The Nevers: Season 1 | Ratings & Reviews

"Feels like a copy of a copy of a copy."

"Equally incomprehensible and enlivening..."


"The humor feels arch, and the action... is mostly flat."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"The Nevers begins with an intriguing premise and develops it in such a plodding way that interest progressively fades with each successive hour."


"There is a lot going on in The Nevers. The only thing it seems to lack is a point."

Time MagazineTime Magazine

"The visuals dazzle and the action scenes thrill..."

Chicago Sun-TimesChicago Sun-Times

"There are a lot of other shows more worthy of investing your time in."


"For all its fantastical conceits and sometimes challenging world-building, The Nevers' real strength is in its cast."


"(The Nevers) gives us very little we haven't seen before."


"Much more than standard superhero fare..."

The AgeThe Age

"Muddled, overcrowded, and less-than-engaging despite its complex lore and flashy special effects."

Film School RejectsFilm School Rejects

"A show in desperate need of focus, and as episodes progress, more and more characters are added and the connection to the richest thematic throughline becomes increasingly tenuous."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"The Nevers might just be too messy to fix."


"A joy to watch and a thrill to follow."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Even when it errs towards the silly, it's fun and twisty enough to be an engaging page-turner of a show..."


"It feels empty, as if the scripts are just going through the motions..."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"There's a lot of that carelessness throughout The Nevers. Or maybe it's just that there's simply a lot happening in The Nevers, and it's hard to keep track of it all."
