Critic Consensus: An engrossing drama with a fun '80s soundtrack, Deutschland 83 chronicles an intense spy story that brings viewers uncomfortably close to the Iron Curtain.

News & Interviews for Deutschland 83: Season 1
This is a period drama that sometimes lacks drama but makes up for it with a deep sense of period.
The clunky '80s spy technology is riveting. The locations in and around Berlin add visual interest. Nay's cool, understated performance is a plus.
Deutschland 83 is a genuine corker, with flashes of graphic style-an angular black-and-white dress, a carefully arranged drawer of cigarettes, cash, and Nescafé.
It's enough to make us demand more, possibly an entire channel of German drama, if they're all this good.
Audience Reviews for Deutschland 83: Season 1
It's not everyday that you see a spy thriller coming from Germany. Deutschland 83 is a clever drama about a young man being forced to act as KGB spy for East Germany in the 1983. Lots of drama ensured. I wish it was more realistic however, but overall very engaging.
