AMC Picks up Captain Nemo Prequel Series ‘Nautilus’ From Disney

Another scrapped Disney+ series has been saved and will air on AMC in 2024.

While Disney has been scrapping series left and right, even if they were already completed, it’s nice to know that some of these series will still see the light of day after all, albeit on a different network. It’s been announced that the previously scrapped series Nautilus, a prequel to Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, has been picked up by AMC and will air on that network in 2024.

Nautilus will consist of ten episodes and will air on AMC and AMC+ as a special event. The series is described as follows:

Nautilus will follow Captain Nemo (Shazad Latif), an Indian Prince robbed of his birthright and family, a prisoner of the East India Mercantile Company and a man bent on revenge against the forces that have taken everything from him. 

The series also stars Georgia Flood as Humility Lucas, Thierry Frémont as Gustave Benoit, Pacharo Mzembe as Boniface, Arlo Green as Turan, Tyrone Ngatai as Kai, Ling Cooper Tang as Suyin, Andrew Shaw as Jiacomo, Ashan Kumar as Ranbir, Chum Ehelepola as Jagadish, Céline Menville as Loti, Kayden Price as Blaster, Damien Garvey as Director Crawley, Richard E. Grant as the leader of Karajaan, Muki Zubis as Casamir, Benedict Hardie as Cuff, Jacob Collins-Levy as Captain Youngblood, and Luke Arnold as Captain Billy Millais.
