From the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon brings us an exciting warping of science-meets-historical fiction in a drama that equips women in the Victorian era with special abilities following a supernatural event. Hitting Stateside as a HBO Max exclusive, here's everything you need to know to watch The Nevers in this female-centric, empowering series.

With a star studded cast, expect familiar faces hailing from British shores, including Laura Donnelly (Outlander), Eleanor Tomlinson (Poldark), and James Norton (War & Peace and Little Women). 

The genre-bending series from HBO Max will follow women granted 'abnormal abilities, from the wondrous to the disturbing' over ten episodes, as this group of misfits work to protect themselves against a force hellbent on destroying their kind. 

Setting you back $14.99 a month, HBO Max is certainly more expensive than other streaming services out there like Disney Plus. However, it's worth noting how much content you'll be able to stream on HBO Max with a whole host of TV shows to binge, as well as movies. Want more of that British grit? You can watch I May Destroy You from the fantastic mind of Michaela Coel. HBO Max customers will also benefit from all Warner Bros 2021 movie releases, coinciding with their theatrical release, including titles like Dune and Judas and the Black Messiah.

With the first six episodes set to drop weekly every Sunday, the final four episodes meet some uncertainty, dates yet to be determined as production was affected by the pandemic. Exclusive to HBO Max, find out how to watch The Nevers elsewhere around the globe.
