Never Let Me Go Lands at FX/Hulu


FX has ordered the new series Never Let Me Go, a one-hour drama inspired by Kazuo Ishiguro’s science-fiction novel.

The sci-fi thriller is exclusively for Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ under the Star banner in all other territories.

The series features Thora, 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.

Viola Prettejohn will star in the role of Thora, alongside Tracey Ullman, Kelly Macdonald, Aiysha Hart, Spike Fearn, Shaniqua Okwok, Gary Beadle, Kwami Odoom, Susan Brown, Keira Chansa and Edward Holcroft.

The series is produced by DNA Productions with FX Productions and Searchlight Television. Melissa Iqbal (The Nevers, Humans), who wrote the pilot, will serve as showrunner.

Never Let Me Go is a modern science-fiction classic that Melissa Iqbal and the creative team have brilliantly adapted for FX as a drama exploring timely and unsettling themes on life and the ethics of technology,” said Gina Balian, president of FX Entertainment. “We are honored to partner with Andrew and Allon at DNA Productions, Searchlight Television, Alex Garland, Marc Munden, Kazuo Ishiguro and the incredible cast on this exciting new project.”
