Season 1
Emerald City

Critics Consensus

Dark and brooding, but also confusing and contrived, Emerald City is the Game of Thrones/Wizard of Oz mashup nobody asked for.

Audience Reviews for Emerald City: Season 1

  • Dec 23, 2022
    i cant believe this gets cancelled while junk like st discovery lives on. the charcters were great and the dark twist on the classic was pretty cool.
  • Apr 12, 2022
    Oh, dear. L. Frank Baum will be spinning in his grave at this adaptation of his book. Grimy, violent attempt to interpret another children's fantasy into a ‘down with the patriarchy' statement. Lots of great special effects and some good storylines. Men are evil and weak, and all women of every diverse background are good. Overall though, not one I will revisit.
  • Jul 25, 2020
    absolutely fantastic show. Was so gutted they never made season 2 or released it onto uk in the uk. Desperately want to watch it again
  • Jun 09, 2020
    I don't care what others think, Emerald City is one of the best TV shows ever to be cancelled. Each episode was better than its previous, leading to a massive season finale. It's the magic of the old days returning again, and it should be continued with season 2. There's so much potential for it. for example, season 2 could be featuring Ozma as a villain, Lucas and Dorothy with The Lion and The Tin Man vs her and the witches, The Beast Forever as everyone's enemy and Dorothy's father, and the rest depends on the creativity of the writers, composer, director, cast and producers. ALL WAITING FOR A SIGN TO BE UNLEASHED

    This show was indeed a fresh view of a story and one that was interesting to watch. It's a shame that it was canceled afters Season 1...
  • Feb 28, 2020
    Unbelievable that they killed this great series .so much junk gets the chance for 5 and more seasons
  • Apr 25, 2019
    This really is a great show, very interesting twist on an old favorite, it's a shame it didn't get the chance to show what it could have done with a season 2. Visually the show was amazing the acting was top notch if you like fantasy, little horror and a good twist try this
  • Mar 27, 2019
    Ridiculous. Bad acting. Unwatchable. One and a half for decent production value.
  • Mar 14, 2019
    It was a great show, it was original, it was compelling and consistent. It is sad it was cancelled, it deserved better.
  • Jan 06, 2019
    Posted review . Seems rotten tomatoes can’t handle getting back what they have no trouble dishing out in the way of criticism
