“Cursed” is based on the book by Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler and told through the eyes of Nimue, played by Katherine Langford. She meets mercenary Arthur (Devon Terrell), who participates in his quest to find Merlin (Gustaf Skarsgard) and deliver to him an old sword called Devil’s Tooth.
At the end of the first season, the main character’s fate remains unknown on screen when she was shot by Sister Iris’ (Emily Coates) arrows and fell into the water. However, it is revealed in the book that she survives. When we talk about Iris, she and the Red Paladins are likely to continue to fight with the Fey people; fans were hoping that another season might reveal more of her abilities. Morgana’s (Shalom Brune-Franklin) future is also an interesting question mark as she has great villain potential and viewers are wondering if Gawain (Matt Stokoe) will remain dead, what about Nimue’s magic and all.
Another twist from the finale that remains unexplored forever is the true identity of the weeping monk (Daniel Sharman) who turns out to be Lancelot. Viewers would like a redemption bow for the assassin, who in the original story is Arthur’s faithful knight and companion (yet until Guinevere). Then, of course, there’s Arthur himself, because fans know little about what’s going to happen to him in the future, except that none of it seems to be close to happening yet.
The show initially seemed to be popular, appeared on Netflix’s Top 10 list and became the streamer’s most popular script series (via We got this covered); there were even rumors of a spin-off for Skarsgards Merlin, pr CinemaBlend. Unfortunately, Netflix is notoriously shut up about its decisions, and fans may never know exactly why “Cursed” was pulled out.
