‘Delirium’ Pilot Not Picked Up By Fox

Fox won’t be coming down with a case of deliria nervosa. The network has passed on the Emma Roberts-starring television adaptation of Lauren Oliver’s YA novel “Delirium,” according to Deadline.

The hour-long drama—set in a near future where love is deemed a disease curable only through a lobotomy-like procedure—wrapped production on its pilot episode last month and was among several potential series up for consideration at Fox.

Several of the would-be show’s young stars took to Twitter to express their disappointment over the announcement and thank fans.

“Devastated #Delirium didn’t get picked up,” Gregg Sulkin tweeted, adding: “Win some, you lose some.”

“Thank you to all my fans, its a tough loss, but life goes on. The journey has just begun. I guess well see whats next ;))) Love you all,” Daren Kagasoff wrote.

While it looks like fans won’t get to see Lena’s story unfold on the small screen, they can help continue her tale online, through the Lauren-supported fan fiction project “Requiem Endings.” Check out the website for more information.
