We’re finally getting a look at HBO’s highly anticipated fantasy/drama series The Nevers. Originally being overseen by Joss Whedon (Avengers), screenwriter Philippa Goslett eventually took over the series. Described as a Victorian-Era superhero drama, the show pits several young women against dark and evil forces.
Check out the trailer below!
“In the last years of Victoria’s reign, London is beset by the ‘Touched’: people – mostly women – who suddenly manifest abnormal abilities – some charming, some very disturbing. Among them are Amalia True (Laura Donnelly), a mysterious, quick-fisted widow, and Penance Adair (Ann Skelly), a brilliant young inventor. They are the champions of this new underclass, making a home for the Touched, while fighting the forces of… well, pretty much all the forces – to make room for those whom history as we know it has no place.”
The six-episode first season of The Nevers arrives on HBO and HBO Max this April.
