Away: Cancelled by Netflix

The Hilary Swank starring series, Away, has been cancelled by Netflix, as a result there won’t be a second season of the series.

Created by Andrew Hinderaker, Away is set in the near future and revolves around a manned spacecraft being sent to Mars. For the high-stakes three year mission mission, a crew of elite astronauts is assembled from around the globe. During this time, their relationships both on Earth and in space will be tested, as they struggle to stay alive and stay on track in pursuit of humanity’s most important goal.

The first season of 10 episodes was released on September 4th. The series was reportedly one of Netflix’s most-watched series for much of September. Apparently, that viewership wasn’t good enough, when weighed against production costs, for the streamer to issue a renewal.
