Fans are surprised to know that science fiction drama away is canceled after the first season. They want to know more about what happened as the first season released last year in September. The first season had mixed reviews from the viewers as well as critics. Maybe this was one of the reasons why the makers decided to cancel it. There are some positive aspects in the series but wasn’t enough to renew it again. If you want to know more about what happened read on below:
What is the plot of Away?
There are many science fiction shows coming out on Netflix these days but Away is a little different. It features a storyline that blends well with the current affairs and investigations. All the investigations are related to astral sciences. There is a global crew who is making efforts to go to mars and join the initiative. The team is led by many people and they want to complete the mission at all costs. While they will be on the trip to Mars they will have to stay away from the families which will seem really difficult to handle.
The cast of the show is quite good and all the actors have done their job pretty well. The cast is mainly led by Emma Green and Hilary Swank has played her part very well. There is a Chinese chemist, a British botanist, an Indian second-in-command officer, and a Russian cosmonaut in the Mars Joint team. With the second season canceled by Netflix, it doesn’t seem any other platform will be taking it.
Why did Netflix cancel season two of Away?
Many viewers believe that even though ‘Away’ was a science fiction series it never really focused on this topic. The show only revolves around the character of Hilary Swank and her family which isn’t enough for success. She has a husband who is an astronaut and they live together with a teenage daughter. If the show had stayed true to its script it could probably do well. When the first season of away was released on Netflix it became one of the top-rated dramas on Netflix.
It couldn’t hold the same popularity and maybe that is why Netflix didn’t renew it for a second season. The cost of production for this show was higher than usual and the makers couldn’t cover them. Many other viewers also believe that coronavirus could possibly be another reason why the show was canceled. Due to economical pressures, many production houses aren’t willing to work in the pandemic season.
Who is in the cast of Away?
Despite all the other things the cast of Away has done a wonderful job. They are very convincing in their characters and everyone will connect with them. It is just that the story of the series could depend a lot more on scientific issues. The direction of the show is also good and you will love to watch it. Here is the cast list below:
- Hilary Swank
- Josh Charles
- Tabitha Bateman
- Vivian Wu
- Mark Ivanir
- Ato Essandoh
