Brave New World Cancelled! Why Did Peacock Cancel It?

It has been recently confirmed that the Sci-fi drama series titled, Brave New World, has been canceled by Peacock after one season. The studio of the show, Universal Content Productions, will attempt to sell it to other outlets. The show is developed by David Wiener, and it was a part of Peacock’s original rollout and was the only scripted series of the streamer at the time of its launch in the month of July.

Brave New World is based on the novel by Aldous Huxley, and it depicts a utopian society that has reached peace by prohibiting monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history altogether. An artificial intelligence system called Indra is also put in place to connect citizens via a wireless network, and people are ranked based on their adherence to society’s rules.

However, the show takes a turn when citizens Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne travel to the Savage Lands where they become involved in a rebellion and are eventually rescued by John the Savage, who threatens the harmony of the utopian world.

The representatives for UCP and Peacock said in a statement late Wednesday that there is not going to be a second season of Brave New World. David Wiener has created a thought-provoking and cinematic adaptation. They are grateful to the cast and crew who brought this world to life, and they look forward to telling more stories with David in the future.

Peacock’s launch was severely impacted by the pandemic. A number of scripted originals were forced to shut down, and it delayed the Tokyo Olympics, which was to have been streamed on the service.
