This new fantasy series retells the Arthurian Legend with a woman as its hero

Ever wondered how the legendary tale of Excalibur would play out if it were told from the perspective of a female? Netflix’s upcoming series Cursed has all the answers for you.

Based on Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler’s illustrated novel, Cursed takes on the challenge of retelling the Arthurian Legend by asking: “What if the sword chose a queen?”
