While the final season of Game of Thrones was underwhelming for many viewers, there hasn't quite been a fantasy series that has managed to fill the void that the HBO series left behind. Netflix's Cursed aims to change that with violent, gory deaths and a leading lady with sword-wielding skills that could rival Arya Stark. The series is based on a graphic novel by Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler, and it's a prequel to the legend of King Arthur and the Excalibur sword.

But, Cursed is not a typical origin story as it centers around Nimue (Katherine Langford), the future Lady of the Lake, instead of Arthur himself. 

Teen Wolf and The Originals alum Daniel Sharman is starring in the series as the Weeping Monk, a mysterious villain-esque character with more than a few secrets to share.
