Legendary Television Celebrates ‘Lost in Space’ at SDCC

In the midst of Lost in Space‘s rapid success, fans shared an…interesting observation as they binge-watched the rebooted science fiction series. While many viewers crushed on John Robinson (Toby Stephens) in full Hot Dad mode and roguish yet charming Don West (Ignacio Serricchio), a certain subset of the internet found themselves looking elsewhere. This version of Robot is a far cry from its campy, lovable origins in the 1960s Lost in Space series, and fans quickly took note of his rather muscular, toned features.

After the fans’ collective thirst for Robot was made known to Netflix’s official Twitter account, Netflix decided to play along. They really weren’t expecting this kind of reaction to their robot friend.

But now that internet crush is inspiring Lost in Space‘s appearance at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Legendary Television, which produces the re-imagined space adventure series, is offering fans an experience they won’t want to miss. Celebrating the success of Lost in Space, they’ll host two special events featuring the attractive robot.

Every day throughout the duration of SDCC, Legendary Television in partnership with Legendary Digital Network’s Nerdist, will offer “Robo Romance,” a photo installation with Robot. This is open to all fans, completely free.

Located at the Nerdist House at Sparks Gallery, participants can customize the setting of their photo meet up with “Robot,” including a special romantic background for enamored fans. Free Lost in Space giveaways will also be offered daily.

Their second event is invite-only, but sounds awesome if you manage to snag one.

On Friday, July 20 from 10:00pm – 1:00am, Legendary Television is hosting “Robo Rhythm,” an invite-only intergalactic dance party at the Oxford Social Club. Guests are invited to enjoy cocktails at the open bar featuring Don West smuggled booze, while dancing to a one-night-only special guest DJ set by “Robot.”

Lost in Space is currently in pre-production on their second season, which is set to begin filming in the fall.
