If you love the legend of Arthur or are a fan of Katherine Langford, who played Hannah Baker in ’13 Reasons Why’ (or maybe you’re a fan of both?), Netflix is releasing a new series this month that is sure to make you happy.
Based on the New York Times bestselling book by Tom Wheeler and Frank Miller, ‘Cursed’ is a re-imagination of the Arthurian legend told through the eyes of Nimue, a young woman 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 humble mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword.
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. Cursed is 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.

I’ve missed watching shows with magic and adventure, so this is definitely something I’m very excited about!
