While Season 1 of Lost in Space was a smash success, many critics felt like Season 2 wasn’t daring enough and, for the most part, the show’s renewal was defined mostly as “passable” with the program offering audiences “more of the same” and not taking enough creative risks. Some even said the show “wasted its potential” and made narrative decisions that were a bit too comfortable.
Critical jeers regarding familiarity don’t dictate the future of a show, however. Law and Order, NCIS, and House follow(ed) the same rubric episode after episode, and those three programs, along with tons of other examples of “cookie cutter” TV were either renewed for tons of seasons or are still on the air.
But what about Lost in Space: Is the Robinson family in for more adventures?
