‘The Right Stuff’ Becomes First Scripted Series To Be Cancelled By Disney+


The Right Stuff didn’t have the right stuff.

The series, based on Mercury 7 astronauts, is the first scripted series to be cancelled by Disney+, according to Deadline.

Produced by Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way, The Right Stuff starred Patrick J. Adams, Jake McDorman, Colin O’Donoghue, Aaron Staton, James Lafferty, Micah Stock, and Michael Trotter.

The show centered on the Mercury 7 who were America’s first test pilots for the rockets headed to space.

The Right Stuff started its run on National Geographic before launching as a Disney+ original, and Deadline says that there are plans to shop the series elsewhere.

TNT and HBO Max are being considered to host the show for a second season.

Patrick, who played John Glenn in the series, recently opened up about the pressure of playing a legend.
