WATCH: Trailer arrives with release date for Joss Whedon’s The Nevers

We finally have our first trailer and release fate for Joss Whedon’s The Nevers from HBO Max.

The concept behind the new series is like a cross between The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and X-Men and finds a group of women – led by Amalia (Laura Donnelly) and Penance (Ann Skelly) – with superpowers – known as the touched – trying to find their way and fight evil in Victorian England.

Although Whedon exited the show in November and Mary Magdalene and How to Talk to Girls at Parties’ Philippa Goslett was hired last week to take over as showrunner.

Society fears what it cannot understand. Experience the power of The Nevers.

In the last years of Victoria’s reign, London is beset by the “Touched”: people — mostly women — who suddenly manifest abnormal abilities, some charming, some very disturbing. Among them are Amalia True (Laura Donnelly), a mysterious, quick-fisted widow, and Penance Adair (Ann Skelly), a brilliant young inventor.

They are the champions of this new underclass, making a home for the Touched, while fighting the forces of… well, pretty much all the forces — to make room for those whom history as we know it has no place.

The Nevers arrives in April on HBO Max

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
