THE NEVERS, the Victorian/steampunk/fantasy mash-up from Joss Whedon hits HBO this Sunday! And personally couldn’t be more excited! And to get ready, looks like the powers that be dropped a new trailer! Check it out below!
I know Whedon has been under fire over the last year, with the allegations of abuse of power and unprofessionalism on the JUSTICE LEAGUE set from cast member, Ray Fisher, and more recently with Charisma Carpenter and other members of the Buffy-verse cast speaking out as well. I won’t get into my opinion on that whole situation, but being a fan of Whedon’s body work has remained unchanged. Having first heard about this project back in 2018, I am SO EXCITED it’s finally here!
Outside of the quick blurb above, not sure how I can describe this, so here’s the bit from the trailer’s YouTube page:
Victorian London is rocked to its foundations by a supernatural event that 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 (Laura Donnelly) and brilliant young inventor Penance Adair (Ann Skelly) to protect and shelter these gifted “orphans.” To do so, they will have to face the brutal forces determined to annihilate their kind.
Supernatural powers, Victorian London, steampunk goodness… having just finished THE IRREGULARS on Netflix, definitely looking for more of this goodness! While a lot of sites are billing this as an “extended” trailer, if you missed the first one, check it out below.
Although Whedon is no longer involved with the project, THE NEVERS will premiere this Sunday, April 11th on HBO & HBO Max. Sunday will being the first 6 episodes that were under Joss Whedon, and followed by another 6 at a later date under THE NEVERS’ new showrunner.
