There’s a bit of steampunk and a lot of X-Men-like energy in “The Nevers,” a semi-comic action-adventure series created by Joss Whedon, the man behind “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Firefly.” Whedon’s contributions have been downplayed by HBO’s promotional departments, in part because he left the production in the middle of its first season — and perhaps because of recent accusations of mental abuse from his past employees. Nevertheless, “The Nevers,” set in Victorian Britain, very much feels like one of his shows, with its alternately angsty and witty characters. Laura Donnelly plays Amalia True, a superhero who leads a team of strange and powerful women referred to by London aristocrats as “the touched.” As the ladies tackle supernatural phenomena, they also clash with an establishment that wants to keep them marginalized, because of what they can do and because of who they are.

The Nevers - HBO (April 11)
Throughout its development process, the biggest thing going for HBO's fantasy quasi-superhero drama The Nevers was that it was created by that other Justice League director Joss Whedon, who has since fallen from pop culture grace after allegation-filled backlash from female stars he worked with in the past. In the face of all that BTS drama, The Nevers is a female-led adventure blended with science fiction, Victorian horror, and dark humor to make up a strange (and expensive-looking) mystery that will no doubt earn a loyal and sizable fanbase.

The most notable new release for HBO Max this month is the HBO series The Nevers. This show, created by Joss Whedon, is set in a 19th century steampunk London and finds a sizable portion of the population (predominantly women) having been “Touched” by mysterious paranormal powers. Den of Geek
