The series, which only aired for one season, was a spinoff of the Nicolas Cage-starring franchise that focused on a young DACA woman named Jess (Lisette Olivera) who attempts to find a lost Pan-American treasure while uncovering secrets about her family. Olivera is joined by Zuri Reed, Antonio Cipriano, Jordan Rodrigues, Jake Austin Walker and Lyndon Smith, while Justin Bartha, who portrayed Riley Poole in the film franchise along Cage, reprised his role as a special guest. A reason behind the cancellation was not given.
Although the series was cancelled before Cage could even make an appearance, movie and series producer Jerry Bruckheimer teased in August 2022 that they are still developing National Treasure 3 and that they were in the process of finishing the script. “Hopefully [Cage] likes it, but it’s really good. So I think we’ll get it to him shortly,” he previously said, however an updated has not been given again as of writing.
Elsewhere in entertainment, Al Pacino revealed that he was given the chance to play a major role in Star Wars.
