Moonhaven has been canceled at AMC+ despite being renewed for a second season.
The news comes days after AMC Networks CEO Christina Spade exited and the company made significant cost-cutting announcements, including laying off 20% of its U.S. employees and write-downs of up to $475 million as the company restructures.
Moonhaven’s cancellation is part of the write-downs, according to Deadline.
A quasi-utopian community is shown in the series, located on part of the Moon, to create the scientific and cultural tools necessary to save a devastated Earth. The first episode opens with a murder, and Season 1 centers on the Bridge, a crucial moment for this project on the Moon when the first generations of Mooners—as the residents of this community are known—will return to Earth to show the people how to resolve their ecological and economic crises.
The cast includes Dominic Monaghan, Emma McDonald, Amara Karan, Ayelet Zurer, Kadeem Hardison, Yazzmin Newell, Joe Manganiello, Elaine Tan, Bamshad Abedi-Amin, Josh Tedeku, Martha Malone, Adam Isla O’Brien, Nina Barker-Francis, Lilit Lesser, George Georgiou, Arthur Lee, Amy Ledwidge, Charis Agbonlahor, Robyn Holdaway, Seán T. Ó Meallaigh, Helen Roche, Medivic Bakanababo and Thom Ashley.
