THE NEVERS Finally Gets its Remaining S1 Episodes; Just Not on HBO

TheNevers_CompleteS1Now we are not going to take up the habit of pointing out where all the old or recently purged HBO content is landing these days, but we did want to make an exception for THE NEVERS. Why? Well, because it was unceremoniously dumped and forgotten halfway through its first season. Remember that? That season is finally complete and Tubi has it all.  

It was the science-fiction drama created by Joss Whedon, who bowed out after a scandal, that was set in Victorian London and followed a group of people, mostly women, known as the Touched, who suddenly manifested abnormal abilities. Among them were Amalia True, a mysterious and quick-fisted widow, and her best TheNevers_CompletePic1friend Penance Adair, a brilliant inventor. The series completed production on the first five of its ten-episode order before production was shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic and at some point, was able to get a sixth episode to us. HBO aired the first six from April 11 through May 16 of 2021 and HBOWatch reviewed them. We were then promised that the back episodes (eventually beefed up to a total of twelve) would be on the way and then, we waited. And then the show was purged before we ever got the chance to see the remaining set.  

So, if you followed the show and were disappointed in any way that you did not get to see THE NEVERS play out then you can head over to Tubi to see episodes 07 – 12 now joined with the first six installments. The site TVLine had an opportunity to talk with executive producer Philippa Goslett about the series. Below are a few excerpts from that interview:  

TVLINE: The last episode that aired (May 16, 2021, on HBO) was a complete departure from everything we’d seen before — futuristic and confusing. [But] at the end of that episode, True told Adair that it was time to tell the girls at the school everything. 

GOSLETT: Yes, #6 (written by Jane Espenson and directed by Zetna Fuentes) was an intense episode! Up until then it looked like Amalia’s mission was to save the Touched of Victorian London, but now we know it may also be mysteriously linked to the future of humanity itself. 

TVLINE: I’m also interested to know whether the new episodes will at all ease viewers — who won’t have seen the show since Spring of 2021 — back into the story at all, or if it’ll just chug along and trust that people will be able to keep up. TheNevers_CompletePic

GOSLETT: The new episodes will continue with many of the storylines set up in the first half of the show (which will also be streaming on Tubi), so a rewatch of those would be ideal. But Episode 7 will ease you in to some degree. After all, Amalia did promise to tell the orphans the truth about “everything”… for better or for worse. 

TVLINE: Lastly, will the finale leave fans frustrated, if this turns out to be it? Are there big cliffhangers, or is there a degree of completion to this part of the story? 

GOSLETT: I think Episode 12 brings all our storylines home to roost in ways which will feel satisfyingly cathartic. There are definitely story elements and character dynamics there which were intended to push into future series [seasons], but they would have been starting a new chapter of The Nevers. I believe that we bring this one to what feels like a natural close.

Joining Ep. #01 “Pilot, Ep. #02 “Exposure”, Ep.#03 “Ignition”, Ep. #04 “Undertaking”, Ep. #05 “Hanged” and Ep. #06 “True” are -Ep. #07, “It’s a Good Day”, Ep. #08 “I Don’t Know Enough About You”, Ep. #09, “Fever”, Ep# 10, “Alright, Okay, You Win”, Ep. #11, “Ain’t We Got Fun” and Ep. #12 “I’ll Be Seeing You”. The cast of The Nevers also includes Olivia Williams, James Norton, Tom Riley, Rochelle Neil, Eleanor Tomlinson, Amy Manson, Pip Torrens, Denis O’Hare, Zackary Momoh, Elizabeth Berrington, Kiran Sawar, Anna Devlin, Viola Prettejohn, Ella Smith, Nick Frost, and Ben Chaplin. And in addition to Goslett, the series’ EPs included creator Joss Whedon, Ilene Landress, Doug Petrie, Jane Espenson, Andrew Bernstein, Daniel S. Kaminsky and Peter Calloway.

So, a complete run of the first and only season of THE NEVERS awaits in its entirety over on Tubi, but I don’t see any reason why they couldn’t bring it back, even for a limited time, to HBO Max.

So frustrating to keep reading that it can be seen on Tubi, but it cannot. At least not on demand.

No, the old HBO content is not On demand right now. THE NEVERS was On Demand for a small window but is off now. They play on the WB TV Watchlist as a FAST channel, like Pluto. Here is a Tubi Press Release for further details.

Thanks for the article. Unfortunately The Nevers only streams live on Tubi at inconvenient times. I hope they will eventually move to streaming on demand.
