Critic Reviews for Steven Universe Season 5

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (3)

Steven Universe is distinctive for its prominence of queerness and its relevance to narrative arcs. Queerness is not sidelined. It is at the forefront.

A big queer step forward for cartoon TV.

Sep 21, 2018 | Full Review…

For the first time in a while, there's no way to know what's going to happen on Steven Universe -- and it's thrilling.

It created memorable, deservedly beloved characters that I already miss. It raised the bar immensely for diversity, among both the cast and crew. The world of animation is irrevocably different because of Steven Universe, and for the better.

Jan 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Feels very much like an epic swan song. It doesn't tie up a number of the series' dangling threads, but instead presents you with the bookend to a story that just feels... right.

Jan 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Steven Universe's queerness isn't just about the show's superficial trappings, it's baked into a core message: fight for love against all odds.

Sep 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Steven Universe as a series has always been one that highlights characters acting outside usual gender roles. Steven, even though he's a boy, dresses up in more feminine clothing on occasion and openly discusses his feelings.

Sep 21, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Few shows are as empathetic or committed to the value of all identities as this one, and it's fearless in its message of loving kindness even in the face of profound adversity. In this way, it's quietly one of the most radical shows in the medium.

Sep 21, 2018 | Full Review…

It's packed with shattering (pardon my pun) revelations, some of the best action sequences Steven Universe has ever aired, and the series' typical love.

Sep 21, 2018 | Rating: 8.9/10 | Full Review…

All these characters aren't just fighting for something, they're fighting for each others' right to live-and to find happiness. With so much hate thrown around in the world today, kids need these messages to teach them a more compassionate way.

Sep 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Steven Universe is a beacon of purity, reminding us of who and what we could all be if we weren't so jaded. When I watch it, I smile.

Sep 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Steven Universe has pushed queer representation further than any other all-ages TV show ever dreamed of doing.

Audience Reviews for Steven Universe: Season 5

  • Dec 23, 2019
    I appreciate what was attempted with this series, but it took far too long to get to a point where it comes together. At least it's understood that things must end.
  • Oct 24, 2019
    A good ending but not as impactful as the other seasons. I hope they keep on going after the movie and give us more of the Steven Universe...Universe.
  • Sep 19, 2019
    Season 5 brings the lore of Steven Universe to a rousing finale in time for the feature length film. Colorful, impactful, and important for today's youth. Kids need shows like this.

    I don't know how to communicate how much this show means to me. It's so well written. It teaches concepts I learned in therapy in my 30s in an animated show. It's absolutely revolutionary and a work of art. Thank you Rebecca Sugar!

    oh god where do I even begin. Oh I know they forgive Nazis that where trying to kill them.
  • Jun 27, 2019
    Steven Universe is especially known for its magical and interesting mythology as well as his important action for LGBTQ representation for children. This season, those things became brighter than ever: with the wedding of Ruby and Shapphire, the so much speculated trip to Homeworld and with the first time we actually see White Diamond. A lot of things were happening this season, but Crewniverse did an incredible job after all.
  • Apr 08, 2019
    Best season to come finshing off everything the show has set up. Full of none stop twists & turns. Makes you excoted for the tv movie coming out this summer.
  • Jan 12, 2019
    It's my favorite show how could I not like it?
  • Jan 08, 2019
    Most interesting season. Steven universe is a interesting show to put it that way . It's enjoyable to watch I'll give it that . The only episode that really hit me was the escapist which was probably the most fillery resent episode. It mainly has no dialogue and has some good visuals and music . Yeah . That's my review I guess.
  • Nov 06, 2018
    The most intense and story-driven season by far.
