy, Maureen, John, Don West. , Dr. Smith… and The Robot. And, of course, Debbie the Chicken. While this chapter of Lost in space comes to a rousing conclusion, I’m excited to continue exploring new stories with my friends at Netflix, and for all the incredible possibilities that lie ahead.
Where is the production of Season 3 of Lost in Space?
Current production status: pre-production (last update: 06/25/2020)
The series is awaiting the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions to begin filming.
In June 2020, we found out that the plan for now (assuming productions aren’t shutting down again) is that the series should start filming in September 2020 and end in January 2020.
Filming for Season 3 will once again take place in a whole new location. As you may know, Season 1 was shot in Vancouver while Season 2 was shot in Iceland. According to our source, Burnaby, British Columbia (Canada) will be the filming location for Season 3.
In September 2020, we received the first signs of life indicating that Season 3 is back in production. Filming is not expected to start until September 9, 2020, and will end on January 14, 2021, according to our source.
NX on Netflix confirmed on September 26 that it was back in production.

Team members, including Zack Estrin, have already started showing up on set, who are taking strict precautions on set due to COVID-19.
Throughout filming, Zack Estrin, in particular, has been active on social media, sharing behind-the-scenes photos.
Then, on January 12, 2021, NX on Netflix and Zack confirmed the end of filming for season 3.

After the wrap announcement, we saw several updates mostly via Zack Estrin’s Instagram page. He shared in late April that Mina Sundwall had seen various clips from the new season.
At the end of May 2021, Zack Estrin shared some progress with Lost in Space season 3 informing us that they are currently mixing the first episode of Season 3 with a caption of “All mixed up.” Ep.301.
When Lost in space season 3 release on Netflix?
So far, only a wide 2021 release date has been confirmed so far.
However, with filming ending in January, we currently don’t expect the final season to be available until at least later in the year.
Our continuing educated guess is that Season 3 of Lost in space hits between late summer and fall 2021.
Notably, the show did not appear in Netflix’s Geeked Week.
What to expect from season 3 of Lost in space & burning questions
Warning: spoilers ahead – watch season 2 before progressing.
Before we get into what we can expect in terms of the story of Season 3, let’s quickly recap the Season 2 finale named “Ninety-Seven”.
Judy, Will and Penny all escaped the invading robot army
One of the biggest cliffhangers remaining from Season 2 is the Jupiter Transport carrying children who come into contact with the Fortuna, the long lost ship mentioned throughout. Lost in space.
Now… can we talk about this s2 cliffhanger? pic.twitter.com/wKFTIWBdel

Bordering fan theories for a second, some have suggested that Grant Kelly may be alive and some have even suggested that Netflix may recruit some of the former cast members to reappear in the final season.
Thanks to the fact that we know the show is changing locations, we can assume that we’ll be on a whole new planet for the duration of Season 3. All we know at this time, however, is that they are in an unknown star system.
Another big question we have left over from Season 2 concerns Dr. Smith. Although it seemed to be over for the character, his body was never found. As smart as she was, we just can’t believe this was her ultimate demise and that we might see a return. We’ll also likely learn of the fate of Maureen and John who were last seen in the robot stack.
