Here's the official description of the show: "Nimue, after her mother's death, finds an unexpected partner in Arthur, a humble mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther."
Cursed is a coming-of-age story that will tackle on themes such as the obliteration of the natural world, religious terror, senseless war, and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible. It is slated to premiere around August 2020.
