Utopia is one of the best original thriller fantasy series ever made, and even though the series is brilliant in every way but nearly no one knows about it. Utopia is a Channel 4 series and it debuted in 2013 with rave reviews from the critics and anybody who watched it loved the series. Utopia follows a group of young adults who get their hands on a manuscript that throws their life into chaos and makes them a target of a clandestine organization. Utopia got canceled after its second season and that’s why it never got to complete its story, which is still a very painful subject for its fans. So, if you also miss the original Utopia series here are some more brilliant shows you should watch for some more thrills.
