Salvation: Season 1 (2017)



Critic Consensus: Neither remarkably bad nor impressively well-made, Salvation is stereotypical summer television -- a low-stakes diversion that may pass the time well enough for undemanding audiences without ever being particularly memorable along the way.

News & Interviews for Salvation: Season 1

Critic Reviews for Salvation Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7)

Indeed, such a cheesy series should come with a health warning for the lactose intolerant.

May 16, 2018 | Full Review…

All but the most loyal broadcast viewers are growing beyond the kind of generic, overly polished storytelling Salvation offers.

Feb 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Those who enjoy more cerebral dramas will find it entertaining.

Jul 18, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

[Salvation] takes an old concept and gives it life through strong casting and some interesting plot paths.

Jul 14, 2017 | Full Review…

Salvation quickly proves itself to lack a key point in that quip: Fun.

Aug 24, 2018 | Full Review…

As fast as Salvation moves along, it still seems not quick enough. Do we really have to sit through all the predictable plot twists and complicated human relationships just to get to the good part?

Jul 18, 2017 | Full Review…

Salvation has an interesting story somewhere deep down - and a cast that's mostly capable - but it doesn't care to tell it.

Jul 13, 2017 | Full Review…

I realize that "OK" is not exactly a ringing endorsement, but -- c'mon! -- this is a summer series that's supposed to be a diversion. If you're looking for something smart, try PBS, not CBS.

Jul 13, 2017 | Full Review…

Trust me when I say that in truth, the biped hamsters of Big Brother offer a more realistic view of humanity than this unbelievable new disaster-drama series.

Jul 13, 2017 | Full Review…

Salvation is a summertime network drama that's not asking anything of you but to give up an hour of your time and lose it forever. In return, you get a low-grade familiar sensation that means nothing but dulls your life a little bit.

Audience Reviews for Salvation: Season 1


An apocalyptic sci-fi thriller, Salvation delivers a promising first season. When MIT grad student Liam Cole discovers an asteroid that's set to collide with Earth he takes his finding to tech billionaire Darius Tanz, who then partners with the government to devise a plan to save humanity. The writers do a good job at keeping the story intense and suspenseful, throwing in twists and conspiracies to heighten the drama. However, there are some extraneous and cliché subplots with an intrepid reporter, a torrid romance, and family strife. Also, the actors' performances are fairly mediocre (at least at first), and it takes a while for the characters to develop. Yet, the storytelling is full of intrigue and each episodes ends with an exciting cliffhanger. Season 1 of Salvation is a bit of a mess, but is still entertaining.
