Peacock has canceled “Brave New World” after one season, TheWrap has confirmed.

The series, an adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s seminal 1932 novel “Brave New World,” was among the first original scripted series to premiere on the streaming service, with the first season available upon Peacock’s July launch.

UCP, which produces the series in association with Amblin Television, plans to shop it to other outlets.

“Brave New World” imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself. Harry Lloyd, Jessica Brown Findlay and Alden Ehrenreich star alongside Demi Moore, Kylie Bunbury, Hannah John-Kamen, Sen Mitsuji, Joseph Morgan and Nina Sosanya.

The series is executive produced by showrunner David Wiener and Grant Morrison, along with Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, co-presidents of Amblin Television.

Deadline first reported news of the cancellation.
