Parker Posey has joined the cast of Lost In Space, Netflix’s remake of sci-fi master Irwin Allen’s 1965 cult TV classic, from Legendary TV.

Slated for a 2018 premiere, the new Lost In Space takes its cues from the original CBS series, revolving around the Robinson family, which is forced to come together in a time of crisis. Stranded light years from their intended destination, the Robinsons find themselves battling a strange new alien environment and their own personal demons. Posey will play Dr. Smith, a female version of the character played in the original series by Jonathan Harris.

Posey’s recent credits include features Mascot for Christopher Guest and Netflix and Columbus for writer-director Kogonada. She was seen this past summer in Woody Allen’s Café Society. Posey is repped by Gersh, and Authentic Talent and Literary Management.
