So far, Netflix has not yet officially commented on further episodes of “Cursed”, after all, the series has not been running long. Above all, the end of the first season speaks definitely for a sequel …

The end of “Cursed” is just the beginning

The stuff “Cursed” is made of is anything but new. The Arthurian legend, which is closely interwoven with the stories about the magician Merlin and the sword Excalibur, is one of the most important mythologies of Britain, goes back to the 9th century of literary history and is still reinterpreted to this day – both in books, as well as in films and series.

The “Cursed” series also contains some elements of the ancient saga, although it is based on the modern illustrated novel by Tom Wheeler and “300” creator Frank Miller *. In fact, there is still no sequel to the book – a second season of the series is still not unlikely.

What happened to Nimue in “Cursed”?

At the end of the first season, everything looks like the young heroine Nimue, who, together with Arthur, brings a precious sword to the magician Merlin, is dying. Pierced by arrows, she falls into a river. A cliffhanger that should shock the fans.

Anyone familiar with the Arthurian legend knows that Nimue will most likely not die – she still has some big tasks ahead of her. In many other books and films, Nimue is known as the “Mistress of the Lake” and occupies a central position in further mythology. In the famous novel “The Mists of Avalon” by Marion Zimmer Bradley, for example, it is an important part of the story.

So that Nimue will be resurrected in the second season of “Cursed” is quite likely.

Who is the Weeping Monk?

Without question, the revelation of the true identity of the monk (Daniel Sharman) with the bloody tears on his face is the biggest twist at the end FMovie the first season of “Cursed”. The shady character is Lancelot, who is of course an integral part of many Arthurian stories.

Lancelot’s other story alone could fill a second season of “Cursed”. In the last few episodes, the Weeping Monk develops into a hero who, however, has to make amends for some atrocities. In other versions of the Arthurian legend, Lancelot is Arthur’s best friend, Guinevere’s lover and always on the lookout for the Holy Grail.

Nimue’s future, Lancelot’s development, and a few other open narrative threads in “Cursed” strongly suggest that a second season of the Netflix series is likely. As soon as we know more about it, we will of course inform you about it.
