Amazon has axed sci-fi drama “Utopia” after just one season. The series, which premiered Sept. 25 on Amazon Prime Video, followed a group of young adults who meet online that are mercilessly hunted by a shadowy deep state organization after they come into possession of a near-mythical cult underground graphic novel. Within the comic’s pages, they discover the conspiracy theories that may actually be real and are forced into the dangerous, unique and ironic position of saving the world.
The Amazon adaptation was a co-production between Endemol Shine North America/Kudos and Amazon Studios. Executive producing alongside Flynn were Jessica Rhoades, Sharon Hall, Karen Wilson and Dennis Kelly. Eight episodes in total of “Utopia” were produced.
