HBO Orders New Series ‘The Nevers’ From ‘Firefly,’ ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ Creator Joss Whedon
  |  @   |  

The creator of shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly, Joss Whedon, has a brand new show coming to HBO.

Instead of developing the series, which is titled The Nevers, ordering a pilot episode, and waiting to see that before deciding whether or not to order a full season, HBO has instead given a straight to series order to Whedon’s new show.

Not much is known about The Nevers yet, but it is described as a science fiction drama following a group of Victorian women who have unusual abilities, face relentless enemies, and are on a mission which could change the world.

Of the news, Whedon 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 longform, 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 offers 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.”

HBO programming president Casey Bloys also released a statement, saying:

“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 honored that Joss chose HBO as the place to build his ambitious new world and we are excited to get started.”

Multiple potential homes for the series were in the mix to land it, including Netflix, with HBO ultimately winning out over the others bidders.

Whedon not only created the show, but will be the showrunner and write, direct, and executive produce.

No cast or release window for The Nevers has been announced yet.
