Teenage Bounty Hunters: Season 1 (2020)


Season 1
Teenage Bounty Hunters

Critics Consensus

Teenage Bounty Hunters has snappy one-liners and style to spare, and though its peculiar premise at times fizzles, it's held together by Maddie Phillips and Anjelica Bette Fellini's killer chemistry.

Critic Reviews for Teenage Bounty Hunters Season 1

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (9)

Basically you've got a cheeky high-concept premise that doesn't know where to go. Stars Phillips and Fellini deserve better; so does the audience.

With a writing team led by Jordan and a director roster dotted with comedy vets, "Teenage Bounty Hunters" sizzles when it steps back and lets [Blair and Sterling's] interactions flourish.

Top Critic

Both Phillips and Fellini are hugely appealing and instinctively hilarious from the outset, and series creator Kathleen Jordan has given them well-drawn yet unpredictable characters to work with and bounce off.

Aug 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Watching them grow as young women... is a phrase that makes me want to gag, but it's actually one of the most charming elements of the show.

Aug 24, 2020 | Full Review…

The trio of Hardison, Phillips, and Fellini is certainly capable, especially given the inexperience of the younger actors, but they are given a lot to handle.

Top Critic

"Teenage Bounty Hunters" is not perfect television, but it's infused with the sort of small-scale, needle-sharp sensibility that can't be achieved by committee, nor, really, by anyone fearful of falling flat.

Aug 21, 2020 | Full Review…

Bounty Hunters is tart yet affectionate, sending up the sweet, shiny, bless-your-heart hypocrisy of Southern culture...

Sep 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Teenage Bounty Hunters is a breath of fresh air in a stale, crowded playing field.

Aug 25, 2020 | Full Review…

It's warm and it's weird, consistently funny, and an off-the-wall blast from beginning to end.

Aug 24, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Violence, sex in fresh, funny female-centered comedy.

Aug 21, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Teenage Bounty Hunters is a surprisingly enjoyable romp from start to finish. The story is unique, the casting is pretty much perfect, and there are plenty of twists and turns that you will absolutely never see coming.

Aug 21, 2020 | Full Review…

It reveals itself as a fractured story, with enough good performances that it's worth spending a little time with these characters.

Audience Reviews for Teenage Bounty Hunters: Season 1

    Absolutely amazing! It's such a grasping, emotional, excruciatingly funny show. Since the beginning of the first episode I was hooked. I watched it straight up, in one sitting. Surprising at every turn, involving at every second. I really hope there is a second season. From the sister's dinamics to Bowser and Yolanda to Sterling and April and their Parents secrets and plot, the whole time I was aching to know more and more, to follow through the drama and the plot. It's absolutely a Must-watch and I hope there will be a second and third and as many more possible! Please watch it!

    This show slaps!! They dive tighti to the premise on ep1 and it just gets better from there. The satire, tongue in cheek humor is right up my alley.
  • 3d ago
    Such a refreshing watch. I laughed out loud way more than I expected to, and everyone on screen has amazing chemistry.
  • 4d ago
    Lighthearted, funny, whimsical, and sexy. Only occasionally dull but with enough character development to keep me binging from one episode to the next.
  • 5d ago
    Utterly silly but brimming with crackling energy, a touch of satire, and great chemistry between all of its characters, Teenage Bounty Hunters is the most fun show Netflix has put out in a long time. By the halfway mark I found myself hardly caring about the series' plot, staying just for the humor and character interactions.

    Absolutly love it, the series go with a really crazy argument, but the chemestry on scene of Maddie and Anjelica is wonderfull and so natural
  • 5d ago
    It's rediculous but somehow addictive. Very much enjoyed this series.

    Terrible title for an incredible show. I was on the edge of my seat for the last few episodes. The combination of wit, surprisingly good actors, and compelling storylines is classic Jenji. The leads will all be stars after this if there's any justice in the world. I'm telling everyone I know to run to Netflix to catch this one. Season 2 can't come soon enough!

    Perverse use of teenage sex lives with Christian, conservative upbringing who inconceivably are entrusted to become bounty hunters. More ridiculous is their psychic twin bond which a spoiler reveals shouldn't exist. Phillips and Fellini are a joy as two forces of nature. I just don't like overly exploiting for purpose of story unbelievable scenarios and parents apprehensive or ignorant to do anything.

    This show is terrible. Such a disappointment.
