The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown, canceled, Peacock

Sorry, Robert Langdon. You’ve deciphered your last centuries-old riddle. Deadline has reported that Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol has been cancelled by Peacock after a single season.

We were so proud to bring this action-packed mystery thriller to our members and enjoyed watching this compelling series unfold with a satisfying, complete story,” Peacock said in a statement. “We’re grateful to Dan Dworkin, Jay Beattie, Dan Brown, Brian Grazer and Ron Howard along with CBS Studios, Imagine Television and UTV for bringing this international bestselling novel to life.” Based on the 2009 novel by Dan Brown, The Lost Symbol starred Ashley Zukerman as young Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon as he must solve a series of deadly puzzles to save his kidnapped mentor and thwart a chilling global conspiracy. In addition to Zukerman, The Lost Symbol also starred Valorie Curry, Sumalee Montano, Rick Gonzalez, Eddie Izzard and Beau Knapp.

With a pilot directed by Dan Trachtenberg, The Lost Symbol premiered on Peacock last September and aired its season, now series, finale in November. Our own Alex Maidy reviewed the series before it premiered and while he found that it tackled some aspects of Dan Brown’s novels better than the big-screen adaptations starring Tom Hanks, it was still lacking. “The Lost Symbol does a far better job at bringing the intricate puzzle-solving and conspiracy elements to screen but still fails to capture the Indiana Jones-esque tone that Dan Brown’s novels manage to evoke,” Maidy wrote. “All of the building blocks are here but there is just something missing. Fans of the books may find this adaptation to be a far more satisfying take on the source material but it still fails to be a rollicking adventure.” You can check out the rest of Alex Maidy’s review right here. Are you sad to hear that The Lost Symbol has been cancelled?
