TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Despite promising performers, Heathers' aspirational angst is let down by its blunt, misguided attempts at social commentary.

Critic Reviews for Heathers Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (3)

Considering the 2018 landscape, it's possible a darker reboot could have worked if handled delicately. Sadly, Paramount took the opposite approach.

Feb 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Flipping the original version's script without understanding any of its messages was always going to be a problem. Bringing it into such a radically changed world was even worse. The show was doomed from the start.

Nov 1, 2018 | Full Review…

What's missing better focused aims and a keener sense of satire. In the current climate you can't just make fun of these issues, there needs to be a smarter approach.

Oct 29, 2018 | Full Review…

All the ingredients are right, but this is a pop culture cake that was left in the oven too long and now it's burnt.

Oct 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The show is painfully sharp in its portrayal of the way grief is performed on social media and I.R.L. It is similarly brutal in its lampooning of national deformities.

Oct 26, 2018 | Full Review…

What once seemed audacious is now just atrociously mean-spirited.

Oct 25, 2018 | Full Review…

The show's overall impact gets blunted by a one-dimensional villain, bipolar tonal shifts and out-of-touch attempts to wield identity politics like a baseball bat.

Oct 22, 2018 | Full Review…

The casting is perfect...and the scripts pay bulk homage to the original. Well worth checking out.

Sep 26, 2018 | Full Review…

In other words, this is less a reboot and more an intentional inversion of the original concept, built on the premise that the bullied have since become the bullies.

Jun 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The Heathers TV series is only "just" squeaking by, a try-hard attempt at satire that'll make you long for that chainsaw.
