HBO has canceled “The Nevers” midway through its debut season. Variety has learned that the Joss Whedon-produced sci-fi drama and the recently canceled HBO series “Westworld” will both be taken off HBO Max’s streaming service.
The second half of Season 1 of the Laura Donnelly and Ann Skelly-starring HBO series “The Nevers,” which debuted Part 1 of its first season in the spring of 2021, was scheduled to premiere. According to sources with direct knowledge of the issue, it’s feasible that the previously completed batch of episodes — which were finished by Philippa Goslett, the new showrunner who took over when Joss Whedon left before the show had begun — may be broadcast on another platform.
The Nevers, a new science fiction series by The Avengers director Joss Whedon, has been acquired by HBO. With the program, Whedon returns to television, where he initially found success with shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and Dollhouse.
According to a log line acquired by The Hollywood Reporter, The Nevers is an epic science fiction thriller about a group of Victorian ladies who discover they have unique skills, persistent foes, and a purpose that might transform the world.

The Nevers: Overview
The Nevers is a Joss Whedon-produced HBO science fiction drama television program. Executive producers on the project are Joss Whedon, Philippa Goslett, Doug Petrie, Jane Espenson, Ilene S. Landress, and Bernadette Caulfield. The show is produced by HBO and Mutant Enemy Productions. On April 11, 2021, the television show debuted. Twelve episodes, divided into two sections of six episodes each, make up the first season. The series was terminated in December 2022 before the back six episodes aired and were removed from the HBO Max collection on December 18, 2022.
The Victorian-era London setting of the series centers on a group of largely female characters known as the Touched who exhibit unusual powers out of the blue. Among them are Penance Adair, a talented inventor, and Amalia True, a secretive and cunning widow, and her closest friend. Following a bidding battle with rival networks and streaming providers like Netflix, HBO in June 2018 ordered the project straight to series. The first actress to join the series was Laura Donnelly in April 2019, and the rest of the cast followed in July 2019.
