Did You Know?


Joss Whedon created the series and wrote and directed most of the first six x of twelve episodes. But he stepped down in November 2020 after filming for episode 6 was completed and HBO tapped Philippa Goslett as the production's new showrunner and executive producer. Whedon wrote in a statement after his departure: "This year of unprecedented challenges has impacted my life and perspective in ways I could never have imagined, and while developing and producing The Nevers has been a joyful experience, I realize that the level of commitment required moving forward, combined with the physical challenges of making such a huge show during a global pandemic, is more than I can handle without the work beginning to suffer. I am genuinely exhausted, and am stepping back to martial my energy towards my own life, which is also at the brink of exciting change. I am deeply proud of the work we have done; I'm grateful to all my extraordinary cast and collaborators, and to HBO for the opportunity to shape yet another strange world. The Nevers is a true labor of love, but after two-plus years of labor, love is about all I have to offer. It will never fade." Sources said he may have been forced to leave due to the several accusations against him about creating a hostile work environment in other films and shows, though there were no reports against him for this series, See more »

Every Episode Needs to Be Watched Twice
3 May 2021 | by kimmock-55731See all my reviews

This isn't a lazy show- there is so much work put into the scenes, characters and acting and it shows in the finished product. So much better then reviews gave it. The episodes are so dense that to catch everything I've found myself rewatching every show. It's a wonderful, escapist, smart show. Can't wait to see where it takes me.

And doesn't that opening theme song remind you of THE MAGICIANS?
