The Cursed is a television series adaption of a novel written by Tom Wheelers and Frank Miller. It follows the story of an Arthurian Legend of the sword Excalibur, narrated by a young girl with a mysterious destiny. Netflix dropped the first part of this fantasy series in July 2020. When “Cursed” first aired on Netflix, it was the month’s most popular online series. It is further said that the streaming giant is not considering its renewal for another season. With that piece of information, fans are wondering if there would be a second edition of The Cursed? To know the answer, stick with it till the end of this blog.
The Cursed Season 1 overview
The plot focuses on “Nimue,” a little girl with the power to manipulate the plants in her environment. As a result, she was labeled as a witch in society. Her destiny is to become the lake’s, sad lady. Arthur, a teenage mercenary, joins her in her fight against the red paladin.
Her goal revolves around delivering the sword Excalibur. We witness “Nimue’s” character develop as she exhibits acts of heroism and bravery throughout her adventure.
The Cursed Season 1 Cast
Cursed stars Katherine Langford as “Nimue” in the major role. Devon Turell (Arthur), Gustaf Skarsgard (Merlin), Daniel Sharman (Weeping Monk Lancelot), Sebastian Armesto(King Uther), Lily Newmark (Pym), Peter Mullan (Father Carden), Shalom Brune-Franklim (sister Igraine), Bella Dayne (red spear), Matt Stokoe (Matt Stokoe) (Green knight).
Will there be season 2?
unfortunately, in July 2021, Netflix canceled the series. The reason behind this decision is still unknown. However, speculation is that the show failed to get the desired viewership numbers which led to this unexpected action. If the action drama gets picked by another platform or network, then there is a possibility of a second season. Having said that, we have no choice but to wait patiently for the renewal news. Additionally, the halt in production worldwide might push back the date of airing of The Cursed part two. Even so, we are optimistic that a piece of good news is coming sooner than later.
Will Cursed Season 2 Ever Happen?
In the aftermath of the news about Cursed, some loyal fans started campaigning for another streaming service to pick up the series, using the hashtag #SavedCursed on social media. However, the cast members have been released from their contracts and are free to pursue other projects, which makes any return seem unlikely. Although there was content planned for Cursed season 2, and season 1 ended on a major cliffhanger in which Nimue is shot and presumed dead, it seems that Netflix really did cancel Cursed for good. Likewise, avid Cursed fans have only one book to turn to, as Miller and Wheeler have yet to create a sequel for their original hit. However, Wheeler did hint in an Instagram post on July 9, 2021, that another novel could be in the works. The Netflix series Cursed will probably never get a season 2, but it had a good run while it lasted, and several of the actors have taken to social media to express their gratitude for being a part of the project since its cancellation.
