NOS4A2: Season 1 (2019)


Season 1

Critics Consensus

Though Nos2a2 strains to build the necessary atmosphere to pull off its ambitious premise, it does capture the spirit of Joe Hill's singular work and provide a new psychopath for Zachary Quinto to sink his teeth into.

Though the series feels like it's about to take off at any moment, it struggles to get into gear.

Devoid of emotion or an imaginary that justifies its 10 episodes installed in disinterest for its scattered narrative.[Full Review in Spanish]

May 5, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

This is excellent horror telefantasy. Check it out as soon as you can, and be aware that a second series is very much on the way.

The most frightening thing about Zachary Quinto's vampire is his gross fingernails, but the rest of the cast kept me watching week to week.

Sep 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Proved to be a surprisingly savvy adaptation of the source material, backed by strong performances from Quinto, Cummings, Jahkara Smith as Maggie and Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Vic's father. But more importantly, I'm excited to see where it will go from here.

There are moments of striking imagery and immersive world-building... but the series' misaligned priorities rarely give you time to soak in the horror before dropping you back into drab dramatics about campus visits and mismanaged taxes.

Jun 20, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Toothless vampire drama does have lots of violence.

Jun 18, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The premiere doesn't exactly inspire confidence at first glance, but it's possible this a show with promise buried down deep that will take a bit of time to get the ball rolling.

Jun 4, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Quinto and Cummings put in two fine performances and the story has a prestige TV sheen that makes us want to see more.

Jun 4, 2019 | Full Review…

It's refreshing in a TV landscape full of complicated antiheroes that the characters with the most interiority in NOS4A2 are the good guys.

Jun 3, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

NOS4A2 is right up my alley... The concept is fascinating, and Vic's powers are a rarity in horror TV.

Jun 3, 2019 | Full Review…

A spooky and suspenseful drama... This reimagining of the vampire story isn't playing things for laughs.

Audience Reviews for NOS4A2: Season 1

    I was kind of on the fence about watching this. And after starting I wasn't very impressed. But about a third of the way through it grabbed hold of me and I was hooked. Its really such a unique and creepy concept as kids are being taken from their homes and in some cases their parents murdered. We than meet a young woman Vic McQueen played by Ashleigh Cummings of Hounds of Love. She has an awful home life and with the help of a young charasmatic psychic named Maggie Leigh played by an impressive Jakhara Smith (Pilgrim) she discovers she has certain gifts. Anytime she wants to find something she can go to her very own psychedelic bridge and it will take her there. I know it all sounds a bit goofy but they pull it off very well. Unfortunately a supposed man named Charlie Manx played by a maniacal Zachary Quinto (Star Trek) is hunting those with gifts to feed his own hunger. I won't say anymore because I don't want to ruin anything but it's surprisingly great, disturbing, creative and quite unique. 4.25/5

    Feminism. All the men are evil, dumb or broken, all women have superpowers, half the women are lesbians, the top goal of the protagonist is to go to an art school where everyone has blue hair. Made by men hating 3rd wave feminists for men hating 3rd wave feminists.

    Really drags with too much filler B.S.....could of been a 2 hour movie instead.
  • Mar 30, 2020
    Can be a bit boring at times and moves slowly

    A friend of mine convinced me to give this series a chance, knowing I'm into horror and fantasy series/films, as well as being a tv/movie reviewer. But honestly, I don't know why I wasted my time. Perhaps it's the author in me, but I like watching a series/film with structure and details that actually make sense, blending together to create a stable series. Well, this lacked all of that, sorry to say. Nothing made sense and the series started and continued with the episodes running backwards! What!? I have never seen a series do that! The protagonist; Vic McQueen aka the Brat, needed a complete makeover; being a scraggly haired-motorcycle riding tomboy. But at least though, I have to say, I was glad she wasn't a skinny blonde in high heels prancing around looking dumb. I couldn't understand what or how she came into utilizing that bridge (her whatever creative?) and why her eye bled every time she used it. None of those details were explained. It just started out of the clear blue? The Medium, with her pretty purple velvet pouch and stupid Scrabble tiles, was the MOST unnecessary character; especially her sexual trysts! I mean, come the hell is/was that necessary to the show!? She was disgusting and none of that held any importance to the story and didn't make things any easier to understand other than she was gay. The only interesting part of the whole series, was the beautiful Wraith car but I wanted to know, among many things, was how Manx became linked to the car and how he came to be? What was/is his backstory!? And honestly too, what's up with Christmas Land and those little demon kids!? Are they little demons or...what!? I can't see how this is being called a new take on vampires because there's absolutely nothing vampiric about it! I've heard there's a season 2 coming out in 2020 and I hope they rewrite the whole series, getting rid of/rewriting some of the characters.

    I'm on Ep 3. So far so good. But hate when authors/screenwriters add a random pet killing for no reason. Kill all the people you want but wtf man leave the pets alone. When will writers learn.

    Creative. Well acted.
  • Aug 23, 2019
    Poor adaptation of a great book.
  • Aug 07, 2019
    The beginning was a little choppy since I was a big fan of the book, but ended up being overall good.
