HBO Reveals 'The Nevers' Episode Titles



The Nevers races onto HBO & HBO Max next month, and today the official trailer for the series was released. Also revealed ahead of the series premiere are the titles for the front end of The Nevers Season 1 and the run time for the first three episodes.

Viewers are guaranteed three things from an HBO series: nudity, coarse language, and a blue colour palette. So it should come as no surprise that the accompanying ratings for each episode include adult content, language, nudity, strong sexual content and violence. We'll have to wait and see just how much blue is inserted into the series.



In addition to the show titles, HBO has provided an updated show synopsis. It reads as follows:


August, 1896. Victorian London is rocked to its foundations by a supernatural event which gives certain people — mostly women — abnormal abilities, from the wondrous to the disturbing. But no matter their particular “turns,” all who belong to this new underclass are in grave danger. It falls to mysterious, quick-fisted widow Amalia True (Laura Donnelly) and brilliant young inventor Penance Adair (Ann Skelly) to protect and shelter these gifted “orphans.” To do so, they will have to face the brutal forces determined to annihilate their kind.


Below are the episode titles as well as the writing and directing credits for Episodes S1A 01 - 106.

Season 1B's six episodes will follow at a later date, to be announced.


The titles seem pretty straightforward. Judging by the title, episode one will focus on the event that turns a portion of population into the Touched, while episode two tells the story of the Touched being exposed to the rest of society. One of the cinematographers working on The Nevers posted a courtyard Insta-story with nooses back when filming wrapped on Season 1A, so I imagine we'll be seeing those in episode five, with episode six, reasonably focusing on Amalia.


The Nevers premieres April 11th on HBOMax and worldwide April 12th.
