The new HBO series The Nevers is already a huge hit and the show features some incredibly talented actors, many of whom you likely don’t know yet.
Joss Whedon created the new fantasy series, which is set in Victorian London and takes place three years after a supernatural event gives certain people – mostly women – abnormal abilities, from the wondrous to the disturbing.
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.
The first episode premiered this week and it delivered the best-ever debut for an original series on HBO Max, according to Variety.
After directing the first three episodes of the series, Joss dropped out of the project due to “exhaustion” and to focus on his personal life amid the investigation into misconduct allegations on the set of Justice League. He was replaced as showrunner by Philippa Goslett.
