Well THIS is a mess!

Series premise from Wiki: an epic science fiction drama about a gang of Victorian women who find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies, and a mission that might change the world.

After developing the idea and working on the show, he's quit/been fired.

His statement:

“This year of unprecedented challenges has impacted my life and perspective in ways I could never have imagined, and while developing and producing The Nevers has been a joyful experience, I realize that the level of commitment required moving forward, combined with the physical challenges of making such a huge show during a global pandemic, is more than I can handle without the work beginning to suffer. I am genuinely exhausted, and am stepping back to martial my energy towards my own life, which is also at the brink of exciting change. I am deeply proud of the work we have done; I’m grateful to all my extraordinary cast and collaborators, and to HBO for the opportunity to shape yet another strange world. The Nevers is a true labor of love, but after two plus years of labor, love is about all I have to offer. It will never fade.”

HBO's rather frosty one:

“We have parted ways with Joss Whedon. We remain excited about the future of The Nevers and look forward to its premiere in the summer of 2021.”

And Ray Fisher (Cyborg in Justice League) says

This was a decent first episode, the written, directed and produced by Joss Whedon made me :eyes:

It’s x-men mixed with Miss Peregrine and a couple more things. James Norton is woefully miscast, he just doesn’t have that energy. Also that tits shot was so unnecessary.

It’s not perfect, it does this thing that annoys with supposed period pieces where everyone has 2020 values and understanding of social issues. It feels a bit pandering.
