"What if the sword chooses a queen."

The tale of Arthur and Excalibur is re-imagined in the upcoming Netflix series, Cursed.

Based on the book by Thomas Wheeler the story is told through the eyes of Nimue (Katherine Langford), a young woman 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 humble mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther.
