It is being reported that Peacock has cancelled Brave New World after just one season. The sad news comes three months after the sci-fi drama released its freshman run.

The hour-long series debuted on July 15 alongside the nationwide launch of the streaming service. Its nine first-season episodes ultimately garnered mixed reviews from both audiences and critics.

The show takes place in a utopian society, where peace and stability have been achieved through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and even history. New London residents Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne take a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become entangled in a violent rebellion. The two are rescued by John the Savage, who escapes with them back to New London. But John's arrival in the New World threatens to disrupt its utopian harmony, leaving Bernard and Lenina to deal with the repercussions.
