    Thought I’d create this thread as I expect a trailer will be released over the next couple of months for this.

    Twelve more cast members have been set for The Nevers, the new sci-fi series from Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the screenwriter behind The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. 

    The Nevers is an epic science fiction drama about a gang of Victorian women, known as “The Touched,” who find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies, and a mission that could change the world.

    Laura Donnelly (Outlander, Tolkein) leads the series as Amalia True, the most reckless, impulsive, emotionally damaged hero of her time. Nick Frost (Fighting With My Family, Into the Badlands) portrays Declan Orrun, aka the Beggar King, a low-level crime lord who’s perfectly happy to help Amalia and her cause — and equally happy to sell them out. Denis O’Hare (HBO’s Big Little Lies and True Blood) plays Dr. Edmund Hague: a gifted American surgeon who uses his skills in the coldest, most brutal way possible. Olivia Williams (Rushmore) takes the role of Lavinia Bidlow, wealthy spinster and champion of “The Touched” who funds the orphanage where Amalia and many of them live. 

    Also joining the cast are actors Ann Skelly (Kissing Candace) as Penance Adair, Amalia’s dearest friend and one of the first women to join her cause; Zackary Momoh (Seven Seconds) who portrays Doctor Horatio Cousens, a successful West Indian physician whose fortunes took a dark turn when he met Amalia and discovered his own ability, but now works with her and the Beggar King; Tom Riley (Dark Heart) playing Lavinia’s sweet, disarming younger brother Augustus “Augie” Bidlow, a keen ornithologist who’s more than happy to let his older sister take the reins of the family fortune; and James Norton (Grantchester) as pansexual posh boy Hugo Swann, Augie’s nefarious best friend and secret club owner who’s fascinated by “The Touched.” 

    Rounding the ensemble out are Amy Manson (Once Upon a Time) who joins the cast as Maladie, a woman so warped by a power she can’t understand that she’s driven to live underground, run a gang and go on an infamous murder spree. Rochelle Neil (Episodes) takes the role of Annie Carbey (aka Bonfire), a career criminal with the ability to control fire who came up rough and stayed that way; Eleanor Tomlinson (Poldark) is Mary Brighton, a gentle but resilient woman who pursued her dream of singing on stage despite a disappointing career and broken engagement; Ben Chaplin (Snowden) serves as the big, gruff and deeply moral Detective Frank Mundi, a man caught between the powerful (who ignore the laws of the land) and “The Touched” (who ignore the laws of physics.); and Pip Torrens (The Crown) as the staunch, unflappable Lord Massen, a former General who’s determined to protect the established order from these strange people.

    The show has already been filmed and is scheduled to arrive on HBO in early 2021. Do we think this can land at the 2021 Emmys with nominations like Westworld did at the 2017 Emmys?

    FYC Emmys : THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL, SUCCESSION AND THE CROWN IN ALL CATEGORIES. Tony Shalhoub ("Maisel"), Cate Blanchett ("Mrs. America"), Matthew Macfadyen, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook ("Succession"), Tracey Ullman ("Mrs. America") and Louis Gossett Jr. ("Watchmen")

    Not all the episodes have been filmed. At least two have, but possibly four according to a recent interview with Denis O’Hare.

    I’m really unsure of its Emmys chances- depends on the execution- but I’m excited to watch it. Sounds promising.

    With Bernadette Caulfield (Game of Thrones) as the executive producer and Seamus McGarvey as the cinematographer for a couple of the episodes, the chances of this show being executed well are pretty good. Plus there’s Joss.
