Netflix has revealed the official teaser trailer for their upcoming fantasy series, CURSED. The series is based on the New York best-selling book of the same name. Make sure you check it out below and let us know what you think!

Based on the New York Times bestselling book, CURSED is a re-imagination of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue, a young woman 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 humble 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.

CURSED is a coming-of-age story whose themes are familiar to our own time: the obliteration of the natural world, religious terror, senseless war, and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible.

The series stars Katherine Langford (“13 Reasons Why”, Knives Out) as Nimue, Devon Terrell (OpheliaBarry) as Arthur, Gustaf Skarsgård (“Westworld”, “Vikings”) as Merlin, Daniel Sharman (“Fear the Walking Dead“, “Teen Wolf”) as  Weeping Monk, Sebastian Armesto (Gold DiggerClose to the Enemy) as King Uther Pendragon, Matt Stokoe (“Jamestown”, “Misfits”) as Gawain, Lily Newmark (“Sex Education”, Pin Cushion) as Pym, Shalom Brune-Franklin (“Bad Mothers”, OtherLife) as Igraine, Emily Coates (FlackLadhood) as Sister Iris, Billy Jenkins (“The Crown”, Holmes & Watson) as Squirrel, Bella Dayne (Don’t Hang Up, “Troy: Fall of a City”) as Red Spear, and Peter Mullan (“Top of the Lake”, “Ozark”) as Father Carden.

The series is created and based on the book by Tom Wheeler (Dora and the Lost City of Gold, “The Cape”) and Frank Miller (Sin City, 300). Both serve as executive producers alongside Leila Gerstein (“Hart of Dixie”). Wheeler also serves as the showrunner of the series.

All ten episodes of CURSED are expecting to premiere on Netflix on July 17, 2020. Make sure to mark your calendars and ready your swords!
