Critic Reviews for Diary of a Future President Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

It's all tackled with a wit and sincerity that simply comes from thoughtful writing, a trait that is apparent in each of the first five episodes.

Jan 15, 2020 | Full Review…

Well cast, thoughtfully written, relatable, inclusive, and inspiring. It's a low-key winner.

Jan 27, 2020 | Full Review…

[A] basic dish, but still a pretty good one thanks to its appealing ingredients.

Jan 16, 2020 | Full Review…

Diary of a Future President is such fun thanks to its sharp script and Romero's affecting performance. The series is a must-watch.

Jan 15, 2020 | Full Review…

Plenty effective as a heart-warming, occasionally clever coming-of-age comedy that still feels distinctive, even if it might feel more unique if Netflix/Pop's One Day at a Time hadn't also been a multigenerational portrait of a Cuban-American family.

Jan 14, 2020 | Full Review…

Reflective look at go-getter's tween years is mild, sweet.

Feb 7, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Diary of a Future President is one of the least annoying Disney shows for preteens we've seen in years. And that's high praise, believe us.

Jan 17, 2020 | Full Review…

The start is rocky but the tone eventually comes around. The only thing to hope for now is that it remains.

Audience Reviews for Diary of a Future President: Season 1

  • May 25, 2020
    Great for more mature kids due to some more "mature" themes. Rated on Disney+ as 0+ so it's your call! It's a great show and I would love to see it return for a second season!
  • May 23, 2020
    This show is the best preteen show I have come across so far. It tackles more complex emotions and issues in a very positive, fun way. That's one show I think my daughter is learning good things from.
  • Apr 03, 2020
    I don't know why people are sleeping on this show! It's so great! A mix of dealing with middle school problems (at both 6th and 8th grade levels) and adult problems. They don't shy away from things like parents dying, sexuality, friendship, popularity, equality, and more. Elena is the lead character we need! I love this whole cast of characters and cannot wait for season 2.
  • Apr 03, 2020
    This show is amazing, it has so much representation including different races, ethnicity, sexualities... The season finale was great, but not for a show finale. We need a season 2, I need to see how Liam and Bobby's relationship plays out. I want to see Bobby coming out to his friends and family. This show is phenomenal, it has women supporting women, normalization of periods and therapy, realistic show of grief, interracial relationships (that aren't just white + poc). Anyways, the show is great and everyone needs to watch it.

    Finally a disney show with representation done right, realistic portrayal of diverse characters
  • Mar 27, 2020
    I enjoyed the representation that this show brings to light for people that haven't seen themselves on TV before. I saw a big part of myself for the first time through Bobby, as what he went through in middle school was very similar to what I went through. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this show and hope it gets renewed because I need more!
  • Mar 26, 2020
    I absolutely love this show!! The cast and episodes are amazing. This show is the only reason why I kept Disney PLUS. I hope it gets renewed for another reason! Phenomenal and modern storylines! I love the representation of Latino culture in this show and the relatable storylines!! Wish there were more episodes!!
  • Mar 26, 2020
    i love it so much!!! so sad they are not having season two
  • Mar 23, 2020
    It rehashes the tween girl drama with basic side stories formula, but the new platform welcomes freshness with its age appropriate cast, Hispanic representation, feminism, and it's adorkable leading young ladies.
  • Mar 23, 2020
    I binged this show super fast. It is incredible. The diversity, humor, representation and great messages make this show something truly special.
