Streaming Service: Netflix
No. of Season: 1
Sci-fi drama Away was one of Netflix’s most-watch series for much of September. That viewership, however, was apparently not good enough when weighed against production costs, so the streamer opted not to renew the series for a second season.
Created by Andrew Hinderaker, the 10-episode first season of Away is set in the near future and revolves around the first crewed expedition to Mars that features an international crew. It stars Hilary Swank as Emma Green, the commander of the mission. However, several crew members do not trust Emma’s ability to lead the team because of her poor response to a crisis situation at the very beginning of the mission.
