Are the Robinsons finally coming home? Netflix Canada's Lost in Space got renewed for a third season, but that will be it's last. The series even has a couple of ties to Canada!

The sci-fi program first premiered in April 2018 and is based on the 1965 series of the same name. 

According to Deadline, season one earned "3.16 million viewers overall on its first day of release, Netflix’s third-best premiere-day viewership of the year behind Season 2 of Stranger Things and movie Bright."

The series follows members of the Robinson family who get stranded on an alien planet and are left to fight against dangers and the unknown. 

Deadline writes that season three will focus on "the conclusion of the Robinson family’s epic space journey towards Alpha Centauri."

Showrunner Zack Estrin took to Twitter to share news of the series finale. In part of the lengthy message, he wrote, "From the beginning, we've always viewed this particular story of The Robinsons as a trilogy. A three-part epic family adventure with a clear beginning, middle and end."

Estrin continued, "So while this chapter of Lost in Space is coming to a rousing conclusion, I'm excited about continuing to explore new stories with my friends at Netflix, and for all of the incredible possibilities that lie ahead."

Deadline claims that Estrin "has signed a multi-year overall deal to produce new series exclusively for the streamer" so his journey with Netflix is far from over.

The past two seasons have been filmed in a variety of locations including in B.C., IMDb notes. Areas like Vancouver, Burnaby, Kamloops, and Squamish are all listed as filming locations. They even ventured out to Drumheller, Alberta as well as various places in Iceland for season two, which dropped in December 2019.
