Critic Reviews for Siren Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5)

Perhaps like the amphibious fish that grew legs, the series could evolve into a fully realized something... anything. But as it stands, it's best to resist Freeform's "Siren" song or you might find that you'll just want to throw it back.

Top Critic

Belgian actress Eline Powell, is terrific in the role, combining the artlessness of the ingenue with the nervy menace of the cornered animal.

Feb 12, 2020 | Full Review…

Siren has many of the hallmarks of a Freeform series - melodrama, attractive young stars, a trendy hook - but it's darker, bloodier and altogether more surprising.

Top Critic

The show has small-town mystery elements, frenetic action sequences, and of course, homages to Jaws.

Apr 19, 2018 | Full Review…

This first season surprised me, because while it was clearly limited by their network's budget and "family-friendly" vibe, it was violent, uncomfortable, and just downright creepy.

Jul 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Although mermaids are a well-known folklore creature, there aren't many TV shows that cover the topic, which gives Siren an advantage because this is entirely like nothing we've seen before.

Jun 22, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Siren's Ryn isn't your typical Freeform heroine - and not just because she eats live rats and sleeps in an old abandoned boat in the woods.

Apr 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Whatever it is, I am excited to keep watching. I'm just paranoid about what Freeform might do to undermine it.

Apr 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Looks like Freeform's new show has legs... and also a pretty intimidating tail. If Siren can fulfill the promise of its first few episodes, it might just grow into one of the most innovative shows on television.

Apr 16, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The show has successfully turned those beautiful mythical creatures into something far more dangerous than what we typically see, and it seems to be going in all the right directions because of it.

Mar 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The characters have strong personality traits, and they feel like fully formed people with different driving forces that make sense. It is so easy to reason why each of them does what they do, and it has only been two episodes.

Mar 30, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Siren looks like it's doing its own thing, and it's a good look. Even if it does look a little weird.

    I love this show. It's one of the best I've seen in a long time. I hope this show is renewed for season 4. Please FreeForm. Don't take it away.
  • Jul 05, 2020
    The plot was amazing as well as the characters.From the beginning, the series surprised me, bringing mermaids totally out of the cartoon pattern. The chemistry between Ryn and Ben is so cute and Eline Powell acting was so cute......
  • Jun 10, 2020

    This show is stupid . You can't go to the wild and to try to catch an animal, and get upset because the animals attacked you 😒
  • Apr 24, 2020
    It's beautiful I love the way they turned a fairytale story into action but a scary kind of way so yeah thumbs up
  • Apr 23, 2020
    From the beginning, the series surprised me, bringing mermaids totally out of the cartoon pattern. The tv show portrays very well what I think would happen if humanity encountered mermaids and what they actually looked like. It became my favorite tv show! Totally non-standard, original and very well produced!
  • Apr 18, 2020
    Great show, isn't my sort of show but I really enjoyed it, so did my husband
  • Apr 17, 2020

  • Apr 12, 2020
