Pinkner said in a statement, “We’re super proud of the show we made — and very proud that it found an audience of very passionate fans, for many of whom it became an important personal touchstone: either reflecting their current life, or an echo of their own teenage years. We are grateful to Netflix for the opportunity, but are very disheartened we won’t be continuing to tell these stories.”
The series received mixed reviews from critics, with the show currently holding a 69% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But many critics praised the show’s representation of LGBT youth.

The 10-episode drama revolves around astronaut Niko Breckenridge (Sackhoff), who leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artefact. As she and her young crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.
The drama hails from Halfire Entertainment, marking the company's second series at Netflix following Alias Grace. Aaron Martin (Saving Hope, Degrassi: The Next Generation) created the series and serves as showrunner. Halfire's Noreen Halpern (Rookie Blue, Alias Grace, Haven) will also exec produce the series.
Another Life marks Sackhoff's return to the sci-fi genre following her breakout role on Syfy's Battlestar Galactica on which she played fan-favorite Starbuck for four seasons. Another Life also serves as Sackhoff's return to Netflix, which rescued former A&E Western drama Longmire for its final three seasons.
