Critic Consensus: Though Nos2a2 strains to build the necessary atmosphere to pull off its ambitious premise, it does capture the spirit of Joe Hill's singular work and provide a new psychopath for Zachary Quinto to sink his teeth into.

News & Interviews for NOS4A2: Season 1
There are moments of striking imagery and immersive world-building... but the series' misaligned priorities rarely give you time to soak in the horror before dropping you back into drab dramatics about campus visits and mismanaged taxes.
The premiere doesn't exactly inspire confidence at first glance, but it's possible this a show with promise buried down deep that will take a bit of time to get the ball rolling.
Quinto and Cummings put in two fine performances and the story has a prestige TV sheen that makes us want to see more.
Though the series feels like it's about to take off at any moment, it struggles to get into gear.
