News & Interviews for Trickster: Miniseries
An engrossing fantasy, a moving coming of age story and a profound reflection on the plight of First Nations people in Canada
Trickster is the rare story where Indigenous folklore isn't twisted into a thin plot device, but reimagined into a fun teen mystery.
There are so many enticing elements in the early Trickster episodes that I'd hope CBC would take the opportunity to move even more Indigenous voices front-and-center - in other words, to continue to amplify what is worthwhile here.
The series never feels like it's labouring to educate on Indigenous history, intergenerational trauma and the current moment. But that history and this moment flow like a current through Trickster.
Trickster is a promising new series that boasts an incredible ensemble of Indigenous actors, a story about Haisla people and the stories they tell.
The supernatural elements are more grounded than in the usual CW fare, and the backdrop of an impoverished community adds unexpected realism. This "Trickster" is worth watching.
Gritty, brimming with magic, and set in a Canadian world that's as mesmerizingly cool as it is grim, this series breaks the mold for coming of age supernatural mysteries.
Trickster has a wonderfully unique tone and sly sense of humor, and an absolutely incredible cast.
[The premiere] isn't perfect and the series needs to move a little faster if it is going to succeed, but overall it's a promising start.
We'll give Trickster points for having a mostly Indigenous cast and writing staff. But the show itself has to become a bit less bleak for us to want to keep watching.
Score one for diversity in The CW's latest import from our Northern neighbor, even if we might wish for this downbeat youth drama to get spookier a bit faster.

Jan 13, 2021Started slow stayed slow, kept waiting for something interesting other then a drug dealer with a messed up life. Nothing happened to make me want to watch another episode.
