Watch this weekend: ‘Lost in Space,’ ‘Fear the Walking Dead,’ catch up on ‘Westworld’

Danger, Will Robinson: Lost in Space

Don't write off the new Lost in Space as just another science fiction reboot. Few things in this reimagining are the same as the 1960s original. Lost in Space is set 30 years in the future, when space colonization is now a reality. The Robinson family (Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Taylor Russell, Mina Sundwall, Maxwell Jenkins) is a team of highly intelligent and talented colonizers selected to make a better life for themselves on another planet. But a major attack throws their Jupiter 2 ship off course, making the family genuinely lost in space and light-years from their original destination. The series also has its Dr. Smith in Parker Posey, but this villain is wildly different than the original — and more subtly sinister. And the iconic Robot is less a kitschy tin can and more eerie extraterrestrial. Don't worry, he still says "Danger, Will Robinson" whenever Will is in, well, danger. Now available on Netflix.

Zombies are still here: Fear the Walking Dead

Not only is The Walking Dead still airing new episodes, but its spinoff series, Fear the Walking Dead, is heading into a fourth season. The series started in Southern California at the outset of the zombie outbreak, then wound its way through a sea voyage, Mexico and a hotel. The surviving group (Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey and Colman Domingo, among others) is doing just that — trying to survive — in a post-apocalyptic world. The series has basically turned into The Walking Dead 2.0, and this season even gets a crossover character in Lennie James' Morgan. And by this time, Morgan has plenty of walking-fighting experience under his belt. 9 p.m. Sunday, AMC.

Catch up

Westworld: The science fiction series started off strange, but got even stranger through 10 wild episodes. Based on the 1973 film from Michael Crichton, Westworld followed the employees and guests of a futuristic theme park inhabited by humanlike artificial intelligence. And then the robots started to gain sentience. Westworld was one of the most talked-about shows of 2016, so catch up on HBO Go and HBO Now before the new season premieres on April 22.

The 100: For the past four seasons, the characters in the CW's dystopian hit The 100 have fought to survive against impossible odds. Nearly 100 years after nuclear fallout ruined Earth, a surviving colony in space sends down 100 teenage criminals to see if the planet is livable. The show has since evolved beyond dystopian YA and into a thrilling science fiction adventure. The fifth season premieres next week, but catch up with the series on Netflix.
