The last time ABC tried a retro series revolving around a group of ladies — Pam Am — it was a ratings disappointment and was cancelled after one season. Will The Astronaut Wives Club be a different story or the same old tune? Cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
Based on the book by Lily Koppel, The Astronaut Wives Club focuses on seven women who were key players behind some of the biggest events in American history. As America’s astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, the lives of their young wives were transformed — seemingly overnight — from military spouses to American royalty. The cast includes Yvonne Strahovski, Dominique McElligott, Odette Annable, Joanna García, Erin Cummings, Azure Parsons, Zoe Boyle, Bret Harrison, Aaron McCusker, Wilson Bethel, Kenneth Mitchell, and Desmond Harrington.
