Fan of re-tellings, King Arthur and co., or just always on the lookout for an upcoming Netflix series? You might be interested in the streaming service’s upcoming series, Cursed!

Based on an upcoming book by the same name, Cursed shows us a different portrayal of the beloved Arthurian legend as told through the eyes of the Lady of the Lake. Per the Netflix press release, “Cursed is a coming-of-age story with themes familiar to our own time: the obliteration of the natural world, religious zeal and oppression, senseless war and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible.”

Zetna Fuentes (Jessica Jones, Shameless) will serve as the director and executive producer for the first two episodes. Series creators are Frank Miller (Sin City, 300) and Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots, The Cape) who is also showrunner and writer. Wheeler will write the companion book with Miller set to illustrate. The book will be published by Simon & Schuster in Fall 2019.

The cast is as follows:

  • Devon Terrell (Barry)
  • Gustaf Skarsgård (Westworld, Vikings)
  • Daniel Sharman (Fear the Walking Dead, Medici)
  • Peter Mullan (Ozark)
  • Lily Newmark (Pin Cushion)
  • Shalom Brune-Franklin (The State, Our Girl)
  • Sebastian Armesto (Poldark, Broadchurch)
  • Emily Coates (Flack)
  • Catherine Walker (Versailles, The Delinquent Season)
  • Billy Jenkins (The Crown, Holmes & Watson)
  • Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why, Love, Simon). She will portray the lead role, Lady of the Lake.

Production on the series will soon begin in Wales and England this month, March 2019.

A release date has yet been announced, but given that the book is slated for this fall, this writer would assume around the same time.
