The Arrangement

Critics Consensus

The Arrangement plays things a little too conservatively to live up to its soporific potential, but viewers who enjoy a cynical take on Hollywood coupledom may find the series refreshingly candid about celebrity matchmaking.

Critic Reviews for The Arrangement Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

[The Arrangement is] E!'s sexy new scripted offering - part Hollywood fairy tale, part Hollywood cautionary tale - which, for the record, is definitely NOT about Scientology and the arranged marriage of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.

Aug 29, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The Arrangement entirely misses the point of why we get obsessed with some celebrity matches, even when we can freely admit that we really know nothing about the famous people involved.

Mar 17, 2017 | Full Review…

The Arrangement has already gone in some interesting directions. It is absolutely a soap, but much more nakedly cynical.

Mar 3, 2017 | Full Review…

I don't know whether I wanted The Arrangement to be realer or trashier or funnier, but it needed to be something more.

Mar 3, 2017 | Full Review…

Evangelista certainly makes an impression. She plays a muted desperation that makes her ultimate decision to accept the proposal believable.

Mar 3, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Evangelista plays Megan as effortlessly cool - confident, with just a hint of vulnerability - and she's the main reason that the new E! scripted series is a delight to watch.

Mar 3, 2017 | Full Review…

If anything, The Arrangement plays it a little too straight and sedate. An injection of just a little crazy would make the whole enterprise more fun.

Mar 1, 2017 | Full Review…

Underdeveloped stories of an arranged Hollywood marriage.

Mar 14, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Well-placed breadcrumbs make you want to tune in to one more episode at least.

Mar 9, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Everything presented so far in The Arrangement has my attention. Even though it's not going to be a happy ending, it's hard to turn away.

Mar 7, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The show needs more juice. Instead of skirting away, it needs to embrace the story that inspired it.

Mar 6, 2017 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Overall, The Arrangement has a chance to be a breakout hit of the year. The pilot offers a lot of promise, and the season preview looks like it will have more than a few cliffhangers.

Audience Reviews for The Arrangement: Season 1

  • Aug 05, 2020
    More entertaining because of the cast rather than the story.
  • May 15, 2020
    A decent show. At times, a bit too much treading the surface without really "diving in", but still interesting nonetheless.
