Cursed, Netflix’s re-imagining of the King Arthur legend from the perspective of the Lady of the Lake, has finally released a trailer! The 10 episode series follows Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why) as Nimue, who, according to Deadline, is
a teenage heroine with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake. After her mother’s death, she finds an unexpected partner in Arthur, a young mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword.
