Critic Consensus: Anchored by Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Jonathan Majors' heroic performances, Misha Green's Lovecraft Country is a thrilling take on Lovecraftian lore that proves the Elder Gods aren't the only thing that goes bump in the cosmos.

News & Interviews for Lovecraft Country: Season 1
Lovecraft Country has an extraordinary ability to wink and keep a straight face at the same time, to be fun and serious simultaneously.
Misha Green was not responding to George Floyd when she wrote this episode-she was responding to the history of police violence visited upon people whose skin has been kissed by the sun. The only thing that's new is the mythical beings who save them.
The rules of the world Green has created remain confounding. Still, there's enough reason to watch, but patience will be necessary to see where it all will ultimately lead.
To call "Lovecraft Country" "wildly original" seems almost a quaint understatement. But it is wild. And original. Little doubt about that.
The show inadvertently simplifies the realities of white supremacy with its monster allegory, while treating the Black cast less as characters in their own right and more as vehicles for a sweeping critique of American racism.
The creativity on display is phenomenal, with writing that's layered with meanings and allusions, acting that brings the kind of emotional grounding you don't always find in genre stories, and visual realizations that are stunning.
