The Nevers

Once upon a time, The Nevers would have been touted as Joss Whedon's show, but following the Justice League investigation into claims of a difficult set and Whedon's decision to step back from the series, there's no mention of him here. Still, the first full trailer bears some very Buffy touches, and not just because it features kick-ass women with powers.

In the last years of Victoria’s reign, London is beset by the 'Touched': people – mostly women – who suddenly manifest abnormal abilities – some charming, some very disturbing. Among them are Amalia True (Laura Donnelly), a mysterious, quick-fisted widow, and Penance Adair (Ann Skelly), a brilliant young inventor. They are the champions of this new underclass, making 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.

With Philippa Goslett taking over as showrunner, the cast also features Olivia Williams, James Norton, Tom Riley, Rochelle Neil, Eleanor Tomlinson, Amy Manson, Pip Torrens, Denis O’Hare and Nick Frost. It'll be on US screens via HBO Max, with the first six episodes of the original 10 ordered debuting in April. UK audiences should expect it to arrive on Sky Atlantic/Now TV around the same time.
