Tv Season Info

A high-octane, hour-long action dramedy that follows the adventures of tough but tender FBI super-agent Will Chase (codename: "Whiskey Cavalier"), played by Scott Foley. Following an emotional breakup, Chase is assigned to work with badass CIA operative Francesca "Frankie" Trowbridge (codename: "Fiery Tribune"), played by Lauren Cohan. Together, they lead an inter-agency team of flawed, funny and heroic spies who periodically save the world (and each other) while navigating the rocky roads of friendship, romance and office politics.

Critic Reviews for Whiskey Cavalier Season 1

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (13)

Unlike NBC's new and deadly serious The Enemy Within, you likely won't find this one a chore or headache to watch.

Whiskey Cavalier knows what it is - which is a compliment, since many shows don't. And what it is is a good-looking action dramedy with good-looking people; it's aiming for a Mr. & Mrs. Smith sort of vibe.

Feb 26, 2019 | Full Review…

This isn't a regular spy drama, Whiskey Cavalier insists at every turn, but a fun spy drama that refuses to take itself too seriously. Yes, it's cheesy, but it's hard to hold that against the show too much when it's also half the point.

Feb 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Whiskey Cavalier can occasionally get by on the charms of its cast (Scott Foley, Lauren Cohan, Ana Ortiz, Tyler James Williams, Josh Hopkins), but the show continues to step all over the characters.

Feb 26, 2019 | Full Review…

There is nothing ground-breaking here. The series is pure popcorn, with lots of spy games and spy toys, pantomime villains, preposterous action sequences and nonsensical storylines. But that is part of the appeal.

Mar 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Aside from Foley and Cohan's natural chemistry, everything in Whiskey Cavalier feels too neatly put together.

Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…

This is peak filler ABC, a not-so-serious drama that just wants to, like, have a good time and stuff.

Feb 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Will I keep watching Whiskey Cavalier after this week? 100,000 percent.

Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…

The show has strong lead-ins in fellow ABC comedies, but is a comedy disguised as a one-hour drama.

Feb 28, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Whiskey Cavalier is more concerned with giving audiences a good time than a gritty, overly-complicated one.

Feb 27, 2019 | Full Review…

If you don't take anything away from Whiskey Cavalier Season 1 Episode 1, you should take away the fact that the series is unapologetic, cheesy, lovable, fun.

May 23, 2019 | Rating: 4.6/5 | Full Review…

It all makes for a charming new addition to ABC's lineup and one of the network's most immediately entertaining new shows in recent memory.

    This was a great show and you need to bring it back.
  • Sep 25, 2019
    It was entertaining but don't know why they cancelled it.
  • Sep 24, 2019
    Loved this show. Typical that they would cancel it
  • Sep 01, 2019
    Not bad, frequently on the verge of a being B-Series
  • Aug 19, 2019
    Great chemistry among the cast. Entertaining network styled restrained scripts managed to make the show fun to watch. Naturally, it was cancelled in its infancy by the all knowing penny pinching network gurus. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon...? You listening?

    Great, funny, show. All my favorites get cancelled.
  • Jul 28, 2019
    No existentialist agenda, no dystopian gloom.,just fun! i really wish it would continue.

    Love this show, it's all your favorite goodies in one package. You've got romance, action and adventure, light-hearted humor, espionage, independent women, and so on. It's also pretty clean, my husband and I would hold our breath until we could watch the next episode! We enjoy watching something wholesome like this because if my nephews or daughter walked in we aren't needing to shout cover your eyes or your ear. The actors are also fun and talented the dynamic is also really great the team has a lot of chemistry! Have been recommending the show to everyone I know!

    I really enjoyed this show. The episodes moved at a good pace, the characters were believable and the actors worked together quite well. I enjoyed all of the locations. It is really a pity the show was canceled. Much superior to CBS' Blood And Treasure which for some unfathomable reason was renewed for a second season even as it's ratings have gone consistently down as their season has progressed. Here's hoping some other network is smart enough to pick up Whiskey Cavalier and give it a second shot.

    Could use a little work on the characters lines, but it's entertaining.
