HBO has dropped the official trailer for its upcoming series The Nevers, created by Joss Whedon. Part One debuts with six episodes beginning on Sunday, April 11 (9 PM ET/PT). The remaining six episodes in Part Two will follow at a later date, to be announced. The series will air on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.
The Nevers is set in August, 1896. In the series, Victorian London is rocked to its foundations by a supernatural event which gives certain people – mostly women – abnormal abilities, from the wondrous to the disturbing. But no matter their particular “turns,” all who belong to this new underclass are in grave danger. It falls to mysterious, quick-fisted widow Amalia True (Donnelly) and brilliant young inventor Penance Adair (Skelly) to protect and shelter these gifted “orphans.” To do so, they will have to face the brutal forces determined to annihilate their kind.
Part One of the first season is executive produced by Whedon, Bernadette Caulfield, Ilene S. Landress, Doug Petrie, Jane Espenson and Philippa Goslett. Daniel S. Kaminsky co-executive produces.
