But it seems the 10-part series sparked a mixed reaction, with many praising it's cinematography and acting, but others seemingly disappointed with the plot. One person wrote on Twitter: "Was very into #CursedNetflix for the first three episodes then it got kind of MEH for me. Doubt I'll be watching season two," while a second person wrote: "#CursedNetflix is straight but the writing and plot line is a bit thin. The nod to Christianity in the cinematography is cool too. It does feel like if GoT and an overzealous Wattpad story had a baby."

Meanwhile, a third user had particular strong views on the show, writing: "@CursedNetflix is probably the most horrible show I've seen in a very, very long time. If you're reading this and planning on watching it PLEASE DONT! #CursedNetflix Looks like the show itself is cursed."

However, many were thrilled with the series and are hoping for a second instalment. A Twitter user wrote: "I'm not asking for a season 2, I'M DEMANDING IT #Cursed #CursedNetflix @CursedNetflix," while another echoed this thought writing: "Just binged @CursedNetflix and @_DevonTerrell #KatherineLangford were great together and @daniel_sharman was amazing as always!!

The fantasy drama is a retelling of the classic legend of Arthur, told through Nimue, a teenage heroine with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake. The official synopsis reads: "After her mother's death, she finds an unexpected partner in Arthur, a young mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther."
