On Sunday, August 1, Peacock revealed the premiere date for their upcoming thriller series, Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol.

Before long, followers began to uncover the secret message, “Watch September Sixteenth.”

And, on Monday, August 2, the streaming service confirmed the date by releasing a reveal video, which had many puzzle-solvers feeling particularly proud. “Seems like I got exactly 45 days to reread my favorite book,” one fan tweeted in response. “(I hope I got everything right!)”
