Created by Joss Whedon (‘The Avengers,’ ‘Firefly’), ‘The Nevers’ is an upcoming HBO science fiction series set in Victorian England. The story revolves around a group of young women with extraordinary abilities. These women, also known as the Touched, take on a sinister and powerful enemy while struggling to survive in an increasingly hostile society. Since HBO revealed in July 2018 that they had green-lighted a straight-to-series production of Whedon’s project, it has drawn considerable attention.
However, in November 2020, Whedon told the media he was leaving the production. In January 2021, Philippa Goslett (‘Mary Magdalene’) was brought in to replace Whedon as the showrunner. Despite all the problems that the show encountered in recent months, it is now ready for its big debut. Here is everything you need to know about ‘The Nevers’ pilot episode.
