What's new?

According to the synopsis shared by the network, here’s what viewers can expect from the show: “In the last years of Victoria’s reign, London is beset by the ‘Touched’: people – mostly women – who suddenly manifest abnormal abilities – some charming, some very disturbing. Among them are Amalia True (Laura Donnelly), a mysterious, quick-fisted widow, and Penance Adair (Ann Skelly), a brilliant young inventor. They are the champions of this new underclass, making a home for the Touched, while fighting the forces of…well, pretty much all the forces – to make room for those whom history as we know it has no place.”

Creators

The Victorian science-fiction drama is created by Joss Whedon. Meanwhile, Whedon, Bernadette Caulfield, Ilene S. Landress, Doug Petrie, Jane Espenson and Philippa Goslett serve as executive producers.
