What is Cursed? Here’s an overview:
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.
The series was adapted by comic book legend Frank Miller and screenwriter Tom Wheeler and stars Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why), Devon Terrell (Barry) and Gustaf Skarsgård (Vikings).
