What to know

critics consensus

It has a game cast and a premise ripe with potential, but Voyagers drifts in familiar orbit rather than fully exploring its intriguing themes. Read critic reviews

  • Burger doesn't bring anything new to the material, which was lifted practically beat for beat from William Golding's classic novel Lord of the Flies.

    May 2, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Most of the youthful actors give performances of a startling lassitude, although, to be charitable, that may be the fault of the plot...

    April 18, 2021 | Full Review…
  • "Voyagers" shows that Burger can still move a story along with craft, pace, and skill, even if that story is, in the end, awfully predictable. Maybe it's time he got back to the grown-ups' table.

    April 12, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The characters have so little development, they don't even reach archetypes level.

    April 11, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • This curious but engaging parable has its own speculative side, grounded mostly in the soft sciences: sociology, for instance, with a hint of the nature-or-nurture debate.

    April 9, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's the kind of premise that you can imagine would have been better served by a limited series with time to get to know and like at least some of the characters so that there are some stakes.

Audience Reviews for Voyagers

  • Apr 12, 2021
    The Lord of the Flies story (which is to say that children, even educated children, may tend towards brutal tribalism without adult supervision)...in a spaceship. The framing device, test tube babies out to colonize a new world, is different somewhat from the original but essentially the story's the same one. Stick with the book, or even one of the two films made from it, of which this one comes in a distant third.
