Therefore, there is no denying that there is a possibility of the series being renewed for a second season. Also, the story has the potential to develop further. Now that we’re talking about it, let’s see what’s different from the next season.
Utopia Falls Season 1 Overview
Utopia Falls’ features extraordinary teenagers whose lives are about to change. Set in a dystopian world more than 300 years into the future, there exists a utopian colony called New Babyl. Each year, several teenagers are selected to appear in the Exemplar Entertainment competition to honor the legacy of their founder, Gaia.
One of the candidates, Aaliyah, accidentally found a secret library of cultural heritage – The Archive. the dumbfounded Aaliyah introduced the place to her fellow candidates and they began to wonder why the Tribunal had removed them from the collection of various art forms like Rap and Hip-Hop, etc.
After Bohdi was arrested for performing a hip-hop-inspired set during a rehearsal, all of the Exemplar Candidates, led by Aliyah, started a rebellion against the Tribunal. Aliyah, Apollo, Bohdi, and Brooklyn embark on a quest to uncover if there are more people beyond the shield covering New Babyl. Aliyah and her group decide to expose the true side of their beautiful colony through the power of dance and music at the competition. Meanwhile, the Phydra Authority is doing whatever they can to stop Aliyah from fulfilling her goals.
Utopia Falls Season 2: What the Makers Can Improve?
The writing and production design seems rushed in the first season. Writers need to focus more on production design. After all, all four sectors have been designed to look very small. Are there more than 100 people living in the world of ‘Utopia Falls’? If yes, the makers need to focus more on that aspect of the story to effectively build the world.
While the series does a great job of making it look like a teen drama with a touch of sci-fi mystery, they need to make the actors look more emotional and let the audience get into their souls. by doing so they can keep things smooth and edgy while keeping the audience interested using the right acting tropes at the right time.
