The animated sci-fi series has been cancelled after one season at Max, but Netflix will begin streaming its one and only season on Friday, May 31, our sister site Variety reports.

Set on an alien planet, Scavengers Reign follows the crew of a damaged freighter ship as they find themselves stranded in a beautiful but unforgiving world. “As the survivors struggle to locate their downed ship and missing crewmates, their new home reveals a hostile world allowed to thrive without human interference,” the official synopsis reads.

Sunita Mani (GLOW) led the voice cast as Ursula, with Wunmi Mosaku (Loki) as Azi and Alia Shawkat (Search Party) as robot Levi. Skyler Gisondo (The Righteous Gemstones), Pollyanna McIntosh (The Walking Dead) and Freddy Rodriguez (Bull) provided guest voices as well.

The 12-episode freshman season debuted on Max in October and received strong acclaim, with critics lauding its gorgeous animation and otherworldly storytelling. The season finale aired Nov. 9.
