Netflix is making moves with its new series Cursed, a reimagining of an Arthurian legend told through the eyes of Nimue, a teen who is destined to become the Lady of the Lake. After the death of her mother, Nimue partners with Arthur in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword.
The 10-episode series will star Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why), Devon Terrell (Barry), Gustaf Skarsgård (Westworld), Daniel Sharman (Fear the Walking Dead, Medici), Peter Mullan (Ozark), Lily Newmark (Pin Cushion), Shalom Brune-Franklin (The State, Our Girl), Sebastian Armesto (Poldark, Broadchurch), Emily Coates (Flack), Catherine Walker (Versailles, The Delinquent Season), and Billy Jenkins (The Crown).
Frank Miller (right, Sin City, 300) and Tom Wheeler (left, Puss in Boots, The Cape) are co-creators and executive producers of the series. Wheeler will also write the companion book Cursed, illustrated by Miller. The book will be published by Simon & Schuster this fall.
The series begins filming this month in England and Wales.
