Brave New World's ending explained as sex-mad drama cancelled after just one season

BRAVE New World has been cancelled after just one season.

The adaptation of Aldous Huxley's novel aired on Peacock in the US and SkyOne in the UK, however, Peacock has decided not to renew the show for a second season.

The streaming service said in a statement to Deadline: “There will not be Season 2 of Brave New World on Peacock.

"David Wiener created a thought-provoking and cinematic adaptation. We’re grateful to the cast and crew who brought this world to life. We look forward to telling more stories with David in the future.”

However, UCP, the studio behind the sci-fi drama series, will shop the drama and a potential second series to other outlets.

The drama is set in a futuristic New London in 2540 where inhabitants take a 'perfect' drug called Soma, issued by the government to control them.


They live in a world where money, monogamy, privacy and family have been prohibited by the World State government, and casual sex is encouraged.

However, with all countries, there is a class system, and in New London, a lower class group called the Upsilons, who delegated chores such as litter picking and cleaning.

As the season goes on, the Upsilons begin to revolt, culminating in a bloody uprising.

They also destroy the supply of drugs which keep the inhabitants emotions stabilised, leading them to go mad and fight over the remaining pills.

Meanwhile Bernard was found with a gold box alongside him as he regained consciousness on the edge of a cliff.

He then used the mysterious contents of the box to head to the Savage Lands and possibly begin a new life.

Brave New World airs tonight at 9pm on Sky One.
