Netflix has opted against a second season of sci-fi drama “Away,” which featured Oscar winner Hilary Swank as an astronaut leading a Mars mission who must reconcile her decision to leave behind her husband (Josh Charles) and teenage daughter (Talitha Bateman) when they need her the most. As the crew’s journey into space intensifies, their personal dynamics and the effects of being away from their loved ones back on Earth become increasingly complex. Season 1, which featured 10 episodes, concluded with Commander Green and her crew safely landing on Mars.
Andrew Hinderaker created “Away: and executive produced with showrunner Jessica Goldberg, Jason Katims, Matt Reeves, Edward Zwick, Swank, Adam Kassan and Jeni Mulein.
“Away” is the latest one season casualty at Netflix, joining the likes of “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance,” “Soundtrack” and “Messiah,” along with “I Am Not Okay With This” and “The Society” – both of which had their renewals reversed because of COVID-19 concerns.
