Netflix did not explain the reason for the cancellation. However, according to Esquire, there are several possible explanations for Netflix's actions. The first is the cost of producing the show.

According to MensHealth, Netflix spent more than $6 million per episode, making it one of the most expensive shows produced by the streaming provider.

The second theory is that Netflix cancelled the sequel due to the coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic posed a logistical challenge for the television and film crew.

According to her, the new season may involve private sectors in the Mars space race. Goldberg mentioned bringing in SpaceX or a fictitious private technological company.

Furthermore, because the first season ends with the crew landing on Mars, there is still a 14-month mission ahead of them. In addition, the crew may investigate the possibility of encountering life on Mars.

Jessica Goldberg said this about the situation when she spoke with Inverse.

When I say life, I mean something like a microorganism, I'm not talking about an alien; the show would never go there.

Who is the likely cast of Away Season 2?

Because the show has already been cancelled, the chances of the main cast returning are slim. However, if you watched the show and were curious about the cast, their names are listed below:

  • Hilary Swank as Emma Green
  • Josh Charles as Matt Logan
  • Vivian Wu as Lu W*ng
  • Mark Ivanir as Misha
