The Passage: Season 1 (2019)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Strong performances from leads Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Saniyya Sidney can't course correct The Passage's wayward plot and feeble tone.

Tv Season Info

Project Noah, a secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a dangerous virus that could lead to the cure for all disease, but also carries the potential to wipe out the human race. When a young girl (Saniyya Sidney, "Fences," "Hidden Figures") is chosen to be a test subject, a federal agent (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, "Pitch") is tasked with bringing her in, but ultimately, becomes her surrogate father, determined to protect her at any cost -- even as Project Noah's work threatens to unleash an unimaginable apocalypse.

Critic Reviews for The Passage Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (11)

Whatever the sci-fi parameters, they're not enough in themselves to sell a series.

It's a worthy endeavor... But for it to work in the long run, The Passage will need to start balancing the strength of the bond between its two principals with a clearer, stronger sense of the real horror they're facing.

Dramatic horror adaptation has vampires, bloody violence.

Jan 23, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

If the show can maintain its breakneck speed and continue unspooling the plot at a fast clip without running out of kite string, I expect viewers will still be around to see it.

Jan 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Everything is working together and executed in a way that makes The Passage one of the most engaging shows I've seen in a long time.

Jan 22, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

A ridiculously impatient, condensed approach to its source material.

Jan 17, 2019 | Full Review…

The Passage is a cautionary tale about forcing an unnatural match between organism and host. It's instructive, if not for the reasons its creators think.

Jan 16, 2019 | Full Review…

The developing father-daughter bond between Brad and Amy transcends the nonsense and pulls it all together.

Top Critic

The cliché hobbled vampire drama really isn't much fun or very interesting despite its obvious ambitions.

Jan 16, 2019 | Full Review…

It's breathless and intriguing, if a bit modestly scaled.
