‘The Nevers’ Preview
The first six episodes of “The Nevers” will air spring 2021 on HBO with the following six episodes to air at a later date yet to be announced.
The series is set in Victorian London where a supernatural event gives people — mostly women — supernatural abilities. The HBO description reads:
But no matter their particular “turns,” all who belong to this new underclass are in grave danger. It falls to mysterious, quick-fisted widow Amalia True (Laura Donnelly) and brilliant young inventor Penance Adair (Ann Skelly) to protect and shelter these gifted “orphans.” To do so, they will have to face the brutal forces determined to annihilate their kind.
The main cast is as follows:
- Olivia Williams as Lavinia Bidlow, “the wealthy benefactress funding the orphanage for Amalia’s outcasts, who are also known as the Touched.”
- James Norton as Hugo Swann, “the rich and irreverent proprietor of a den of iniquity.”
- Tom Riley as Augustus “Augie” Bidlow, “Lavinia’s sweet, awkward, younger brother with a secret of his own.”
- Pip Torrens as Lord Gilbert Massen, “a high-ranking government official leading the crusade against our heroines.”
- Ben Chaplin as Inspector Frank Mundi, “who’s torn between his police duties and moral compass.”
- Denis O’Hare as Edmund Hague, “a deranged doctor searching for the source of the powers.”
- Amy Manson as Maladie, a “tortured, murderous” woman who “derives power from pain.”
The first episode is titled “Pilot” and its description reads, “Three years after an inexplicable event suddenly equips them with extraordinary abilities, Amalia True and Penance Adair work to protect their kind from widespread, deepening antipathy. Meanwhile, police inspector Frank Mundi investigates a string of murders at the hands of a reportedly Touched and highly dangerous serial killer named Maladie.”
Episode two, titled “Exposure,” airs on April 18 and its description reads, “With the city reeling from Maladie’s opera debut, Mundi takes a personal stake in tracking her down, while Amalia launches an investigation of her own. Meanwhile, the charitable Lavinia Bidlow seeks to destigmatize the Touched at a society event, Hugo Swann enlists Lavinia’s younger brother Augie to help monetize his illicit enterprise, and a deranged doctor conducts a series of experiments.”
“The Nevers” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
