As the season one of the Away series released just now we are not sure of the release date. It is also very early to expect any news from the creators. So we may have to wait to get any news regarding season two. Therefore stay tuned for the updates.
The plotline of Away
It is a story of the first crew expedition to Mars called the Joint Mars Initiative. This international crew consists of a Chinese chemist, Russian cosmonaut, Indian medical officers, a British botanist, and American astronaut Emma Green. Emma has a husband and a teenage daughter. Her husband is also an astronaut with the same qualifications as Emma however he cannot be part of the mission because of his medical issues.
The mission is set for three years and it begins from the moon. The Chinese and Russian crew does not trust Emma and find her lacking in leadership abilities because of her mistake in the pre-launch preparation that caused a fire. The series is about unity and humanity. It is also about hope and family. It teaches the lesson of how we all need each other to achieve.
