Cursed is an American fantasy drama streaming television series that premiered on Netflix on July 17, 2020. It is based on the illustrated novel of the same name by Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler. The set location of the series is the United Kingdom. In July 2021, the series was canceled after one season.
Cursed is described as “a re-imagining of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue, a young heroine 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 young mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword to him.
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.” In another piece on that site, Andreeva calls the show “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”.
Cursed took a little-known character from the tales of King Arthur and reimagined her as the hero of the story. Katherine Langford’s Nimue, better known as the mythical Lady of the Lake, is the wielder of the Sword of Power in Cursed. Based on the novel by Tom Wheeler and Frank Miller, the live-action Netflix adaptation is full of valiant fights, wicked villains, heroic adventures, and the exploration of corrupting power and acceptance.
