Utopia was certainly one of those shows that hit a little too close to home during the pandemic year. Has Amazon canceled or renewed it for Season 2?
Based on the British series of the same name and adapted by Gillian Flynn, there was a lot of hope that Utopia would be a success. It followed a group of comic book nerds who found out about an unpublished follow-up to a comic book called Dystopia. The follow-up promised more hidden clues to foretell the future.
And that’s what these comic book nerds believed. They were sure that there were signs of things to come in this unpublished manuscript.
It didn’t look like they were alone, either. Dark forces were sent to kill anyone who had seen Utopia, or anyone who may know where Jessica Hyde was. Why did they want Jessica Hyde? That was something we’d spend the whole series wondering.
Has Utopia been renewed?
We start with the bad news. Amazon canceled the dystopian series after just one season. There is a chance that a few things hit a little close to home.
There was the focus on a deadly virus that threatened humanity and a vaccine rollout that turned out to be nothing like it pretended to be. Was that something we really needed during the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic?
Will there be a Season 2 of Utopia?
There isn’t going to be a second season. At least, there won’t be on Amazon. Of course, there is always a chance that it could be rebooted again at a later date. The timing of the series was certainly to blame for the cancellation.
I say that as someone who enjoyed the series. It was just a little too much at the time.
When does the new season of Utopia start?
With no second season, there is no start date. Sorry, guys. this series is one and done.
Utopia is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
