HBO have ordered new series “The Nevers” from Joss Whedon, delivering his first TV series in years. The science fiction drama has an official logline of “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.”
Whedon’s past work includes “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Angel”, and “Firefly”, which “The Nevers” sounds like it could be in the same realm of.
Whedon said about the new series: “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.”
No premiere date has been revealed as yet.
