It is being reported that Disney+ has cancelled The Right Stuff after just one season. The drama, which aired its eight-episode freshman season last fall, is the first scripted cancellation on the streaming service.

Based on Tom Wolfe's 1979 book of the same name, the series is set in the early 1960s when U.S. fighter pilots are recruited to trial experimental aircraft and rockets, becoming America's first astronauts known as the Mercury Seven. As part of the space race with the Soviet Union, these astronauts and their families become household names as they work towards humankind's monumental achievement of landing on the moon.

Per Deadline, producer Warner Bros. Television is shopping the show around for a potential second season. TNT and HBO Max could be possible destinations, as they are both owned by WarnerMedia.
