One day, two unusual men appeared on the doorstep of a comic book store. While one is methodically killing visitors, the second is asking the seller if he has a “Utopia” and where is a certain Jessica Hyde. This is how the British TV series “Utopia” – using the theme of conspiracy theories – begins. The main characters of the TV show are trying to unravel the mystery of the comic book “Utopia”. In this graphic novel, knowledge is hidden that will definitely affect the fate of all mankind.
The new volume of the comic book fell into the hands of the main characters of the TV show. Formerly simple law-abiding citizens, they have now become fugitives in whose footsteps are very dangerous people. All the actions of the TV series are accompanied by poisonous bright colors, original camera work and a unique soundtrack.
- The first season of the TV show was released on January 15, 2013 on UK Channel 4. Renewed for a second season – which came out a year later – the TV series was canceled on August 12, 2014.
- An American remake of “Utopia” was put into development immediately following the final episode of the original TV show. Swapping showrunner (from director David Fincher to writer Gillian Flynn), platform (the TV show settled on Amazon Prime) and script, this project has come a long way towards filming. As a result, the American remake was premiered on September 25, 2020. Released between the two waves of the COVID-19 pandemic, the new version of “Utopia” was poorly received by the public. Amazon Prime canceled the project after its first season.
- Dennis Kelly, creator of the original TV show, released “The Third Day” in 2020. This yet another paranoid TV series starring Jude Law has an original structure, with its three-episode blocks divided by an immersive live show.
Utopia is a British-made fantasy thriller TV series. The first season of the TV show premiered on January 15, 2013 on UK Channel 4.
