NBC's streaming platform Peacock has opted not to renew its mystery thriller Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol for a second season, Deadline reported on Monday.

The series served as a prequel to the popular series of film adaptations of Dan Brown's thrillers, which starred Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon.

The Lost Symbol was previously intended as an NBC series, before it was shuffled over to the network's streamer.

'We were so proud to bring this action-packed mystery thriller to our members and enjoyed watching this compelling series unfold with a satisfying, complete story,' Peacock said in a statement to the publication.

'We’re grateful to Dan Dworkin, Jay Beattie, Dan Brown, Brian Grazer and Ron Howard along with CBS Studios, Imagine Television and UTV for bringing this international bestselling novel to life.'

The Lost Symbol focused on the early career of Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon (played by Ashley Zukerman), who was also the protagonist of The Da Vinci Code (2006), Angels & Demons (2009) and Inferno (2016), all of which starred Tom Hanks as the lead and were directed by Ron Howard.

The series also featured Eddie Izzard, Valorie Curry, Sumalee Montano, Rick Gonzalez and Beau Knapp.

On the hunt: Langdon joined forces with the CIA in the 10-episode first season to help solve a series of deadly puzzles that were left in the wake of the disappearance of his mentor (Izzard); still from The Lost Symbol

Langdon joined forces with the CIA in the 10-episode first season to help solve a series of deadly puzzles that were left in the wake of the disappearance of his mentor (Izzard).

The Lost Symbol's pilot was originally produced for NBC, but a full-season order was given for Peacock instead.

After the commercial success of Angel & Demons, Columbia Pictures intended the story to serve as a third film in the Langdon series, with Hanks reprising his lead role and Howard again directing, but the project was ultimately shelved before the forces reunited years later for Inferno.

The show, which aired from September through November 2021, received only mixed reviews from critics and currently has a 54 percent 'rotten' score from reviewers surveyed by Rotten Tomatoes.

Ahead of its season finale, NBC opted to air the pilot episode on its broadcast channel in hopes of raising the show's profile, making it the first Peacock original to be rebroadcast on the network.

Zukerman, who was born in Southern California but moved to Australia when he was a child, recently had a recurring role on HBO's hit dramedy Succession.

He also starred opposite Kate Mara as her husband in the acclaimed FX miniseries A Teacher, which aired in 2020. 

More recently, he appeared as variations of the character Sheriff Nick Goode on Netflix's Fear Street horror trilogy.
