Peacock has canceled the Dan Brown adaptation The Lost Symbol after just one season. The 10-episode series debuted on September 16 and concluded its first season, which is also its final season, on November 18. Based on Dan Brown’s bestselling thriller “The Lost Symbol,” the series follows the early adventures of Robert Langdon, a young Harvard symbologist who must solve a deadly series of puzzles to rescue his kidnapped mentor and thwart a global conspiracy.
A source familiar with NBCUniversal’s decision to cancel “The Lost Symbol,” which will continue to air on its platform, says Peacock and the producers believe the series adaptation of the book tells the full story of the source material. Thus, it is among the thoughts that there is no story left to tell for the series where the expected response has not been received.
In “The Lost Symbol,” Ashley Zukerman (“Succession”), Valorie Curry (“Blair Witch”), Sumalee Montano (“10 Cloverfield Lane”), Rick Gonzalez (“Arrow”), Eddie Izzard (“Ocean’s Thirteen”) and It stars Beau Knapp (“Seven Seconds”). Peacock said in a statement, “We were proud to present this action-packed mystery thriller to our members and enjoyed watching this engaging series come to life with a satisfying, complete story. CBS Studios, along with Imagine Television and UTV, brought this international bestselling novel to life. We are grateful to Dan Dworkin, Jay Beattie, Dan Brown, Brian Grazer, and Ron Howard.” it was said.
“The Lost Symbol” is directed by Brown, Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Samie Kim Falvey, Anna Culp, John Weber, and Frank Siracusa, with writers Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie. Dan Trachtenberg produced and directed the pilot episode. The drama comes from CBS Studios, Imagine Television Studios, and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
