Netflix has pulled the plug on the space drama series Away, starring Oscar victor Hilary Swank, about six weeks after the show's debut.

Per its official logline, the show followed American astronaut Emma Green (Swank) as she "prepares to lead an global crew on the first mission to Mars, she must reconcile her decision to leave behind her husband (Charles) and teenage daughter (Bateman) when they need her the most". The cancellation comes simply six weeks after the present's first season was launched on September 4. Tension rises when some members of the crew question Green's leadership.

It subsequently spent several weeks in the top 10 of streaming shows.
