Joss Whedon, the Avengers director is finally headed back to TV and now it’s confirmed that he and HBO are going to launch a brand new TV series – The Nevers!
The series is titled – ‘The Nevers’ and up till now it’s being described as an “epic science fiction drama about a gang of Victorian women who find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies, and a mission that might change the world.”
The series was picked by the HBO and it won it in a bidding war against Netflix. And according to some confirmed sources its already given to direct order but it’s still not confirm how many episodes will it pan out.
When Whedon was interviewed on the matter, he said –
“I honestly couldn’t be more excited. The Nevers is maybe the most ambitious narrative I’ve created, and I can’t imagine a better home for it than HBO. Not only are they the masters of cinematic long-form, but their instant understanding of my odd, intimate epic was as emotional as it was incisive. It’s been too long since I created an entirely new fictional world, and the HBO team offer not just scope and experience, not just ‘prestige,’ but a passionate collaboration. I could go on, but — I’m impatiently grateful to say — I have work to do.”
His statement followed another statement by HBO’s Casey Bloys –
“We have long been fans of the incredibly talented and prolific Joss Whedon and we can’t think of a better project than The Nevers with which to welcome him to the HBO family. We look forward to meeting the strange, multifaceted characters of The Nevers, to learn their stories, see them in action and share them with our viewers. We’re honoured that Joss chose HBO as the place to build his ambitious new world and we are excited to get started.”
The overall series genre sounds like the classic Whedon TV. He also has been the head behind the classics like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Firefly, so The Nevers will probably get the hype from his name alone.
With the rumours already started to make rounds, let the fan discussion begin!
