Critic Reviews for The Exorcist: Season 1

All Critics (50) | Top Critics (22)

Much anticipated and ferociously well realised.

December 16, 2016 | Full Review…

Taking place in the present day, the series is, crucially, not a retelling of the famous Regan case from the Friedkin's film but a new tale, set in the same demon-ridden universe.

October 20, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Maybe someday there'll be a place on television for a show about religion helping people to cope with the everyday horrors that can strike at any time, but that show obviously can't be The Exorcist.

September 22, 2016 | Full Review…

Evil still lurks in the hearts of children in The Exorcist, a reboot of the classic film that benefits from a sharp cast, including Geena Davis, and a chill that will make even horror veterans reach for an extra blanket.

September 22, 2016 | Full Review…

The pilot holds some promise, and then watching children act like profane, satanic monsters is almost always unsettling, even when network standards don't permit certain words.

September 22, 2016 | Full Review…

With expectations low, this Exorcist surprises with appealing leads, and - a big bonus point - the return to TV of Geena Davis.
