National Treasure: Edge of History Season 2 won’t be happening as Disney has canceled the Disney+ series.
Per Deadline, the Disney+ series was not renewed for a second season. It joins a growing list of Disney+ TV shows that have been recently canceled, such as bigshot, The Mighty Ducks: Game Changersand Mysterious Benedict Society. Currently, most of the streamer’s hits are Marvel or Star Wars related.
While there being no National Treasure: Edge of History Season 2 is disappointing news for fans, they can still be hopeful for a potential third movie. Jerry Bruckheimer recently gave a National Treasure 3 update saying that they are still developing a new movie that would be a theatrical release with Nicolas Cage starring.
Disney+’s National Treasure series starred Lisette Alexis as Jess, Catherine Zeta-Jones (Prodigal Sound) as Billie, Zuri Reed (Flatbush Misdemeanors) as Tasha, Lyndon Smith (parenthood) as FBI Agent Ross, Jake Austin Walker (DC’s Stargirl) as Liam, Antonio Cipriano (Jagged Little Pill) as Oren, and Jordan Rodrigues (Light as a Feather) as Ethan.
The series explored “timely issues of identity, community, historical authorship, and patriotism told from the point of view of Jess Morales, a twenty-year-old DREAMer who, with her diverse group of friends, sets off on the adventure of a lifetime to uncover her mysterious family history and save a lost Pan-American treasure,” per the logline.
The series hailed from the original films’ producer Jerry Bruckheimer and the Wibberleys, who all served as executive producers. It was a production by Jerry Bruckheimer Television with ABC Signature as its studio. It was also executive produced by the first film’s director Jon Turteltaub, Jonathan Littman, KristieAnne Reed, and Rick Muirragui.
