Never Let Me Go is not coming to Hulu after all. FX ordered the sci-fi drama series in October after putting it into development in May 2022. Melissa Iqbal was set to act as showrunner.
The FX on Hulu series was to be based on the 2005 novel by Kazuo Ishiguro. A feature film version was released in 2010. Viola Prettejohn, Tracey Ullman, Kelly Macdonald, Aiysha Hart, Spike Fearn, Shaniqua Okwok, Gary Beadle, Kwami Odoom, Susan Brown, Keira Chanse, and Edward Holcroft were to star in the sci-fi series.
Variety revealed the following about the plot of the series:
Thora (Viola Prettejohn), a rebellious teenage clone who escapes from the boarding school where she and her fellow clones are kept hidden from society. As she starts living undercover in the outside world, she unwittingly sets in motion events that will spark a revolution and test the boundaries of what it means to be human.
It is not known yet if the project will be sold to another outlet. The cancellation news came before any episodes were filmed.
