The drama series, The lost symbol, based on a Dan Brown novel, has been cancelled by the NBCUniversal-owned streaming service after a single season. The revelation comes two months after the 10-episode season of the programme ended.
In a statement, Peacock said, “We were very happy to deliver this action-packed mystery thriller to our members. And enjoyed seeing this riveting series unfold with a satisfying, full tale. We owe a debt of gratitude to Dan Dworkin, Jay Beattie, Dan Brown, Brian Grazer, and Ron Howard. As well as CBS Studios, Imagine Television, and UTV, for bringing this international bestseller novel to life.”
Lost symbol: A novel with 10 episodes
The Lost Symbol (formerly named Langdon) is a precursor to author Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code. It features Robert Langdon (Ashley Zukerman) as he attempts to solve a series of deadly puzzles. Moreover, He also thwart a worldwide conspiracy after his mentor is kidnapped. The novel’s events were covered in the 10-episode season; if it had been continued, additional episodes would have gone out into other adventures for Langdon.
The show was first conceived at NBC, which ordered a pilot in early 2020.
Moreover, In March 2021, it was relocated to NBCUniversal’s Peacock network, where it received a series order. The Lost Symbol debuted in September to mixed reviews, with Daniel Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter calling it “a stab at a blockbuster series that soars no further than acceptably bland.” Peacock did not provide any comprehensive watching data for the series, as is customary with streaming sites.
The Lost Symbol was produced by CBS Studios and Universal Television in collaboration with Imagine TV, whose film counterpart created three feature films based on Brown’s novels starring Tom Hanks as Langdon. However, Brown, Grazer, Howard, Samie Kim Falvey, Anna Culp, John Weber, and Frank Siracusa executive produce Dworkin and Beattie’s adaptation of Brown’s novel.
