‘Lost in Space’ Season 3, which is also the final season of the Netflix sci-fi series has officially wrapped up filming in Vancouver today. The series creator/writer Zack Estrin announced the news on Instagram today, "A wrap on our final two cast members. Fitting to end it where it all began." Now, the show will go into post-production for the final time and re-shoots, if required.
Season 3 began filming on September 7, 2020, with all the COVID-19 precautions and guidelines in place and it continued without any hurdles or any disease outbreak. Since it was the final season, the cast was a bit emotional while saying goodbyes to each other as they have all reached the end.
In an emotional message bidding farewell to the cast, the series leading star Maxwell Jenkins who plays Will Robinson said, "That’s a wrap on Lost in Space, Well here we are. The final episode of the final season of Lost in Space is in the can and I have hung up my space suit for the last time. I’m not saying goodbye to Will Robinson because he will always be a part of me. This experience has changed my life for the better.
Thank you to every single person who helped make seasons 1, 2, and now 3 possible. To Zack Estrin and all of the writers and producers who made epic adventures and special moments that we were lucky to experience- You gave this public school kid from Chicago a real shot and I will be forever grateful.
And now...this is Will Robinson of the 24th colonist group signing off...for now."

Zack Estrin also commended the contribution of Jenkins and sharing an image of Will and the Robot, said, "With these two. Robot and Will Robinson. This is not from the final episode, but I love this image because it matches the frame of when they first met. You can really see how much @maxwelljenkins has grown since the pilot when The Robot towered over him. But Max hasn’t just grown in height, He’s grown as an actor. And as a person. And I couldn’t be more proud to know him and his family. Good kids don’t just happen. Especially in this business. But that’s exactly what Max is. He represents the best of the ideals of Lost In Space — Believing in the impossible, fighting for what’s right, and sticking up for those less fortunate. A true Robinson. A true friend. Lucky to have him in our cast. Even luckier to have him in our lives."
Earlier, Mina Sundwall also completed her part as Penny Robinson and she also left an emotional farewell message which said, "On January 8th, 2017, a 15-year old New Yorker stepped on a plane to head to Vancouver and take on an endeavor that would lead her not only to space but to an entirely new second family that would change her life in ways she couldn’t imagine. Then, four years later, that second family is by her side (masks and all) the day this crazy adventure comes to a close. And she couldn’t be more grateful.
Last night, I finished my work on #LostinSpace. This show has been the highlight of my life for the last four years; from waterfall drops to master plans, from chickens to robots, from first kisses to last goodbyes, and every moment in between. There hasn’t been a single day where I haven’t been over-the-moon thrilled to come to work (pun intended). Penny will always be a deeply special part of my life.
Thank you, Zack Estrin, our fearless leader, and all of our writers, for this journey. The nervous girl who stepped into that audition room and fell in love with Penny Robinson is very proud right now…. although, I’ll have to admit, very sad.
To our crew, I love every one of you. I will miss you tremendously and cannot wait to see you soon. I have admired everyone’s dedication and love for this story for the last 3 seasons, and wouldn’t rather spend this crazy year anywhere else. And to my unofficial crew, my parents, thank you for hopping on this ride with me- and making sure I kept all arms and legs inside the vehicle.
To everyone who watches our show, you’re in for a real ride this season. And I can’t wait for you to see what we’ve been cooking up. Here’s to one more chapter. Penny Robinson signing off."
The show cast has been completing their part for the past 2 weeks one by one and bidding farewell to the Netflix sci-fi series, Toby Stephens who plays John Robinson said goodbye to the Lost in Space family before the Christmas holidays. "Me and my shadow. Last day on LostInSpace. What a trip it’s been. I will miss my fictional family and all the incredible cast, crew, and Production team who made this show such a special project to be a part of," said Stephens.
Since season 3 has just completed the filming, we do not have much info on the exact premiere date, but seeing the current timeline, season 3 is likely to premiere in Summer 2021 (July-August, 2021).
Season 2 of the series ended up in a cliffhanger, the children of the Resolute failed to reach Alpha Centauri and were "Lost in Space" once again. The Robinson parents and Don West have no idea how to catch up or where their kids actually are. Dr. Smith seemingly sacrifices her life to fix the magnetic field in the airlock that holds the robots, but which also crushes her spacesuit.
"Lost in Space" is created by Irwin Allen, Matt Sazama, and Burk Sharpless. Molly Parker, Toby Stephens, Maxwell Jenkins, Taylor Russell, Mina Sundwall, Ignacio Serricchio, and Parker Posey will return for season 3 in their respective roles.
