Kazuo Ishiguro’s masterpiece Never Let Me Go is getting a second adaptation! The novel was shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 2005. It also inspired the critically acclaimed 2010 film of the same name, which starred Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan, and Andrew Garfield.

The new television series will air on FX and is being developed by Melissa Iqbal of The Nevers and Humans. Never Let Me Go follows the lives of Ruth, Kathy, and Tommy, childhood friends and genetically modified clones who are raised as organ donors in a dystopian society. Both the novel and the film explore what it means to be human as the trio experience love and begin to dream of a life outside of their society. There is no word yet on a release date for the project.

I am a nurse and dedicated nerd from Boston, MA. When I'm not at work, I'm rewatching old favorites like Supernatural or discovering my new obsessions (too many to count!). When not fangirling, I can be found reading, writing, or listening to a true crime podcast. You can find me on Twitter @juleswritesblog for more nerdy nonsense.
