Joss Whedon is headed back to television. Variety reports that HBO has ordered a series called The Nevers, which he will write and direct. It will be about a ‘gang of Victorian women who find themselves with unusual abilities,’ and who will face off against ‘relentless enemies.’
Whedon is the creator of the previous TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse. Alongside Maurissa Tancharoen and his brother Jed Whedon, he co-created the Marvel series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but Nevers would be his first solo TV project since Dollhouse in 2009

Jumping ahead.

Joss Whedon returning to TV with epic HBO sci-fi series

The Firefly and Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator, and The Avengers director, has an ‘epic’ new sci-fi series that was just greenlit by HBO.

Says Whedon, who will serve as showrunner: “I honestly couldn’t be more excited. The Nevers is maybe the most ambitious narrative I’ve created, and I can’t imagine a better home for it than HBO. Not only are they the masters of cinematic long-form, but their instant understanding of my odd, intimate epic was as emotional as it was incisive. It’s been too long since I created an entirely new fictional world, and the HBO team offer not just scope and experience, not just ‘prestige,’ but a passionate collaboration. I could go on, but ‘ I’m impatiently grateful to say ‘ I have work to do.”

HBO landed the project in a competitive situation. Netflix had also bid for the ‘The Nevers.’

“I honestly couldn’t be more excited,” Whedon said. “‘The Nevers’ is maybe the most ambitious narrative I’ve created, and I can’t imagine a better home for it than HBO.  Not only are they the masters of cinematic long-form, but their instant understanding of my odd, intimate epic was as emotional as it was incisive. It’s been too long since I created an entirely new fictional world, and the HBO team offer not just scope and experience, not just ‘prestige,’ but a passionate collaboration. I could go on, but — I’m impatiently grateful to say — I have work to do.”
