US drama The Right Stuff, an adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s 1979 nonfiction book of the same name, has reportedly been cancelled.
The series, starring Patrick J. Adams. seemingly didn’t have the right stuff for Disney+, but producers Warner Bros. Television are said to be looking for a new home.
Variety reports the cancellation was not tied to the show’s performance but a redesign of National Geographic’s strategic focus.
Two versions of the show are currently being shopped around, one of which involves the current cast’s contracts being extended, but another that focuses on the 1980s with a new cast.
Whether this also impacts on the future of Genius, another drama by Nat Geo, is unclear.
