Salvation: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

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.

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.

February 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Those who enjoy more cerebral dramas will find it entertaining.

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

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

July 14, 2017 | Full Review…

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

August 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?

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.
