A full series adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro’s dystopian Never Let Me Go has been greenlit by FX, for delivery to Hulu and Disney+.
DNA Films produces the full run, which follows a successful pilot written by Melissa Iqbal; she returns to write the series and will serve as showrunner.
Iqbal also exec produces with series director Marc Munden, Alex Garland, Andrew Macdonald, Allon Reich Maria Fleischer and author Ishiguro. DNA also produced the 2010 feature film adaptation.

When she lives undercover in the real world, Thora unknowingly sparks a revolutionary chain of events.
Kelly Macdonald and Tracey Ullman co-star with Aiysha Hart, Spike Fearn, Gary Beadle, Kwami Odoom, Shaniqua Okwok, Susan Brown, Keira Chanse, Edward Holcroft and Susan Brown.
