All hope is lost for more “Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol”. Peacock canceled the series after one season.
“We were so proud to bring this action-packed mystery thriller to our members and enjoyed watching this gripping series unfold with a complete and satisfying story,” Peacock said in a statement. “We are grateful to Dan Dworkin, Jay Beattie, Dan Brown, Brian Grazer and Ron Howard as well as CBS Studios, Imagine Television and UTV for bringing this internationally bestselling novel to life.”
Season 1 served as a complete adaptation of Brown’s novel. So the show was technically short of source material, but that’s generally not a death sentence for adapted shows – if they were particularly successful, of course.
Based on Dan Brown’s internationally acclaimed thriller “The Lost Symbol”, the series follows the early adventures of young Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, who must solve a series of deadly puzzles to save his kidnapped mentor and thwart a global conspiracy. scary.
The cast includes Ashley Zukerman (“Succession”), Valorie Curry (“Blair Witch”), Sumalee Montano (“10 Cloverfield Lane”), Rick Gonzalez (“Arrow”), Eddie Izzard (“Ocean’s Thirteen”) and Beau Knapp ( “Seven seconds”).
The series is produced by CBS Studios, Imagine Television Studios and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group. Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie will serve as writers and executive producers for the series. Dan Brown, Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Samie Kim Falvey, Anna Culp, John Weber and Frank Siracusa also serve as executive producers. Dan Trachtenberg executive produced and directed the pilot.
NBCUniversal recently made a small wave of cancellations, particularly regarding the airing of the NBC network’s unscripted competition series. Last week, Lil Rel Howery’s “Small Fortune” was dropped after one season.
This cancellation followed that of “Ellen’s Game of Games”. The primetime game show hosted by Ellen DeGeneres ran for four seasons.
The ending of “Game of Games” precedes the finale of Ellen’s syndicated daytime talk show.
