Edge Of History has been canceled by Disney Plus
April 23, 2023
The Disney+ original series, “National Treasure: The Edge of History“, there’s no more. Deadline reports that Disney+ has canceled the television series, a sequel to two 2000s films starring Nicolas Cage. So the series is one and done and will not return for a second season.
Disney has canceled the television series “National Treasure: The Edge of History.”
The series debuted at the end of December and will run until February for one season with 10 episodes. Disney Branded Television and ABC Signature produced the series. He expanded into the world of films, which debuted in 2005 with the first film “National Treasure”. Later, in 2007, it gave birth to a successful sequel, entitled “National Treasure: Book of Secrets”.
While there had been talk of a follow-up or follow-up to Disney’s “National Treasure” for many years since “Book of Secrets,” nothing materialized until “Edge of History” was announced as an original television series for the Disney+ streaming service. The series received generally poor reviews from critics, with the first and only season scoring a 38% Rotten tomatoes. Its audience score is currently 49%.
The series follows a young heroine, Jess, played by Lisette Olivera, a DREAMer who searches for answers about her family and discovers that her father is part of a network of treasure guards. He soon embarks on an adventure to uncover the truth about his family and rescue a lost Pan-American treasure.
The show also starred Academy Award-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones (“Chicago,” “Wednesday”) as black market antiques dealer Billie Pearce. The show also stars Justin Bartha (“The Hangover”) and Harvey Keitel (“Pulp Fiction,” “Bugsy”) reprising their roles from the original films as Riley Poole and Peter Sadusky. Riley Cage was Ben Gates’ friend and co-worker in the previous films.
The series also starred Zuri Reed, Antonio Cipriano, Jordan Rodrigues, Jake Austin Walker and Lyndon Smith. Executive producers were the original film’s producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Jon Turteltaub, and writers Marianne and Cormac Wibberley. The Wibberleys wrote the series’ first episode, and executive producer Rick Muirragui also served as a writer for the episodic show.
Whether the third “National Treasure” movie starring Cage will finally happen remains to be seen. The second film was even more successful than the original, grossing $219 million domestically and $459 million worldwide on a $130 million budget. Producer Bruckheimer said Oh! news Last December, when the television series started, a new film was in development and it read: “At the same time we were developing ‘National Treasure’ for cinemas with Nicolas Cage – which it is now. So that’s a work in progress.”
Cage will not reprise his role as Ben Gates in “Edge of History.” It will be interesting to see if the cancellation of the TV show possibly hurts the chances of a third film being made, or perhaps pushes forward the need for a third film starring the iconic Cage. The original “National Treasure” is featured and the TV spinoff “Edge of History” is now streaming on Disney+.
