Utopia 2020 is the American remake of British drama Utopia, which had an excellent – and surprisingly violent – first series, but then threw out any semblance of plot for the second series. By the way that ended – even with a cliffhanger – the expected drop in ratings led to its cancellation, even though a third series would’ve wrapped things up.
(Obviously, the US version is also just called ‘Utopia’, but, y’know, Google SEO.)
I’ll certainly give this version a go, but for how long I’ll stick with it, only time will tell. After all, the US took the one series & a bit we had of Queer As Folk and turned it into a five-season smash hit.
Utopia 2020 begins on Amazon Prime from September 25th.
