The Nevers on HBO has started production on the six-episode part two, originally delayed by the pandemic. The Joss Whedon-created sci-fi series stars Laura Donnelly and Ann Skelly.

It also has new showrunner Philippa Goslett, who takes over from Whedon. “Nevers” is about the “Touched” people of Victorian England, mostly women with unusual powers and abilities.

Here’s a look at other deals and upcoming projects:

  • Good Omens gets a second season at Amazon Prime Video. Starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen, the show begins shooting later this year in Scotland, written by creator Neil Gaiman. Season two is based on Gaiman’s and Terry Pratchett’s shared idea for a sequel to the original novel.

“The new season will explore storylines that go beyond the original source material to illuminate the uncanny friendship between Aziraphale, a fussy angel and rare book dealer, and the fast-living demon Crowley,” according to Amazon.
