DANGER, Will Robinson!

Space explorers the Robinson family are back with streaming site Netflix announcing a reboot of the much-loved classic science-fiction television series Lost In Space.

Like the 1960s original, the new series again focuses on the travails of the Robinson family after their mission to colonize space is thrown wildly off course.

"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," Netflix wrote in a short description of the new series.

In the teaser for the new series, the Robinson family can be seen walking towards their ship, the Jupiter 2, while a female's voice explains the importance of their mission - to rendezvous with the colony in the Alpha Centauri system.

However, the looming disaster of their trip is evident when the youngest family member, Will, aguishly faces the camera as the ship's door closes followed by the famous robotic warning: "Danger Will Robinson!".

The new series will star Molly Parker (Marueen), Toby Stephens (Dr Robinson), Taylor Russell (Judy), Mina Sundwall (Penny), Max Jenkins (Will) while Ignacio Serricchio plays Don West, the Jupiter 2's brash pilot.

However, in a major difference from the original series, actress Parker Posey will play antagonist Dr. Smith.

'Lost In Space' will air on Netflix on April 13.
