No Season 2 for the sci-fi drama.
October 28, 2020
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.

I could never get into it. It's not the first TV adaptation of "Brave New World" and somehow the book just doesn't lend itself to a good drama on TV. They all failed. It's always hard to find sympathy for the characters in this world.

I really loved this adaptation, though I did feel it really didnt have anywhere to go from the place it ended.
The way I saw @Just honest comment, was that you can say the same thing for either side. The hyper-tribalism in the country makes it where people support their side even if they are saying and doing the same thing as the "other" side. If my person does it, it's reasonable if your guy does it, it's an atrocity.

@MoeB... it's not a westworld clone... its based off a book that was released in 1932...

Brad you either missed the point or are ignoring reality.
Conservatives are for taking away freedoms like privacy, democracy, and justice. Why else would they hinder a Supreme Court nominee nine months before an election then vote one in less than nine days before hand? Why would they vow to fight votes before they are even cast, and public announce they won't accept election results?
As for money, they are for it as long as you are in the top 1% or a cooperation, but not for workers. Of course they are for family most of them have at least 2 hidden ones.

You are either not serious, or not honest.
Conservatives are FOR monogamy, privacy, money (you have a better idea?), and ESPECIALLY family.
So, Just Keith is correct.
After all, Hollywood fantasy is the ONLY place where conservatism fails and liberalism succeeds.
Hence, why “Brave New World” failed.

it was ok but I won't miss it. I'd rather read the book.
@ Just honest you're a moron.

There was just too much sex, drugs, rock n roll and violence in this show for my likings.......... ;)

"The show takes place in a (conservative ) utopian society, where peace and stability have been achieved through the prohibition of (freedoms Ike) monogamy, privacy, money, family, and even history."
No wonder it failed. It's an unsustainable conservative fantasy.

Huh. And here all along I thought it was a limited-run miniseries. Not sure where they would've taken it, with the Epsilons in open revolt, the main characters fleeing New London, and Indra's inner ring de-activated.
Overall, I enjoyed it. I thought it was an interesting adaptation of the book, albeit very loose.

Guess you’re not much of a reader @Just Keith. The plot is from the 1932 Huxley novel by the same name.
