Critic Consensus: A sincere -- if a little simple -- supernatural love story, The Innocents' moody meandering leaves a satisfying first impression.

News & Interviews for The Innocents: Season 1
As with many a horror heroine, June must navigate her desires, newfound power and personal relationships and make it out alive. All the while, we're left holding out for the happy ending we've come to expect from teenage romance.
The righteousness of teenage rebellion and joy in sudden freedom are palpable and almost too earnest to bear.
The handful of flashbacks that exist serve only to advance the story, not to deepen what viewers know about who these characters are.
Slowburn pacing casts a spell, too, and if June and Harry never convince as Yorkshire's answer to Romeo and Juliet, the mystery swirling around the former's supernatural abilities is undeniably riveting.
Like so much YA fiction, everything here is over-directed and over-written, allowing no room for the teen audience to interpret any deeper meaning.
