Americanah series adaptation put on indefinite hold

Lupita Nyong'O and Danai Gurira's 'Americanah' series adaptation will not be premiering anytime soon.

According to an exclusive report by Variety, the anticipated adaptation of Chimamanda Adichie's 2013 novel of the same title, has been put on indefinite hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Production for the HBO Max series was originally billed to kick off earlier this year but the unannounced date was pushed back due to the pandemic. Co-showrunner, Lupita Nyong'O then reportedly dropped out as it conflicted with other scheduled projects.

Both Gurira and Nyong'O were to serve as executive producers of the now-abandoned show. It was to star Uzo Aduba, Corey Hawkins, Zackary Momoh Tireni Oyenusi and Nyong'O who was to play the lead character, Ifemelu.
