Utopia goes full throttle in a deleted scene unveiled by Prime Video today, on the heels of the Amazon Original Series’ September 25 launch.
The sequence was first revealed as a world-exclusive during Utopia’s New York Comic Con Panel this afternoon, which is now available to stream on NYCC’s official YouTube channel.
Packed with duplicity, a thrilling chase and business deal gone awry, the previously-unseen clip comes from the series’ penultimate episode, and as executive producer and showrunner Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl, Sharp Objects) puts it, “…it killed me to cut it…the stakes were so high…that scene was its own pure cul-de-sac…”

Utopia centers on a group of comic fans who meet online and bond over their obsession of a seemingly fictional comic called, “Utopia.” Together, Becky (Ashleigh LaThrop), Ian (Dan Byrd), Samantha (Jessica Rothe), Wilson Wilson (Desmin Borges) and Grant (Javon “Wanna” Walton) unearth hidden meanings cloaked within the pages of “Utopia,” predicting threats to humanity. They realize these are not just the makings of a conspiracy; they are very real dangers coming alive right now in their world.
The group embarks on a high-stakes adventure, bringing them face-to-face with the comic’s famed central character, Jessica Hyde (Sasha Lane), who joins them on their mission to save the world while harboring secrets of her own.
The series also stars John Cusack as Dr. Kevin Christie, in his first series regular role for television. Rainn Wilson stars as Dr. Michael Stearns, Farrah Mackenzie as Alice, Christopher Denham as Arby, and Cory Michael Smith as Thomas Christie.
