Why The Nevers Season 2 Got Cancelled?

Don't miss

The Nevers, a sci-fi drama from Joss Whedon that premiered on HBO, will not continue on HBO Max, according to TVLine. The show had a 12-episode order, but only six episodes have been released so far. Variety reports that the remaining episodes might find a home on another streaming service.

The show took place in late Victorian London, where a mysterious phenomenon gave some people, mostly women, unusual powers. Some of these powers were useful, some were frightening.

The main characters were Amalia True (played by Laura Donnelly from Outlander) and Penance Adair (played by Ann Skelly from Red Rock). They were the leaders of the Touched, a group of people with powers who faced discrimination and danger from various enemies. The show’s official synopsis says that they “make 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.”

The show also featured 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) in its cast.

Whedon created the series and was an executive producer along with Bernadette Caulfield, Ilene S. Landress, Doug Petrie, Jane Espenson and Philippa Goslett. Goslett replaced Whedon as the showrunner after he left the project in Nov. 2020, citing exhaustion.
