“Love and hope will always remain my ‘North Star.’ It was an incredible journey my compadres,” Swank said on Instagram. “And thank you to all my extraordinary followers who watched and supported our beautiful show. Wish we were showing you Mars. Until the next one.”
Swank starred in the series as Emma Green, a NASA astronaut who led the first astronaut expedition to Mars. The show also starred Josh Charles, Vivian Wu, and Mark Ivanir, among others.
“Away” premiered on Netflix on September 4. The show received mixed reviews from critics, including IndieWire’s Ben Travers, who, despite praising its polished look, referred to “Away” as a “stock family drama” that failed to capitalize on its sci-fi elements in his grade C review.
