Lost in Space
If you're a fan from yesteryear of the sci-fi series Lost in Space, you might have some new episodes to look forward to. If it's done right.
Word on the street is that Netflix is revamping the show, ordering a 10-episode season from Legendary TV. It is set to premiere in 2018 sometime.
It seems like they will try to model the new show after the original, where it touched on both drama and comedic aspects of being stuck out in space with no way home.

Houdini and Doyle
People keep wondering if there will be a second season of the insightful and intelligent series, Houdini and Doyle? Don't know yet is the quick answer.
Inspired by true events, the series follows two great men of the 20th Century and real-life friends – HARRY HOUDINI (Weston), master magician, escape artist and paranormal debunker; and SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE (Mangan), prolific writer, creator of “Sherlock Holmes” and paranormal aficionado. They grudgingly join forces with New Scotland Yard to investigate unsolved, inexplicable and possibly supernatural crimes, alongside the first female Constable of the London Metropolitan Police Force, ADELAIDE STRATTON (Rebecca Liddiard, “Man Seeking Woman”).
The show is a British-Canadian-American production, originally airing on ITV in the UK, then aired on Fox in the U.S..
Fans have been asking, as one reader asked me, if it will be coming back for a second season. Her presumption was no because it was a great series and she liked it. Sigh. And to date, there's been no news on whether ITV has or will be ordering a second season or not.
Here in the U.S., it premiered to just over 2.6M viewers, but as the season wore on, over on Fox, the ratings have drooped to just around 1.75M viewers.
