LOS ANGELES, Nov. 23 (UPI) -- Parker Posey has signed on to star in Netflix's upcoming reboot of the classic sci-fi series, Lost in Space.
Netflix's take will borrow from the original CBS series, which ran for 83 episodes from 1965 to 1968 and follows the Robinson family, stranded in space light years away from their intended destination.
Notably, Dr. Smith is responsible for getting the Robinsons and their crew stranded and was presented as a villain early on in the show before being toned down and made into a more light-hearted character.
Posey joins a cast that includes Molly Parker as Maureen Robinson, Taylor Russell as Judy Robinson and child actor Max Jenkins as Will Robinson.
This is the second Netflix project for Posey. She appeared in the streaming network's comedy film Mascots that premiered on Oct. 13.
