The moment that it was announced that there was going to be a TV adaptation of Cursed, we all knew that we had to move it to the top of our TBRs. Now that we’ve read the book (and loved it), we’re even more excited to see this awesome reimagining of the Arthurian legend come to the silver screen. Here is everything we know so far about the show.

We will keep this post updated as more updates are released, so check back to make sure you’ve got the most up-to-date scoop on all there is to know about the Cursed TV show to get you as excited for its release on Netflix in 2020!

Everything We Know About The Cursed TV Show (So Far)

There will be 10 episodes!

In the article from Deadline, announcing that Netflix had acquired the rights to Cursed, they stated that the project will have a 10 episode arc. (But let’s be honest, we’re already hoping for more!)


Thomas Wheeler and Frank Miller are both executive producers on the show!

Thomas Wheeler, in addition to being one of the show’s creators, also wrote a lot of the episodes for the TV show but in this photo you can actually see that Thomas Wheeler’s brother wrote an episode, too! (ooooohhh)


Katherine Langford has been cast as the leading role.

Katherine Langford, from 13 Reasons Why and, more recently, Knives Out, has been cast as Nimue, who is more commonly known as the Lady of the Lake. We absolutely cannot wait to see her bring this amazing character to life!


Here’s a first look at Katherine Langford as Nimue.

Seriously, this cast keeps getting better and better! We cannot wait to see Devon Terrell take on the character of Arthur, a young mercenary who helps Nimue as he tries to find his honor and discover his destiny.

We cannot WAIT for the Man-Who-Would-Be-King to grace our screens! Don’t you agree?
