The First: Cancelled After One Season At Hulu

Media outlets are reporting that Hulu has cancelled drama series The First after one season.

 

The First follows the first human mission to Mars, while exploring the challenges of taking the first steps toward interplanetary colonisation. The story focuses not only on the astronauts, but also on their families and loved ones, as well as the ground team on Earth.

 

Written by Beau Willimon, who executive produced the series with his producing partner Jordan Tappis, has this to say about the series when it was originally picked up by Hulu:

It’s a story about the human spirit. About our indomitable need to reach for unknown horizons. About people working toward the greatest pioneering achievement in human history. And about the cost of that vision, the danger and sacrifice – emotional, psychological, and physical – that’s required to achieve it. How ordinary, imperfect people band together and overcome a myriad of obstacles to grasp the extraordinary.

 

The First stars Sean Penn, Natascha McElhone, LisaGay Hamilton, Hannah Ware, Keiko Agena, Rey Lucas, James Ransone, Anna Jacoby-Heron, Brian Lee Franklin, Oded Fehr, Norbert Leo Butz, Annie Parisse, Melissa George, Jeannie Berlin and Bill Camp.
