HBO’s latest original series imagines what Victorian London would have been like with superpowers and we have all the details on how you can watch The Nevers on TV or online.
Although The Nevers takes place in London in the year 1896 at the beginning of the end of the Victorian Era, a supernatural event which occurred three years prior sets the premise for the show. Following the event, all of “The Touched” woke up with a power and these abnormal abilities range from wondrous to disturbing.
However, what sets The Nevers apart from other shows where the characters suddenly wake up with powers is the fact that the majority of The Touched are women. From the show’s trailer, it’s clear that they represent a threat to the establishment and the men in power at the time. The Touched are also viewed as London’s new underclass and it’s up to the quick-fisted widow Amalia True (Laura Donnelly) and the brilliant young inventor Penance Adair (Ann Skelly) to protect and shelter them.
The show features an ensemble cast which also includes Olivia Williams, James Norton, Tom Riley, Rochelle Neil, Eleanor Tomlinson, Amy Manson, Pip Torrens, Denis O’Hare, Zackary Momoh, Elizabeth Berrington, Kiran Sawar, Anna Devlin, Viola Prettejohn, Ella Smith, Nick Frost and Ben Chaplin.
The Nevers was originally supposed to have 12 episodes in its first season but when its creator Joss Whedon exited the series last year, HBO decided to break it up into two parts. As a result, the first six episodes of the show that make up part one will premiere beginning in April while the six episodes in part two of the series’ first season will air at a later date.
Whether you’re a fan of Victorian England or just want to see what it would like with a sci-fi reimagining, we’ll show you exactly how to watch the new HBO original series The Nevers from anywhere in the world.
