Plot Synopsis

Set in Victorian London, THE NEVERS opens in August, 1896, when the city is rocked to its foundations by a supernatural event which gives certain people -- mostly women -- abnormal abilities, from the wondrous to the disturbing. But no matter their particular "turns," all who belong to this new underclass are in grave danger. It falls to mysterious, quick-fisted widow Amalia True and brilliant young inventor Penance Adair to protect and shelter these gifted "orphans." To do so, they will have to face the brutal forces determined to annihilate their kind. Part 1 of THE NEVERS' first season begins with six episodes, starting Sunday, April 11 through May 16, 2021. The six episodes of Part 2 will follow at a later date. Episodes include:
