The Brave: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

The Brave: Season 1 (2017-2018)



Critic Consensus: Formulaic to a fault, The Brave fails to bring anything new to the genre -- though high production values and a capable cast may be diverting enough for some.

Tv Season Info

A team of D.C.-based intelligence analysts headed by DIA Deputy Director Patricia Campbell (Anne Heche) join forces with an elite Special Ops team led by Capt. Adam Dalton (Mike Vogel). Together, with Campbell's team in charge of intelligence gathering and Dalton's team doing the groundwork, they conduct high-risk anti-terrorist missions in different countries. As they work one mission after another, the teams' members are forced to face dark pasts they prefer to forget, and the cost of keeping the world safe from terrorists becomes personal. "The Brave" also stars Tate Ellington as Noah, Sofia Pernas as Hannah, Demetrius Grosse as Preach, Hadi Tabbal as Amir, Noah Mills as McG, and Natacha Karam as Jaz.

News & Interviews for The Brave: Season 1

Critic Reviews for The Brave: Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (11)

The opening hour ends with an unexpected, big boom of a cliffhanger designed to bring viewers back for more. In that it's unique. Otherwise The Brave is broad-stroked and pro forma in highly volatile times both at home and abroad.

Top Critic

Director Brad Anderson does his best to elevate above something you've seen before and kinda gets there.

October 25, 2017 | Full Review…

Nothing about the first episode makes us think The Brave is any different than most case-of-the-week fare built for mass appeal.

September 26, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Capable enough time-killer, but nothing compelling.

Top Critic

NBC isn't breaking any new ground here, but maybe it doesn't need to. More focused on operations with a clear procedural setup, The Brave offers up tense tactical missions, but hasn't revealed what its narrative focus will look like.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

As openers go, the execution of this feels like a workaday procedural drama more than a counter-terrorism thriller.
