It is being reported by Deadline that Paper Girls has been cancelled by Prime Video after one season. The news comes just over a month after the sci-fi drama released its 8-episode freshman run to high praise from critics and audiences. Producer Legendary Television is said to be trying to find a new home for the show on another platform.

Based on the graphic novels written by Brian K. Vaughan, the series follows four paper girls who are out on their delivery route in 1988 when they get caught in the crossfire between warring time-travelers, changing the course of their lives. This transports them into the future, where they must figure out a way to get back home to the past. Their journey brings them face-to-face with the grown-up versions of themselves, as they reconcile that their futures are far different than their 12-year-old selves ever imagined.
