Max has shut down the animated series "Scavengers Reign" after one season

But Netflix can still save the project.
A still from "Kingdom of the Scavengers"

Streaming service Max has closed the animated series "Scavengers Reign" — the project lasted one season.

But there is hope for salvation: Netflix bought the rights to show the series and, according to Variety, is considering renewing the animated show for a second season. The decision will be made after May 31, when "Scavengers Reign" is released on Netflix.

"Scavengers Reign" is about a cargo spaceship that unexpectedly changes its route and disappears from radar. Everyone thinks the crew is dead, but they are: their ship has crashed and they find themselves on an incredibly beautiful but very dangerous planet. The team will have to find the wrecked ship and missing crew members, wait for help or try to save themselves.

The series is based on the 2016 short film "Scavengers". "Scavengers Reign" premiered in October. The project was enthusiastically received by critics and viewers alike, with the series' ratings on Rotten Tomatoes at 100% and 94% respectively.

There are no simple words. It was the best thing I watched last year, in terms of fiction, for sure. There were such hopes for the second season.

It's a pity, it's a very unusual and original series. I hope, as in the case of the Pantheon, another service will take the series for itself.

Yes, the second season is not that much needed. The story was finished normally.

As usual: all sorts of shit is extended for 5 seasons, and the shelf life is closed. It's very sad. Cartoon masterpiece

I'm not familiar with the original, and considering that the probability of closing the project is still high, I don't know if it's worth starting to watch ... did you finish the season normally? what will knowledgeable people say?

@arcvers: He himself is an original series. The original in the broadest sense of the word (which is done in the article) here we can only consider a short film, which is completely independent of the series.

It definitely makes sense to watch, along the way you will understand whether it is yours or not, because it is specific.

The season is over, in fact, well, the final is an open door, if I may say so. It is quite finished, but it also gives room for continuation

We couldn't find enough banned substances to prolong the series, so we closed it. Netflix may be able to help with this issue. That's just what will happen to the
agenda... And yes, anime shit (c)

Didn't catch my eye.
After the comments above, we will definitely take a look.
Also, the ratings and reviews are good., then they close.
Let's hope that they will pick up the series.

I don't understand why the project, so caressed by the audience and critics, is being closed, well, rather, I understand that everything probably rests on money, but really there is no desire to keep something so original and liked by everyone and try to develop it? Apparently not.

On the other hand, I am wary of the news that Netflix can save the series. Lately, what this miracle service does not touch turns into garbage, with rare exceptions, and instead of saving, the operation will turn into their classic "finish off the survivors".

It's better to have one wonderful season than 1+n seasons of shameful ridiculous bullshit.

This is one of the best animated series in recent years. I will wait as a continuation of the Firefly, even for eternity.

I won't say that it's a pity, but the project is really worthy and very unusual. On the other hand, ask the question: were there prerequisites for the continuation?

@Redopera: it would be possible to make an interesting anthology, for example. Well, each season has new characters and a new story. You never know who else crashed on this planet or could have suffered in the future, or maybe even flew in on purpose (for example, to look for someone). And as a result, it would be possible not to trash the characters, but to change them.

And so that there is no stagnation in the setting, there are not just different biomes on the planet? There may be different seasons, so that conditionally the first season was in summer, and winter is not like this at all, but like this.

Well, etc., I was dreaming up something. (Max, write it down, then thank you)

I mean, when and which creators stopped before the sequel just because there are no prerequisites, it seems never) Usually just give me an excuse to stick more.

@Jesus_Crust: The problem with such content is usually a lack of imagination. That's enough for one season with a squeak, and then they would probably be mired in endless self-citation, which would only spoil the impression of a good season, losing the audience and money for production

@Elven_Kelevra: That's what I'm afraid of if Netflix takes the series under its wing.
But yes, there is such a possibility, it already depends on the authors, they were able to promote the original short film for the season, and then who knows

When I started watching Last Man, I thought there would be some kind of ironic passer-by for a couple of evenings, and then I was naturally crazy about the elaboration, the plot and how it develops, where it leads and how the characters reveal themselves. Although, well, nothing foreshadowed at first)

@Jesus_Crust: by the way, Last Man, in my opinion, is a great example of how the fantasy of the authors was blown away) The first season was cheerful, set an excellent rhythm, intrigue, created an interesting world, plot, and in the second I just felt that I no longer had enough imagination, so the dynamics of the narrative sank very much, there were much fewer events than in the first, and the plot was much weaker, for the right timing, all this was diluted to my taste the view of dialogues and scenes that were just fillers and did not bring any benefit to the plot, the development of the world, the atmosphere, etc.
Jesus_Crust

@Elven_Kelevra: the dynamics sank due to the powerfully increased timing, but it made it possible to reveal the characters and make the plot structure more complicated, which would have been impossible with short episodes, ala the first season

From Lore's point of view, it seemed to me that everything was quite intense, the accents just shifted to the wrong place where I would like, but the narrative was powerfully plump in breadth, except that Richard and the company were drunk from the center of the narrative. But in general, at the time it seemed to me a very worthy and non-standard attempt (even the second season) show something new on the screen, rather than follow hackneyed paths and patterns. They just liked to make a new plot hook a little bit, and at that moment I was sweating, fearing that I would wait six years for an explanation again)

For a similar (not in essence, but in spirit) shizu, I liked Scavengers Reign

@Jesus_Crust: so the timing increased only in one episode, but the episodes themselves became much less in the season, as a result, the total timing in the first season is even more than in the second. But there's still a general plot that wanders from episode to episode, so I don't see a difference because of the length of individual episodes.
Personally, in the second season, I did not have enough disclosure of some plot points that the creators set back in season 1 and partially continued in season 2, as if the second was a filler between the first and the third.

Perhaps I'm still not a fan of when in fantasy films they unnecessarily make a roll into the dramatic component, that is, a strong disclosure of the characters, their relationships, etc. It happens to be done competently, moderately and by the way, but imho, as a rule, this is not the case and go in this direction just because of the lack of imagination. A similar problem is very common in modern books, you start reading fiction, horror, etc., and you find that they write more about relationships and everyday life than actually on the topic of the declared genres. Since it is always easier to compose on such topics than some kind of fantastic literate plot, where a cool fantasy is already needed, as well as good logic and intelligence that can beautifully combine everything that the author dreamed up.
But of course it's a matter of taste, it's my imho.

@Jesus_Crust: if the creators worked specifically on the embodiment of a specific idea, then there are limitations) If they fantasized about the world and its rules, then you can embody anything in it, just like your thoughts) Although there are really no boundaries. What you are writing about is like turning the first season into a template for replicating other works. But you see, they will be limited by this template. I can only understand it from the point of view of engineering discipline.

By the way, for those who liked the series, I can recommend the series of French comics (BD) "The Worlds of Aldebaran", the style, atmosphere and partially the plot are quite similar
