    Joss Whedon's The Nevers: Watch a Teaser for HBO's Victorian Sci-Fi Drama

    By Matt Webb Mitovich / February 2 2021,

    The time is right now for The Nevers — that is, if you want to watch a teaser and see first photos for Joss Whedon’s long-gestating Victorian sci-fi drama for HBO.

    Set to debut this April on HBO as well as stream on HBO Max, the six-episode series is set in the last years of Victoria’s reign, as London is beset by the “Touched”: people, mostly women, who suddenly manifest abnormal abilities — some charming, some very disturbing.

    Among the Touched are Amalia True (played by Outlander‘s Laura Donnelly), a mysterious, quick-fisted widow, and Penance Adair (Red Rock‘s Ann Skelly), a brilliant young inventor. “They are the champions of this new underclass,” reads the synopsis, “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.”

    Watch a teaser below:

    The Nevers‘ cast also includes Olivia Williams (Dollhouse), James Norton (Grantchester), Tom Riley (Da Vinci’s Demons), Rochelle Neil (TV’s Das Boot), Eleanor Tomlinson (Poldark), Amy Manson (Once Upon a Time), Pip Torrens (The Crown), Denis O’Hare (American Horror Story), Zackary Momoh (Seven Seconds), Elizabeth Berrington (Sanditon), Kiran Sawar (Pure), Anna Devlin, Viola Prettejohn, Ella Smith (Babylon), Nick Frost (Into the Badlands) and Ben Chaplin (The Letter for the King).

    Whedon — who stepped away from the day-to-day of the project back in November, saying he was “genuinely exhausted” — created the series and executive-produced it with Bernadette Caulfield, Ilene S. Landress, Doug Petrie, Jane Espenson and Philippa Goslett.

    Maybe it's just the trailer but it looks fairly generic

        I'd definitely give it a go. The idea of the superpowers is pretty generic. There are so many shows where you have the outcast who has powers that make those without feel unsettled etc, but it could still be a good example of it. So I'd like to give it a try.
