The Society: Season 1 Reviews

It needs to take a lesson from the teen dramas that came before it. The Society needs more mayhem.
May 7, 2019
Despite all its YA shenanigans, The Society is still just a little too... standard for its own good.
May 9, 2019
Even with an episode built around the teens staging an impromptu prom, The Society doesn't have many lighthearted or upbeat moments. It's about as much fun as attending a meeting of a high school debate club.
May 13, 2019
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.
May 9, 2019
Unfortunately, the show lacks a pulse.

[The Society] feels raw and authentic despite its fantastical concept, and it's doing really interesting things with its storytelling and characterisation.
July 9, 2019
What works most in the favor of The Society is the frustration it builds in a viewer. This is not a complaint, it's a compliment.
July 9, 2019
The Society, while far from perfect, holds its own in this crowded market and does exactly what it says on the tin.
May 16, 2019
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.

The cast are good, and frequently prove they are the main attraction for the ongoing plot. Despite the interesting mystery and narrative being shunned later in the show, the set-up is extremely well done, and incites a lot of intrigue.
May 24, 2019
A fresh take on utopia and anarchy under a teen driven society. Great performances and a decent script make this a decent and bingeworthy watch.
May 13, 2019
It is both fascinating and frustrating to watch the teens build an idealistic world and then struggle to maintain their values.

The Society is a compelling, haunting drama that is really all about power.

July 9, 2019
The Society is similarly well worth trying on for size, as much for its wit and resonance as its grabby storylines. It may not be revolutionary, but as the best teen drama currently out there it makes a stirring argument for starting over.
May 9, 2019
The series deftly balances its entertainment value with some thoughtful exploration of issues relevant to a young-adult audience. More engrossing than you might expect.
May 7, 2019
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.

May 20, 2019
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.

May 24, 2019
The Society revels in hammy mystery tropes and slapstick religious symbolism.
May 22, 2019
Although some of the teen drama aspect is predictable, the show puts a lot of thought into the societal element, and frequently inspires trains of thought.

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