Joss Whedon will return to sci-fi TV with HBO’s The Nevers
Joss Whedon, the creator of acclaimed TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly, has been announced as showrunner for a new HBO series titled The Nevers.
The Friday announcement confirms Whedon as "executive producer, showrunner, writer, and director" for his first-ever non-network TV series, following his RECENT executive producer and co-creator duties on the ongoing series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. HBO describes the show as "an epic science-fiction drama about a gang of Victorian women who find themselves with unusual abilities," and its statement makes no bones about Whedon's legacy by claiming it "follows in the footsteps of Buffy."
HBO did not announce a release window, actors, or other principal members of the cast and crew.
