​Hilary Swank's New Netflix Series Is 'PS I Love You' Meets ‘Armageddon’

​Hilary Swank's New Netflix Series Is 'PS I Love You' Meets ‘Armageddon’

Fresh from the news that PS I Love You is getting a sequel, Netflix is giving us even more Hilary Swank with a new series that's a cross between the cult film and Armageddon.

Yes, that's right, Away mixes up the space themes we're used to in 1998's Armageddon with the emotion of PS I Love You - and we're already predicting a winner!

And the trailer looks epic tbh. Take a look here:

The series looks set to be a weepy tearjerker with Swank's Emma Green at its heart.

As American astronaut Emma prepares to lead an international crew on their first mission to Mars, she has to come to terms with her decision to leave her husband Matt (Josh Charles) and daughter Lex (Talitha Bateman) behind, just as they need her most.

Described as "a thrilling, emotional drama on an epic scale that celebrates the incredible advancements humans can achieve and the personal sacrifices they must make along the way," we're already convinced.

The three year mission has its ups and downs for the international team and we're teased to snippets in the trailer. The dramatic clip shows explosions, collapses and touching family moments including Emma preparing her daughter for her trip away.

"I got you a present," she tells Lex in the trailer, as she hands her a bracelet.

"That's the Earth, the Moon and Mars and the string is me, making my way back to you.

"So just remember the further away I get, I'm actually getting closer to being back to you."

The show also stars Ray Panthaki (Marcella) as Air Force pilot Ram Arya and Power's Monique Curnen as former astronaut Melissa Ramirez and is executive produced by Jason Katims who previously worked on Parenthood and Friday Night Lights, so we know we're in for a treat!

And with Hilary Swank already on board to reprise her role as Holly Kennedy in PS I Love You's sequel Postscript, plus the original already on the streaming platform, it seems we've got enough weepy drama to keep us going for a while.

Away will stream on Netflix from the 4th September.
