After six weeks of intrigue, agony, some notable fashion moments, a lot of yellow, and some business with a spoon and chilli, viewers were rewarded with the answer to the most intriguing question of all, where IS Jessica Hyde? Well, on a rooftop, bleeding, with her entire world collapsing around her.
But what now? That would be telling. What we can tell you is Dennis Kelly is locked away in an undisclosed nuclear fall-out shelter, with Cristobel Tapia’s gorgeously unnerving soundtrack on loop, surrounded by an array of condiments and kitchen implements to serve as inspiration for series 2. So take this time to take a breath, and steel yourself as Dennis Kelly draws up 6 x 60 episodes of cerebrally-taxing, visually stunning madness.
Utopia Series 2 goes into production later this year. Written by Dennis Kelly (Matilda, Spooks) Executive producers are Karen Wilson (Hustle, Spooks), Jane Featherstone (Spooks, Life on Mars, The Hour) and Dennis Kelly.
