Inspired by the British show of the same name, the eight-episode thriller follows a group of fans of the comic Utopia, who unearth hidden meanings cloaked within the pages of the story and discover that they predict real-life apocalyptic disasters, including a worldwide pandemic. Together, the group must work with the comic's central character, Jessica Hyde, to stop the end of the world. However, not all is as it seems with Jessica.
The series comes from Gillian Flynn, the best-selling author of the novels Gone Girl and Sharp Objects. Flynn also wrote the film adaptation of Gone Girl and penned a few episodes of HBO's version of Sharp Objects.
