Why It’s Underrated: A few years after making a splash as the breakout star of Netflix’s controversial teen drama series 13 Reasons Why, Katherine Langford returned to the streaming giant as the lead star of the buzzy fantasy drama series Cursed. Unlike Langford’s previous show, the newbie didn’t make as much noise in summer 2020. Without question, Cursed stands as one of the most underrated Netflix shows of 2020.

Based on the graphic novel of the same name by creators Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler, Cursed stars Katherine Langford as Nimue, a young woman whose destiny entails becoming the tragic Lady of the Lake. Nimue teams up with mercenary Arthur (Devon Terrell) and embarks on a mission to track down Merlin. During Nimue’s action-packed adventure, her heroism will raise her up as a symbol of courage and rebellion in the exciting coming-of-age tale.

Cursed began streaming its 10-episode first season in July 2020 as one of the many new offerings reaching for the attention of binge-watchers worldwide. The series earned mixed but mostly positive reviews from critics, as evidenced by its 68% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Whatever amount of buzz that surrounded the series didn’t sustain through the summer, and Cursed assumed its own destiny of becoming one of the year’s most underrated new shows.
