Hilary Swank stars in the trailer for new Netflix sci-fi series ‘Away’

Netflix has released the latest teaser trailer for the upcoming drama web television series Away.

The new show, created by Andrew Hinderaker and executive produced by Showrunner Jessica Goldberg, stars Hilary Swank in the lead and is due to premiere on Netflix in September.

“From executive producer Jason Katims, the Netflix series Away is a thrilling, emotional drama on an epic scale that celebrates the incredible advancements humans can achieve and the personal sacrifices they must make along the way,” the official synopsis from Netflix states.

“As American astronaut Emma Green (Hilary Swank) prepares to lead an international crew on the first mission to Mars, she must reconcile her decision to leave behind her husband (Josh Charles) and teenage daughter (Talitha Bateman) when they need her the most. As the crew’s journey into space intensifies, their personal dynamics and the effects of being away from their loved ones back on Earth become increasingly complex. Away shows that sometimes to reach for the stars, we must leave home behind.

“It is a series about hope, humanity and how ultimately, we need one another if we are to achieve impossible things.”

Heading off to Mars on a bold mission, the eagerly anticipated new series also features the likes of Josh Charles, Talitha Bateman, Mark Ivanir, Ato Essandoh, Ray Panthaki, Vivian Wu and more in the zero-gravity drama.

While the project has been in the works since May 2019, only now are we getting a first look at the plans. See the trailer teaser, below.
