Disney+ is calling off the hunt for more treasures.
The streamer has canceled its series National Treasure: Edge of History after one season. The news comes more than two months after the 10-episode series concluded in early February.
The show premiered in December 2022. As usual with streaming series, detailed ratings are not available Edge of history. It made Nielsen’s streaming rankings once during its run, ranking ninth on the original series for the week of January 16-22. (It’s one of only two Disney+ original series not related to Marvel or Star Wars to create the ranking; The Santas is the other.)
A sequel and “extension” of the National treasure movie franchise, Edge of history stars Lisette Olivera as Jess, a twenty-something DACA recipient who becomes entangled in a quest to find and secure lost treasures hidden from Spanish conquistadors by a network of Inca, Mayan, and Aztec women.
Justin Bartha and Harvey Keitel reprized their roles from the films; the cast also includes Zuri Reed, Jordan Rodrigues, Antonio Cipriano, Jake Austin Walker, Lyndon Smith and Catherine Zeta-Jones, who plays an antique dealer searching for the same artifacts as Jess.
Cormac and Marianne Wibberley, who wrote the scripts for the two National treasure movies (along with Jim Kouf on the first), executive producer alongside the film’s producer, Jerry Bruckheimer; Jonathan Littman and KristieAnne Reid from Jerry Bruckheimer TV; writer Rick Muirragui; Jon Turteltaub, who directed both National treasure movies; and series director Mira Nair.
