So Cursed is based on a comic book?

It’s an Illustrated YA Novel and not a comic book. Frank Miller and author Tom Wheeler collaborated on the project together to tell the story of King Arthur from the point of view of the Lady of the Lake.

The comic was released on October 1st, 2019. The second image was meant to be the first cover but this has now been changed to orange cover on the left below.

Behind the scenes of Cursed

There have been plenty of behind-the-scenes photos of Cursed.

Production history for Cursed season 1 on Netflix

Filming concluded by the end of September 2019 and had been ongoing since March 2019.

Multiple locations were used throughout filming, including Frensham Little Pond in Frensham, Albury Park in Surrey, Bradford-on-Avon, and Clearwell Caves in the Forest of Dean. These locations are all in the United Kingdom.

Once the series completed filming (and no doubt throughout) the VFX team then took control of the project. Double Negative is behind the VFX for the series, which is currently working on The Matrix 4 and Netflix’s upcoming sci-fi series, Away. They’ve also worked on Tenet, Jumanji, Men in Black, Avengers: Endgame and Godzilla.
