Deadline is reporting that Netflix has identified Toby Stephens to helm the ship and lead the Robinsons as dad John Robinson in the reboot of Lost in Space. Stephens will be joined on the intergalactic tour by Max Jenkins as Will Robinson, the family’s youngest child. Taylor Russell, best known for her work on Falling Skies, has been previously announced to star as Judy Robinson, the eldest daughter.
Stephens is no stranger to heading a vessel. He’s spent four seasons as Captain Flint on the Emmy-winning pirate series Black Sails.
Lost in Space is slated to debut in 2018. No word yet on who they plan to cast as Dr. Smith or that Hopeless Heap of Tainted Tin robot.
