Critic Reviews for Sorry for Your Loss Season 1

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (17)

If you're going to ask an audience to wallow in tragedy, you better have a point to make, and Sorry for Your Loss has yet to find a fresh one.

Dec 14, 2018 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

A sensitive, well-meaning illumination of a difficult topic that doesn't quite add up to a compelling series.

Sep 21, 2018 | Full Review…

It's the kind of series that's instantly so fully formed, so funny and candid and wrenching right from the start, that you almost question the emotional propriety of it all.

Sep 19, 2018 | Full Review…

A sensitive, nuanced and particularly well-acted dirge.

Sep 17, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

What's most refreshing is the way Olsen and the show's creator, playwright Kit Steinkellner, translate Leigh's grief into behavior that can be stunningly selfish and thoroughly understandable at once.

Jan 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Sorry for Your Loss is an intense, emotionally raw meditation on grief. And yet, it's never overwhelming as much as engrossing.

Dec 14, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Sorry For Your Loss is centered around a woman dealing with tragedy, but at its heart is anchored by a magnetic ensemble cast and phenomenal writing.

Jan 27, 2019 | Rating: A | Full Review…

The result is a surprisingly engaging, remarkably well-written mediation on the different, less-celebrated ways to grieve.

Dec 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Sorry to Your Loss doesn't act as if it's unlocking a key component of the human experience. In a landscape where shows are too easily pegged to political import, this just feels like a good story about grief and empathy.

Dec 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Creator Kit Steinkellner and show-runner Lizzy Weiss have successfully managed to create a slice-of-life show about grief. The main question of the series is, how do you manage when your world and your world alone has ended?

Dec 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Give it a couple of episodes and let the show's warmth, heart and sly wit slowly work its magic.

Nov 15, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Heavy drama explores themes of grief and depression.

  • Feb 16, 2021
    Wonderfully heartfelt and a genuine display of the experience of losing a loved one. Very relatable. It sneaks in some humor, which has you laughing amidst the tears. Absolutely needs a season 3 and more!!! Hoping that one of the streaming services like Netflix, Prime, or Hulu pucks this one up. Hintity hint! : )

    a touching portrayal on a sensitive subject. Amazing performance by Olsen!
  • Dec 27, 2019
    AMAZING! This show really touched me to my core. I had to replay multiple scenes due to constant sobbing. The cast really sold me on the story, authentic characterization people can relate to but also understand the grieving process from a different POV.
  • Nov 11, 2019
    It was extremely accurate in my experience. I'm a widow of almost 3 years.
  • Oct 12, 2019
    Elizabeth Olsen's acting is beyond exceptional. The show accurately portrays the stages of grief, and the plot is beautifully complex
  • Oct 02, 2019
    With an interesting and exceptional story that happens in our reality, Sorry For Your Loss will lead us to a topic about how it feels to lose a loved one, while reflecting the masterful, emotional and excellent performance of Elizabeth Olsen...
