Joss Whedon’s The Nevers has been spinning its wheels in development at HBO for nearly a year by this point, but now we’ve finally received our first piece of casting news for the upcoming sci-fi effort.
Courtesy of Deadline, Laura Donnelly will be on headlining duties as Amalie True, a character described as the most damaged and reckless hero of her time. Donnelly is best known to genre fans for the likes of Beofwulf: Return to the Shieldlands and Outlander.
For The Nevers, Whedon is penning the series alongside his former Buffy the Vampire Slayer collaborators Jane Espenson and Doug Petrie. The Victorian England-set show will centre on a group of women who develop unique abilities.
As ever, expect more on The Nevers as we get it.
