Peacock’s Brave New World show – cast, trailer and reviews for new Joseph Morgan series – The Sun
BRAVE New World is set to air on NBC Universal's new streaming service Peacock this week.
The series is based on the 1932 novel of the same name.
Despite the cast, critics haven't received the series as warmly as expected.
What is Brave New World about and where can I watch it?
Based on Aldous Huxley’s groundbreaking 1932 novel, Brave New World imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself, with everyone taking a pill to be "happy."
They have only ever known a rigid social order, a perfect pharmaceutical called Soma, and a culture of instant gratification and ubiquitous sex.
Curious to explore life beyond the strictures of their society, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion.
Bernard and Lenina are rescued by John the Savage, who escapes with them back to New London.
But John’s arrival in the New World soon threatens to disrupt its utopian harmony, leaving Bernard and Lenina to grapple with the repercussions.
The three become entwined in a fraught relationship that awakens them to the dangers of their own conditioning.
The show is set to air free on Peacock on the same day the streaming service launches, July 15.
Who is in the cast?
The cast includes Alden Ehrenreich, who played a young Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story and Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown Findlay.
Demi Moore, 57, swaps her brunette hair for long white-blonde locks and plays Linda in the show.
British actor Joseph Morgan, who previously played the beloved Klaus Mikaelson on The Originals, plays CJack60.
Peacock Premium, on the other hand, will charge users $4.99 a month.
