CURSED (L TO R) KATHERINE LANGFORD as NIMUE in episode 102 of CURSED Cr. LUDOVIC ROBERT/Netflix © 2020
The Netflix Original series, Cursed, is based on the novel by Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler. The medieval fantasy is very loosely based on the legend of King Arthur. The series had been waiting to be renewed for awhile. Now, we finally get the news that Cursed will not receive a season 2.
What The Hell Is This Show?
I watched Cursed around the time it was released and it was hard to finish. I found it confusing and not very exciting. It’s hard to be invested in characters whose names I’m familiar with, but are all over the place in the story. It wasn’t a retelling of the King Arthur story so why even use the names. The story would have been better if they used different names, but the story would still be messy. There was no chemistry between Nimue and Arthur. Also, why did The Weeping Monk kill his own kind with Father Carden and all these religious nuts then have a change of heart when it came to a single child? I didn’t read the Cursed book series, but I hope it’s better than this. I do enjoy books to movies or TV series, but this series was such a tangled mess.
Cursed came out on July 17, 2020. The series starred Katherine Langford, Devon Terrell, Gustaf Skarsgård, and Daniel Sharman as Nimue, Arthur, Merlin, and The Weeping Monk.
