Now Apocalypse: Season 1 (2019)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Marrying filmmaker Gregg Araki's frisky style with heady conspiracies and literary allusions, Now Apocalypse's bodacious aesthetics and philosophical pondering may prove too deliberately offbeat and garish for some.

Now Apocalypse: Season 1 Videos

Tv Season Info

This surreal, coming-of-age comedy series follows Ulysses (Avan Jogia, "Tut," "Twisted") and his friends Carly (Kelli Berglund, "Lab Rats," Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors), Ford (Beau Mirchoff, "Awkward," "The Fosters") and Severine (Roxane Mesquida, Kaboom, "Gossip Girl"), who are on various quests pursuing love, sex and fame. "Now Apocalypse" explores identity, sexuality and artistry while navigating the strange and oftentimes bewildering city of Los Angeles. Between sexual and romantic dating-app adventures, Ulysses grows increasingly troubled as foreboding premonitory dreams make him wonder if some kind of dark and monstrous conspiracy is going on, or if he is just smoking too much weed.

Critic Reviews for Now Apocalypse Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (9)

The ride toward the end is as familiar as it is dull. If the apocalypse is nigh, than the last thing people should do is spend their time watching another lazy recreation of millennial malaise.

While Starz's new series Now Apocalypse hardly reinvents the wheel, the show's colorful aesthetics and charming cast make for a worthwhile experience.

Mar 18, 2019 | Full Review…

The queer alien comedy we deserve.

Mar 17, 2019 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Now Apocalypse has the right combination of quirk, mystery and funny performances to keep us intrigued.

Mar 13, 2019 | Full Review…

This show is wild, in many of the best ways. Some of the most on the nose things in this show are played so earnestly that they work.

Mar 12, 2019 | Full Review…

I like it very much for its cheery energy, its elegant awkwardness, its lack of cynicism or pretension, and its C-movie features twisted into goofy poetry.

Mar 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Though Now Apocalypse is sillier and less philosophically ambitious than Twin Peaks, its similar commingling of the soapy, the psychological and the supernatural justifies the citation.

Mar 12, 2019 | Full Review…

There's so much strangeness in this series... that's oddly charming, despite the at-first unlikable characters at hand.

Mar 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Now Apocalypse plays like the kind of show that can only benefit from a decadent binge.

Mar 11, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The result is kind of a grab bag of a show, but one that is nevertheless refreshingly upbeat, surreal, and sex positive.
