Joss Whedon’s new sci-fi show, The Nevers, is coming on television in 2020. It will be broadcasted on HBO and Netflix as well. Information about the show is still undisclosed. The release date is also not known, but it is said to release in 2020.
Whedon told Deadline in an interview that he is very excited for The Nevers to come out on HBO. He cannot contain himself. The writer further says that this is the most ambitious he could get when writing, and The Nevers is one of best works. He was glad that HBO understood what he wanted the angles in the series. For the United Kingdom, a broadcaster is to be decided before announcing the release date for them.
With no trailer available, the plot details are scarce. IMDb synopsis says that the fictional drama is about Victorian women who find unusual abilities, dangerous enemies and missions that bring about a significant change in the world.
At Comic-Con 2018, Whedon said that The Nevers describe the group of people who are the odd ones out. They have unnatural abilities. Others think that they should not have existed. They are not the way they are meant to be. Whedon says that he does believe in it. He says you take something that people think is harmful and wear it as a badge of honor. Some things happen, and with whom these things happen should be given a place in the world.
Just like the show, the cast is also excellent.
