Coyote: Season 1 (2021)


Season 1
Coyote

Critics Consensus

Despite a solid return for Michael Chiklis and deft direction from Michelle MacLaren, Coyote suffers from predictable plotting and too many loose ends.

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

Binge-bait, and compelling binge-bait at that.

Jan 8, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

"Coyote" may find its way to more substance if it's allowed to prowl a bit longer, but like Ben's bowel movements, you're just as likely to be relieved that it's over.

MacLaren shows her skills with pacing and visual language in the first pair of episodes, making the questionable plotting and dialogue easy to take.

Jan 6, 2021 | Full Review…

An unwanted bouquet of loose ends gradually reveals itself - quite possibly the result of the season order being truncated from 10 to six episodes after a COVID work stoppage, but unfortunate and distracting nonetheless.

Jan 11, 2021 | Full Review…

To be blunt: a show that asks its audience to connect to a rogue Border Patrol agent with literal blood on his hands needs to work harder than this one does to justify its premise.

The only surprise in Coyote is the quality: It's very good. Sometimes a noir, sometimes a Western, sometimes a tense action thriller and sometimes piquantly funny, Coyote has something for nearly everybody

We'll give Coyote the benefit of the doubt, given the presence of both Chiklis and MacLaren.

Jan 12, 2021 | Full Review…

These final two episodes painted a more nuanced portrait of El Catrin, aka Juan Diego.

Jan 11, 2021 | Rating: 4.6/5 | Full Review…

Coyote benefits by stronger plotting, an authentic sense of place and a more rounded portrayal of the crime family that traps Ben in their internal power struggle.

Jan 8, 2021 | Full Review…

Assembled from spare parts left over from previous television trends and decaying prejudices.

Jan 8, 2021 | Full Review…

Breaking Bad director Michelle MacLaren gives this series a "Bad" vibe, but that doesn't insure it is good... Coyote proves watchable but too derivative.

Audience Reviews for Coyote: Season 1

    A mix of lot of things of course, nothing really new here, it's like BCS meets Sicario with a twist, the plot is rather simple there are not a hundred side stories unraveling and the comedians enjoy their time so do us !

    A thrilling, nuanced foray into one of the most complex humanitarian crises facing the US. Excellent performances throughout and great filmmaking. I want to see where it goes!

    "Created by David Graziano" ? It's a rip off of Sicario and it's garbage as well !
