The work of Amalia and Penance is over. Deadline reports that both Westworld and The Nevers are leaving the HBO Max streaming service. Westworld was cancelled earlier this year after four seasons on HBO. The Nevers, which has been M.I.A. since 2021, has now also been cancelled.
An HBO sci-fi drama series created by Joss Whedon, The Nevers TV show stars Laura Donnelly, Ann Skelly, Olivia Williams, James Norton, Tom Riley, Pip Torrens, Ben Chaplin, Denis O’Hare, Amy Manson, Rochelle Neil, Zackary Momoh, Eleanor Tomlinson, Elizabeth Berrington, Anna Devlin, Kiran Sonia Sawar, Viola Prettejohn, Ella Smith, Vinnie Heaven, and Nick Frost. In the year 1896, Victorian London is rocked by a supernatural event that 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 (Donnelly) and brilliant young inventor Penance Adair (Skelly) to protect and shelter these gifted “orphans.” To do so, they have to face the brutal forces determined to annihilate their kind.
The show was given a straight-to-series order in 2018, and filming began in 2019. Filming of half of the season was completed before production had to be shut down in early 2020 due to the pandemic. Filming resumed and was completed in the fall of that year.
It was announced in February 2021 that the season would be split into two parts, with the first six episodes of The Nevers airing in April and May. They averaged a 0.09 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 532,000 viewers. Word was that the remaining six episodes would be released sometime this year, but that never happened.
We now know that The Nevers isn’t returning to HBO after all. The series is being pulled off of HBO Max, and the complete 12-episode season is expected to end up on some other Warner Bros. Discovery platform. It’s unclear what that will be, but we’ll report that information when it’s announced.
On the plus side, word is that the remaining six episodes of The Nevers were crafted in such a way that they will wrap up the show’s story.
What do you think? Have you enjoyed The Nevers TV show on HBO? Are you sorry to hear that the show’s being pulled off HBO Max and that there won’t be a second season?
So annoyed that this excellent series has been cancelled – great cast, fascinating premise and THIS is what they do while reality drivel rules??
The Nevers is a brilliantly crafted show and it would be a shame not continue the story and build the characters
Loved The Nevers. Please make another season.
This is a brilliant show and it makes me wonder who decides the fate of a series that was very popular very well written high quality production and attention to detail that rivals Poirot
Bring it back please
Can’t believe you did not at least Finish the first season. I loved it !

I was looking forward to seeing the next season. I think it is a great show and had legs for atleast 2 more seasons. Is there anyway to write in and get it put back on?
I really enjoyed this show, I’ve rewatched the series anticipating season 2. It’s such a shame it’s been cancelled.
I loved it.
My wife and I really enjoyed the Nevers and have been constantly checking for its return. It’s a shame to find out it’s been cancelled.
I have cancelled my HBO Max subscription. The Nevers was the only reason I had it.
As soon as I know where I can watch the final episodes I’m canceling my HBO Max subscription
I’m looking forward to seeing the remaining episodes of The Nevers. My therapist says it would help with my spiritual progress.
