Netflix’s Lost in Space is coming to an end.

The news broke on Monday afternoon that the streaming service has renewed the sci-fi series for a third season. This new batch of episodes, however, will serve as the show’s final season.

Almost an hour after the news was announced, showrunner Zack Estrin released a statement, revealing that Lost in Space has always been meant as a trilogy, so Netflix didn’t technically cancel the series.

“From the beginning, we’ve always viewed this particular story of The Robinsons as a trilogy,” Estrin said. “A three-part epic family adventure with a clear beginning, middle and end. It’s also worth noting that, with what these characters go through just trying to survive each episode — if anyone deserves to catch their breath before their next mission — it’s Will (Maxwell Jenkins), Penny (Mina Sundwall), Judy (Taylor Russell), Maureen (Molly Parker), John (Toby Stephens), Don West (Ignacio Serricchio), Dr. Smith (Parkey Posey)… and The Robot (Brian Steele). And, of course, Debbie the Chicken.”

Despite Estrin’s explanation, the fact that the show is ending has left fans devastated, with a lot of them still don’t understand why it has to conclude so soon.

Some fans, meanwhile, are apparently not buying the story that Lost in Space is just meant to be told for three seasons.

Though the majority of the fans are sad to see the show go, several of them are thankful that it, at least, gets to finish its story.

Season 3 of Lost in Space will arrive on Netflix sometime in 2021. It’s currently not clear how many episodes will be in Season 3, but since the first two have 10 episodes each, it’s likely that the final season will have the same episode count.

Though Lost in Space is ending, Estrin isn’t really bidding goodbye to Netflix, as the streamer has recently signed him to a multi-year overall deal. “While this chapter of Lost in Space is coming to a rousing conclusion, I’m excited about continuing to explore new stories with my friends at Netflix, and for all of the incredible possibilities that lie ahead,” read the latter portion of Estrin’s statement.
