Netflix has signed a deal for the rights to a reboot of 1960s sci-fi series 'Lost in Space', according to Deadline.

The new series is described as an "epic but grounded science fiction saga" that focuses on a "young explorer family from earth lost in an alien universe and the challenges they face in staying together against seemingly insurmountable odds". Which is pretty much the same as the original concept.

The reboot will be written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless ('Dracula Untold') and directed by Neil Marshall.

Executive producer Kevin Burns has reportedly wanted to reboot the series for years. His first attempt fell by the wayside following the death of original co-star Jonathan Harris.

The original series aired for three seasons, comprising 83 episodes. It celebrated its 50th anniversary in September.

In 1998, it was made into a feature film starring Matt LeBlanc (Joey from 'Friends').
