The biggest new releases coming to Netflix, Stan, hayu and Foxtel this week

One of the most iconic sci-fi series of all time makes its return in this week's line-up of streaming TV.

It seems the streaming world is taking a breather this week, dialling back the onslaught of big new releases that has been the norm for the last month or so.

The most notable addition comes by way of Netflix in the form of Lost In Space, a reboot of the classic 1965 sci-fi TV show that gave birth to that iconic catch phrase "Danger Will Robinson!". Like the original, the series follows the space-faring Robinson family after their ship is knocked off course, stranding them on an unknown planet ripe with threats both alien and human. Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are the minds behind this remake, a pair you may know from their work on The Last Witch Hunter and Gods of Egypt.

Over on Stan, this week's biggest new arrival is the first season of The Wrong Girl, the Australian-made drama series based on a similarly-titled book from Zoë Foster Blake. It stars Jessica Marais of Packed To The Rafters fame as Lily Woodward, a morning show producer juggling the demands of her high-pressure career, her complicated friendships and a desire to find someone she can spend the rest of her life with.

It's relatively quiet on the Foxtel front this week, too, with the only standout release being the debut of Sell It Like Serhant. In this reality TV show, US real estate agent Ryan Serhant travels America helping out salespeople from a variety of industries, lending his experience as a successful seller to those struggling to cinch the deal.

Take a look at the highlights of this week's new streaming releases below. For a complete schedule of upcoming programming, check out our list of everything coming to Aussie streaming services in April.
