Adapted from Frank Miller and Thomas Wheeler’s book by the same name, Cursed is a reiamgination of the Arthurian legend told through the eyes of Nimue (Katherine Langford, you might remember her from 13 Reason Why). She is a young woman with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake. The story shows how after the death of her mother she joins forces with charming mercenary Arthur on a mission to save her people and find Merlin to deliver the ancient sword.
The trailer begins with a scene where people from Nimue’s village are being slaughtered. These people kill the kinds of her as magic runs through them. They are on the lookout for the legendary sword which chooses its rightful King. The big question raised by Katherine Langford is what if the sword chooses a queen. For that we would have to wait till 17th of July when all the episodes of this series will be available on Netflix.
Cast : Katherine Langford, Devon Terrell, Gustaf Skarsgard, Sebastian Armesto, and Matt Stokoe.
