The Nevers Season 1, Part 1 comes to DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, Oct. 5. Take a look inside this review to see what to expect.

Why would you want a DVD boxset for a show that is on a streaming platform? Well, do you want to keep paying for a subscription every month just to watch one show? Or maybe two or three shows? It all ends up adding up.

And then there are problems with internet connections or the streaming platforms have a hissy fit for a while. You want to be able to watch your shows, and that includes The Nevers Season 1, Part 1. The series is heading to DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, Oct. 5.

Set in August, 1986, the series follows a group of mostly women who have been Touched after a supernatural event. They all form one special skill because of the event, whether it involves electricity, the ability to sing a special song, or time travel.

Amalia True and Penance Adair work together to protect these special women (and some men) with the help of Lavinia Bidlow. However, there’s something sinister going on, and Bidlow has something to do with it.

What to expect on The Nevers Season 1, Part 1 DVD and Blu-ray

We got a review copy of The Nevers Season 1, Part 1 DVD to offer our honest review. The copy includes all six episodes that aired on HBO. We’re still waiting for Part 2, and it looks like we’ll be waiting until 2022 for that. We know it’s worth the wait.
