The cancellations of HBO Max’s “Westworld” and “The Nevers” marked the formal end of Victorian drama
HBO Max is currently producing The Nevers and Westworld, two additional original scripted series. Westworld and The Nevers are high-end Warner Bros. Discovery drama productions for HBO proper, and I hear they are likely to resurface on other company platforms, in contrast to others we have reported on, which are all comedies like Minx and Love Life and Sony TV’s Gordita Chronicles.
I’ve heard that Westworld and The Nevers would likely be offered in that format because WBD CEO David Zaslav has mentioned his intention to enter the rapidly expanding FAST channel space.
As one of the most well-known HBO dramas of the past decade, the removal of Westworld is surprising. The science fiction series was as of late dropped after four seasons so a portion of its fans might not have up to speed with all episodes before it’s eliminated.
The Nevers, created by Joss Whedon, has officially been cancelled. Its six-episode Season 1A aired in 2021, and the second part of the season has not yet been set. Whatever the show’s new home is, it will now end up there. According to sources, the plot has been developed in such a way that it comes to an end with Season 1B.
As Cutoff time detailed, the HBO Max record has been going through finish of-year monetary survey by WBD, prompting a huge number of cuts.
Westworld, an adaptation of the 1973 Michael Crichton film by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, received 54 nominations and won nine Primetime Emmys during its run. Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Thandie Newton, Tessa Thompson, Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, Luke Hemsworth, Aaron Paul, and a lot of other actors were in the cast. In 2020, Newton won the only acting Emmy for the series: Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. She played Maeve, a badass warrior who protected her robotic kin after beginning the show as a Western town android prostitute (called “Hosts” on the show).
The Nevers takes place in Victorian London and follows the Touched, a group of mostly female people who suddenly acquire abnormal abilities. Amalia True, played by Laura Donnelly, is a mysterious, quick-tempered widow, and Penance Adair, played by Ann Skelly, is her best friend and a brilliant inventor.
