Netflix’s New Trailer Damn seems to have a lot in common with Witcher, while Katherine Langford, playing Nimue, comes into possession of a powerful sword and finds herself struggling with all kinds of supernatural quirks.
The next series is based on the book by Tom Wheeler and Frank Miller. He reshapes Arthurian legends to make the Lady of the Lake the hero of history. In this story, Arthur is a mercenary who joins forces with Nimue as she learns to control her considerable powers and sets out to save her land from King Uther and the Red Paladins.
The series also stars Gustaf Skarsgård as a more threatening version of Merlin. In the trailer, Nimue is asked to bring the sword to Merlin. When Merlin appears, he reveals that he has lost his magic power and that the sword has taken away his abilities.
The 10 episodes of Damn will debut on Netflix on July 17.
