A new trailer just dropped for Netflix’s Cursed, a series adaptation of the novel by Tom Wheeler and Frank Miller of the same name. In the show, which stars Katherine Langord, Devon Terrell, and Gustaf Skarsgård, we get to see a whole new take on Arthurian legend as we explore the story behind Nimue, the woman destined to become the Lady of The Lake.
Based on the upcoming book of the same name, Cursed is a re-imagining of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue, a teenage heroine with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake. After her mother’s death, she finds an unexpected partner in Arthur, a young mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther.
