Posted by at 8:31 am on March 31, 2017

Raza Jaffrey (Code BlackHomeland) has been cast in a recurring role on the upcoming Netflix remake of the 1965 TV series Lost In Space, according to Deadline. The series will premiere in 2018 and will revolve, as it did in the original, around the Robinson family. Stranded light years from their intended destination, they find themselves battling a strange new alien environment and also their own personal demons.

Jaffrey will play Victor. “Well groomed, educated and officious, with a sense of entitlement, Victor has been a career builder and politician from a young age. There is arrogance and impatience about him. All this masks the underlying fear that he’ll one day be found out — that he isn’t quite good enough.”

The new series is being reimagined by the feature writing team of Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (Dracula Untold, Last Witch Hunter), with Zack Estrin (Prison Break) showrunning. The plan is for the new Lost in Space to take its cues from the original series. Equal parts family drama and sci-fi adventure, the new Lost in Space is officially described as being “a survival story for the ages.”

Raza Jaffrey is known for his work on the CBS series Code Black, NBC’s Smash and season 4 of Homeland. He’ll join Toby Stephens (Black Sails) who plays John Robinson, Molly Parker (Deadwood) who plays Maureen Robinson, Taylor Russell (Down a Dark Hall) who plays Judy Robinson, Mina Sundwall (Freeheld) who plays Penny Robinson and Max Jenkins (Sense8) who plays Will Robinson. Parker Posey (Superman Returns) will also appear.
