The Nevers season 1 gets a May launch date and an official trailer

When we covered Sky’s new supernatural series set in Victorian London a few weeks ago, we only had a teaser trailer. Good news! We’ve now got The Nevers season 1 premiere date and and official trailer. Here’s a reminder (from Sky) as to what the show is about:

August, 1896. Victorian London is rocked to its foundations by a supernatural event which gives certain people – mostly women – abnormal abilities, from the wondrous to the disturbing. But no matter their particular “turns,” all who belong to this new underclass are in grave danger. It falls to mysterious, quick-fisted widow Amalia True (Laura Donnelly) and brilliant young inventor Penance Adair (Ann Skelly) to protect and shelter these gifted “orphans.” To do so, they will have to face the brutal forces determined to annihilate their kind.

The ensemble cast also includes Olivia Williams, James Norton, Tom Riley, Rochelle Neil, Eleanor Tomlinson, Amy Manson, Pip Torrens, Denis O’Hare, Zackary Momoh, Elizabeth Berrington, Kiran Sawar, Anna Devlin, Viola Prettejohn, Ella Smith, Nick Frost and Ben Chaplin.

The Nevers part one of the first season is executive produced by Joss Whedon, Bernadette Caulfield, Ilene S. Landress, Doug Petrie, Jane Espenson and Philippa Goslett. Daniel S. Kaminsky co-executive produces.

It’s a substantial team, and we note Sky is referring to the first season. We imagine they fully expect a renewal, and on our reading of the runes, they may well be correct. The Nevers season 1 will arrive on 17 May with all episodes of part one available on Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW. Part two’s six episodes will follow at a later date, to be announced. Do check the official trailer.
