Cursed on Netflix

‘Cursed’: Devon Terrell, Gustaf Skarsgard, Lily Newmark & More Join Arthurian Netflix Series

Huzzah! Netflix has unveiled the cast for its forthcoming original series Cursed which will begin production this month. Joining previously announced Katherine Langford are Devon Terrell (Barry), Gustaf Skarsgård (Westworld, Vikings), Peter Mullan (Ozark), Lily Newmark (Temple, Sex Education), Shalom Brune-Franklin (The State, Our Girl), Daniel Sharman (Fear the Walking Dead, Medici), Sebastian Armesto (Poldark, Broadchurch), Emily Coates (Flack), Catherine Walker (Versailles, The Delinquent Season) and Billy Jenkins (The Crown, Holmes & Watson, Humans).

Last year, Deadline exclusively reported the news that comic book writer/artist Frank Miller and writer/producer Tom Wheeler were teaming for the original drama series. The streaming giant gave a 10-episode order to the project, which will be based on Miller and Wheeler’s upcoming illustrated book of the same name. It will be published in fall 2019 by Simon & Schuster. This is believed to be the first time the same creative team will be writing a book and TV series based on it simultaneously as they get to explore the characters from the book in more detail on screen.

Zetna Fuentes (Ray Donovan, Jessica Jones) is set to direct and serve as an executive producer on the first two episodes. The series is a re-imagining of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of the young woman, played by Langford, who would become the Lady of the Lake. Cursed explores timely, familiar themes including obliteration of the natural world, religious zeal and oppression, senseless war and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible.

Miller and Wheeler will serve as executive producers. Wheeler will also be showrunner and writer. Alex Boden (Sense8, Cloud Atlas) is producer and Silenn Thomas is co-executive producer.

Small blurb, looks like filming will wrap this September.


Cursed (Netflix)
13 Reasons Why’s Katherine Langford is taking the lead in Netflix’s Cursed, which is based on the Lady of the Lake, the Arthurian legend. In a reimagining of the tale, Langford’s teen heroine and her “mysterious” gift are destined to become the Lady, and she unexpectedly teams up with “a young mercenary” named Arthur, after her mother dies, to find Merlin and give him his sword. This is less of a buddy comedy and more of a life-or-death quest.

What’s the production status? It’s chugging along! It’ll be filming until September, and other confirmed cast members include Devon Terrell and Gustaf Skarsgård. (Yup, those Skarsgårds.) Frank Miller (Sin City) and Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots) are spearheading the adaptation.
