Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira’s serial adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi’s novel Adichie “Americanah” no longer goes as planned on HBO Max after Nyong’o was forced to leave the series, Variety exclusively learned.

“Americanah” was originally scheduled to start filming earlier this year, but production dates have been pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to a person familiar with the situation, Nyong’o had to give up because it conflicted with other projects on his schedule.

The show initially received a direct order for 10 episodes from the streamer last year. Nyong’o and Gurira were to be the executive producers of the series, with Nyong’o starring and Gurira writing and as showrunner.

Nyong’o’s longtime passion project, she had previously planned to adapt the novel into a film in which she would star alongside David Oyelowo. She revealed in 2018 that plans had changed to make her into series instead.

Starring Nyong’o, the series was set to play Uzo Aduba, Corey Hawkins, Zackary Momoh, and Tireni Oyenusi. It tells the story of Ifemelu (Nyong’o), a young, self-confident beautiful woman raised in Nigeria, who as a teenager falls in love with her classmate Obinze (Momoh). Living in a country ruled by the military, they each leave for the west, with Ifemelu heading to America, where, despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple for the first time with what it means to be black. . Silent and thoughtful, Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead dives into a dangerous undocumented life in London.

It is the latest in a growing list of shows that have been dropped due to the pandemic. Others are Netflix’s “The Company” and “I Don’t Agree With This,” while the fourth season of “GLOW” was also recently dropped. Elsewhere, Showtime has ended a second season of “On Becoming a God in Central Florida”. Other examples include the ABC drama “Stumptown,” whose second season renewal was canceled at the broadcaster in September.
