The Nevers on Sky Atlantic

The Nevers, from Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), begins on HBO Max and Sky Atlantic this spring.

However, given the recent controversy surrounding the show's creator, the upcoming sci-fi series is distancing itself ahead of the first season premiere this Sunday on HBO Max.

Read the official synopsis:

"In the last years of Victoria’s reign, London is beset by the “Touched”: people - mostly women - who suddenly manifest abnormal abilities - some charming, some very disturbing. Starring Laura Donnelly (Amalia True) and Ann Skelly (Penance Adair) as the champions of this new underclass, on a mission to make room for those whom history as we know it has no place."

For good or bad, The Nevers is seemingly filled with Whedon's established tropes (Buffy, Dollhouse) set against a steampunk backdrop. We'll know for sure when the series begins (I haven't been sent a press screener but might give Nick Smith a nudge).

The Nevers begins on HBO Max on 11th April and Sky Atlantic on 17th May.
