Disney+ has ended its search for hidden riches. The network has decided to end season one of National Treasure: Edge of History. This comes more than two months after the series finale in early February when the final episode aired.
In December 2022, the first episode aired. Edge of History follows the trend of streaming shows in that it lacks viewership data. Once during its run, January 16-22, 2019, it tied for ninth position among original series on Nielsen’s streaming rankings. (It’s one of just two Disney+ originals (together with The Santa Clauses) that aren’t connected to Marvel or Star Wars to reach the list.)
Edge of History, starring Lisette Olivera as Jess, a twentysomething DACA recipient, is a sequel and “expansion” of the National Treasure film series. Jess is drawn into a mission to recover jewels hidden from the Spanish conquistadors by a network of Incan, Mayan, and Aztec women.

In addition to film veterans Justin Bartha and Harvey Keitel, the cast also includes Zuri Reed, Jordan Rodrigues, Antonio Cipriano, Jake Austin Walker, Lyndon Smith, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, who portrays an antiquities dealer after the same objects as Jess.
