NBCUniversal has opted against a second season of “Brave New World,” which marks the first cancellation for the introduced streaming service. Based on the novel by Aldous Huxley, “Brave New World” 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 the society’s rules. But the sow 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 show’s studio, Universal Content Productions, will attempt to sell it to other outlets. Nine episodes were produced in season one.
