Although HBO' sci-fi drama series The Nevers will broadcast on HBO Max this coming summer, no date has yet been confirmed. We had the very first exciting glimpse of the show in December, and The Nevers continues to be on the radar of a number of online magazines and new outlets, including Town and Country, Buzzfeed, SF Gate, and Newsweek - they seem as excited as we are about this historical drama featuring inspiring female characters. Tom Riley will play Augustus Bidlow in the series created by and directed by Joss Whedon. HBO has updated the series synopsis, which makes the characters and show even more intriguing!

The Nevers: This highly-anticipated sci-fi drama follows a group of women with unusual powers in late Victorian Era London. Starring a who’s-who of British television actors, including Poldark‘s Eleanor Tomlinson and Outlander‘s Laura Donnelly, the series counts several Buffy the Vampire alumni among its producers (including the creator of both shows Joss Whedon, who stepped down from running The Nevers earlier this year). Debuts on HBO in summer 2021. Parade
The Nevers: HBO Max, Summer 2021 Like most TV productions in 2020, “The Nevers” hasn’t exactly gone to plan. A sci-fi drama set in London in the Victorian age, the show revolves around a group of women referred to as “The Touched” who develop superpowers and use them to champion lower class people. The main snag is that the series lost their showrunner/writer/director/executive producer Joss Whedon of the “Avengers” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” fame, a departure he attributed to the difficulties of working through the pandemic. Still the show must go on, and we got our first preview of the show in HBO’s 2021 lineup trailer. SF Gate
