The background of “Cursed” explains: Everything you need to know about the Arthurian legend
The new Netflix series “Cursed” is a real blessing for fantasy fans. Sword fights, great costumes and an exciting story. In essence, this is of course not new. On the contrary: there is a very old mythology in it.
After the end of the HBO series “Game Of Thrones”, fans who suddenly had to deal with nothing new from Westeros could still browse the novels by George R.R. Martin, the creator of the story. And in this case, of course, there is actually quite a bit of literature to be enjoyed (not to mention the two volumes in fmovies series, which are still outstanding).
However, anyone who has already seen the Netflix series “Cursed” is a bit on dry land. Because this project is based on a book (namely on the illustrated novel * by Tom Wheeler and “300” creator Frank Miller), but a sequel has not yet been written.
