The Society: Season 1 (2019)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: An intriguing tangle of mystery and melodrama, what The Society lacks in levity -- and at times clarity -- it makes up for with its surprisingly thoughtful exploration of community, culture, and what it means to grow up.

Critic Reviews for The Society Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (6)

At a certain point the drama does get addictive, as the show eventually reveals what it's really about: a grim reckoning with the fact that these teens have had to grow up too fast.

It's easy to sneer at The Society, awash as it is in teen-series melodrama and a perpetually unsatisfying central mystery that only truly serves as a high-concept hook, but there's something oddly seductive about the show as it comes into its own.

The references to canonical literature and moral texts may not help them much as the teens teeter between good intentions and bad impulses, high ideals and dark desires, occasional clarity and murky confusion. Just like the rest of us.

Is The Society a show about sort-of whiny privileged kids in an overfamiliar YA set up? Yes. Absolutely, there's no denying that. But it's a pretty damn good one.

A successful cross between teen drama and science fiction mystery. [Full Review in Spanish]

May 19, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The Society contains not a single interesting character or plot line. Its young cast is so unmemorable that it's impossible to recall which one is which.

After overcoming a few clunky opening episodes, The Society becomes a harrowing must-watch.

May 13, 2019 | Rating: 8.8 | Full Review…

It is both fascinating and frustrating to watch the teens build an idealistic world and then struggle to maintain their values.

May 13, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Press play if you're looking for a teen drama series that is more than pretty promo posters and offers a dynamic look at characters, their trauma, and builds out their story arcs.

May 16, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

All of this and more makes for a brilliantly average, perfectly imperfect show for bouncing teens, cankered fortysomethings and nothing in between. A joy.
