‘Cursed’ is Coming to Netflix From Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler
Cursed isn't the Arthurian legend you remember
An all-new Netflix original drama series is coming to the popular video-streaming service next year. Netflix confirmed today that “Cursed,” a new adaptation based on the upcoming book of the same name, is going to be released in the fall of 2019.
“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.
Netflix ordered 10 episodes for the first season of “Cursed,” which comes from creators and Executive Producers Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler. Wheeler will write the companion book “Cursed,” which Miller will illustrate. Cursed will be published by Simon & Schuster in Fall 2019.
Netflix also confirmed this week that “One Day at a Time” has been renewed for Season 3. The third-season will include thirteen 30-minute episodes, and will also release on Netflix in 2019. The returning cast includes Justina Machado, Rita Moreno, Todd Grinnell, Stephen Toblowsky, Isabella Gomez and Marcel Ruiz. That series is a reimagining of the iconic Norman Lear sitcom, One Day at a Time is a hilarious and heartfelt comedy that follows three generations of a Cuban-American family sometimes-reluctantly cohabitating and navigating the ups and downs of life. A newly-single mom and military veteran journeys through the triumphs and tribulations that come with raising two strong-willed, mega-millennial children, all the while enlisting the “help” of her old-school mother and her building manager-turned-invaluable confidante. Through a contemporary lens, One Day at a Time offers a glimpse at what life looks like, in good times and bad.
